We live in the neighborhood so I've never considered writing a review of Mitchell's until I just reviewed another creamery and compared it to Mitchells. We've been coming to Mitchell's for special nights with kids, birthday cakes, hot days, last days of school, for so...More

I have passed Mitchell's many times over the years but never got around to trying it until just the other day. One of the reasons I hadn't tried them until now was because of the parking situation in the neighborhood. Though they have a parking...More

We came across this emporium of delight by accident when returning from dinner one night. If you like ice cream and are not dieting it is a treasure. I especially enjoyed the ice-cream loaded shakes. Worth a visit.

Yes, they have the standard flavors but so many other interesting choices. We went late on a Thursday night so didn't have to stand in line. Worth standing in line for if that's what you have to do!

This was my 1st time here. The ice cream was great. I had a double kid's scoop - cantaloupe, & Mexican chocolate, and booth were good. The service was fast. They allowed me to try several flavors. The line was minimal, as opposed to Bi-Rite,...More

I'm not sure if Mitchell's is the best ice cream in town, but it must be close, and that it's so clearly a neighborhood favorite puts it at the top of the list for me. We were able to walk to Mitchell's from our Noe...More
