I am a massive fan of ice cream and try local producers when I travel throughout the UK and further afield. I would highly recommend Norman's Ice Cream at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco it is honestly one of the best I have ever tasted. Make the effort and seek it out; beautiful!

This ice shop is located in the Cannery. They serve Mitchell's famous and award winning ice cream. The flavors they carry are the typical favorites along with some very yummy tropical flavors. The best part is you don't have to go to Mitchell's, try to find a parking space, and wait in a long line. The location is within walking distance from Fisherman's wharf and their prices are very reasonable! Can't wait to go back!

We enjoyed the coconut ice cream but thought it could be better. We sampled a few others and they were very tasty. Staff was quite friendly.

What can you say about ice cream that, even on a cold rainy night in San Francisco, makes you yearn to visit? Norman's is absolutely THE BEST ice cream you will ever find. the location makes it a bit hard to find, but trust me, go out of your way to get there, you WILL NOT be disappointed. It is that good.

I had the coconut and banana (2 separate flavors) and the coconut left me shaking my head wondering how can anyone make it that good. The banana is rich, creamy, and sincerely beats Ben & Jerry's. And I LOVE Ben & Jerry's.

My friend had a chocolate shake that he described as perfect.

Say hi to Norman behind the counter. He's a great guy with two kids. Priscilla, his wife, also works there. Notice the Priscilla license plate behind the counter

If you're on Fisherman's Wharf, do yourself a favor and stop by. Even on a cold, rainy night you will be pleasantly surprised.
