Try the Harvey Milk and honey Graham's. Very yummy. Also see documentaries and movies about this assassinated hero in SF history.

If I can wait out the line, I like to stop by this place's Ferry Building outpost for a scoop, or as I did this morning, an Ice cream float (today featuring Coke from an old fashioned curvy glass bottle and "Secret Breakfast" ice cream (corn flakes and bourbon). At $8 it's a pricey treat, but worth it occasionally. A hipster's delight, judging from the high proportion of young bearded guys with carefully folded up jeans showing their style, but also attractive to normal people and tourists alike.

O. M. G. Best ice cream ever. I had the Secret Breakfast (bourbon ice cream with cornflake cookie crumbles) AND a scoop of smoked sea salt and chocolate ice cream. Perfectly creamy and rich and silky texture. Flavors were EXACTLY as if I was chewing a spoonful of cornflake cookie and milk with a bourbon back (on the Secret Breakfast that is) and the chocolate in the smoked sea salt chocolate ice cream was the richest and un-chalky tasting chocolate I've ever had. Top this off with the endless sample spoons and patient and friendly service. I am a fan for life.

Informed of food allergies: peanuts. Asked if they could wash scooper (they have a peanut butter ice cream). A very thoughtful and caring employee was going to open up a whole new container of ice cream to take out one scoop. Unusual flavors of ice cream. Went to the Ferry Building the day before, less choices and ice cream seemed melted, very soft. Harrison St had a better consistency.

Thanks to this establishment, my life is now divided into two distinct time periods: my lost years before June 7, 2014 at 3:46 p.m, the day I tasted Secret Breakfast ice cream, and now everything that comes after. Yesterday it would have seemed silly to sell my house and move to SF to be closer to an ice cream purveyor. Today that notion makes perfect sense. Holy bejesus, what an ice cream!
