Me & my family visited San Francisco recently, we're from England. We went to this ice cream bar 5 times & 2 of the times were on the same day. This place is so yummy. I had the chocolate & peanut butter milkshake (which is made from the ice creams) and it was incredible. Recommend this place to anyone visiting San Francisco ! Yum yum yum !

Just as I remember as a kid. Sticky, Chewy, Chocolate and Swiss Orange Chip! Mmm... Two out of this world flavors. More expensive than when I was little, but still the same great taste. There's a park half a block down the street where you can sit and enjoy this frozen treat!

Good ice cream and decently generous. Asked for hot fudge and got plenty of it. We walked in just minutes before close but it's easy to see the staff would be upbeat and fun.

delicious ice cream apparently made in small batches (on site?) Seems like one of the best I have eaten

Great ice cream, friendly staff. Walk down 3 buildings for a slice of pizza @ Za's pizza first. That is what the locals do!
