You might have to search a bit to find Norman's. It is tuck away in a brick courtyard of what used to be a Delmonte cannery. I don't know if the sign is lit up at night but during the day you have to hunt for the giant Ice cream cone hanging in the shadows. It is one of those little gems that you stumble across and are so glad you found it. I don't know if it was Norman who served us but he couldn't have been any nicer. The ice cream sundae we had was super yummy. They only take cash but I think that helps them keep the prices reasonable.

Norman's is located inside the courtyard of the Old Delmonte cannery and since you won't walk by this place by accident you need to put it on your list and seek it out.
This is a small ice cream shop that makes delicious sundaes at very reasonable prices. The person behind the counter could not have been any more friendly, overall this was a great experience and a really tasty treat after walking up the hills of SF.

This little shop has great ice cream and yummy homemade chocolate sauce. I'd recommend the sundae. Also, the owner is extremely nice. We had a great time talking to him.
