“Great ice cream gem.”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

The owners are super friendly! And they make a mean sundae ;-). I will definitely be going back the next time I need an ice cream fix. Highly recommend this place to anyone.

“As good as they say”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Had a hot fudge sundae prior to leaving San Francisco... windy and chilly day, but SOOO good! Less touristy than Ghirardelli, with more interesting selection of ice cream flavors.

“Just try the coconut ice cream....”
Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

I've definitely left my heart in SF..... its in the coconut ice cream at Norman's!

You must try the ice cream and wonderful customer service. Came across the place by accident and with only 3 days left until home, I will be there daily....

“A must every time we visit from the UK”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

What a lovely little ice cream shop. We first stumbled upon it last year during our first trip to SF. We were staying at the adjacent hotel and a lovely girl at reception recommended Norman's. He's a real gentleman and he remembered us from last year. My personal favourites are the white pistachio and purple yam flavours, while my partner favours the banana and Oreo flavours. He is a one of the landmarks in SF for us and is a perfect expample of the kind of person that makes SF so inviting. Thank you, Norman!

Until next time,
J and J (your fans from Edinburgh, UK)
