Made Fresh Daily
Our ice cream is freshly made in our shop daily, starting with a rich 16% butterfat base. Our milk comes from hormone-free cows that graze in open pastures. Most of our flavors are gluten free and do not contain eggs, but please call us at (415) 648-2300 to ask about specific flavors if you have a gluten or egg allergy
SPECIALTIES
Choose From Our Many Specialties:
Cones & Cups
Taste the difference. We make super-premium ice cream, made with 16% butterfat, and that's what makes our ice cream taste so rich and creamy. With over 40 flavors to choose from, there's always something new to try. Whether it's on a waffle cone, sugar cone, plain cone, waffle bowl, or in a cup, the options are endless. Most of our flavors are gluten free and do not contain eggs, but please call us at (415) 648-2300 to ask about specific flavors if you have a gluten or egg allergy
Sundaes & Splits
Get creative! Order an ice cream sundae or banana split any way you want it. Choose your flavors and toppings, which include hot fudge, caramel, mango, strawberry, chocolate, marshmallow and pineapple. Or try one of our Sundaes of the Month: Oreo Cookie Explosion, Mammoth Mint, Peanut Butter Blitz and many more. With a mound of our homemade whipped cream and a cherry on top, we're sure it'll make your day!
Milkshakes & Smoothies
Choose from any of our 40 fabulous flavors for our 16 oz. and 24 oz. custom blended milkshakes. We'll make your shake just the way you like it, and for an added treat, top it off with our homemade whipped cream. We also make fruit smoothies, old-fashioned ice cream floats and freezes. We have something for everyone!

We make this traditional Filipino dessert with mongo beans and sweet beans, buko, langka, ube, pineapple, kaong (palm fruit), evaporated milk, shaved ice and a scoop of our delicious ice cream. It's a novel and refreshing dessert that we make from late Spring until early Fall each year. Treat your taste buds to a new adventure!
