After we tasted many of the products, I sadly decided that I would sadly exclude Secret Breakfast from my final list and I went with "Princess Project" Pink Lemonade. It was the creamiest, most refreshing sorbet that I ever had, and I almost went back for seconds!

This place hypes itself bigger than they deserve. A reasonable but not over the top housemade ice cream. We had a sorbet - too watery, lacked flavor intensity - and a cutesy named for Obama ice cream, billed as dark chocolate with nuts and marshmallow. Chocolate was clearly NOT bittersweet or dark. Prices are premium however.

My friend and I sampled many of the flavors and they were all delicious! The secret breakfast melted in my mouth. The peppermint bark was was also great. Definitely have to visit if you like homemade ice cream!

My daughter lives in SF, and gave me a guided tour in Nov 2015. It wasn't complete, in her estimation, without sampling the ice cream flavors at Humphry's. I must say, I was very astonished that a beer-flavored ice cream could taste so good. The candied ginger was great, and the peppered pumpkin - outstanding. It was indeed a highlight... More

The peppered pumpkin and chocolate peanut butter ripple were both delicious. A bit icy however. Friendly staff made it a four star place.

I was really excited about coming here, and their adventurous flavours did live up to my expectations. The Thai satay flavour was suitably weird (I opted against it after tasting it) but the others were more palatable (especially Secret Breakfast- cornflakes and rum). Unfortunately the quality of the ice cream itself was not that good, as the texture was weird... More

Excellent and very creative ice cream! I tried their famous flavor that has Jim Beam and Corn Flakes ... amazing ... but ended up deciding to go with the decadent Peanut Butter Curry flavor (really really good if you like peanut butter flavor like me)!

I really wanted to like this place, my sister and niece loved it and insisted we visit two night in a row. I found it overpriced, with very skimpy servings for the price. What's worse, I did not like the ice cream, and I tried six flavors. Overall I found it much too sweet for my taste. I also just... More

Staying in Mission District

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
