I always tell everyone, I'd fly to San Francisco in a heartbeat if only for Mitchell's Ice Cream! Simple flavors, both classic and tropical, you won't run out of options. I personally love the avocado, ube, macapuno, and cantaloupe (which is, sadly, a seasonal flavor)....More

This is long standing San Francisco institution that is a must visit for everyone. Be sure to get a number and get ready to wait for a bit but the line does go quickly.

I love this ice cream. They have been in business since the 1950's. Open daily from 11:00am to 11:00pm I love the variety of flavors made and offered. I try something new everytime. They make mango, coconut, Ube sorbets. Mitchell's makes seasonal ice cream flavors...More

This is the best ice cream I have ever had. It is creamy, but not too creamy. I felt like I had just eaten something good for me. SO worth it.

My AirBnB during the first half of my stay in San Francisco was located in the buzzy and friendly, ethnically diverse community of Bernal Heights, high up above the city, with fabulous views from the local park. My hosts had rated this ice cream parlour...More
