Why locals recommend it
Rain or shine, the line here is always out the door, but don't worry, it moves fast. It’s a local favorite with unique ethnic flavors like Mexican Hot Chocolate and Dulce de Leche. All of their ice cream is homemade and arguably some of the best in SF. It really retains that flavor of the Mission. Their ice cream cakes are amazing, and if you want to skip the ice cream and just get a cake, you don’t have to wait in line.
Tips from locals
It’s one of the best homemade ice cream shops in town. Is there more to say than that? I should say it’s always busy rain or shine, but especially shine. Take a number as soon as you get there - worth the wait.
Best Ice Cream place in this area. People line up, even when it's cold and foggy out. It's a SF local favorite and has been around for over 50 years.
