Had a cup with 3 scoops: honey lavender, brown sugar, and some kind of chocolate. The honey lavender was the perfect balance between refreshing and sweet. The brown sugar was delicious and had a great texture. They have lots of other unique flavors but this is definitely quality ice cream that is essential to any food adventure around the mission. Just try to get in line earlier before it gets crazy long!

This is my favorite ice cream place in SF. The equivalent in NYC would be Ample Hills Creamery. The line looks long but it moves fast. Also, the staff are very friendly and don't mind if you try a lot of flavors before you decide on one. My friend and I got the salted caramel and the roasted banana. I also tried the lavender honey and earl grey from my other friends as well. The flavors were all so different and tasted not too sweet. I'm excited to come back and try other flavors.

Don't let the long line deter you. It's worth the wait because they have such a unique selection of flavors. And of course they are all yummy!

Very mediocre and pretty expensive ice cream! Nothing special except long lines. Every time I'm in SF I try to find really good ice cream in this place and figure out why all the lines are here. But no! All ice creams are very so so:( Lines attract people, that's it

"Korean Inspired" food. A fusion place that is great at introducing Korean spices in contemporary dishes relatable to an average American. The Stone Pot was well spiced and accompanied, but sparse in quantity as we're most of their dishes. The dumpling are delicious with the accompanying broth. Warning it is extremely RICH. Chicken wings are well brazed and moist, but the sauce is tartly strong with its robust vinegar base. Chocolate souffle dessert is light and airy. The sauce and drizzle of fruit reduction increases the sweetness. The cream needs to be slightly richer to punch up the desert. Staff is very attentive.

If you come here on a nice, warm, sunny day... be prepared to wait in a very long line. But I would say it's worth the wait. If you don't want to wait, pro tip: buy a pint and skip the line! That might sound a little crazy, but if you have a couple of friends with you, why not? Save money, save time, everybody wins. One of my favorite things to do is buy a pint, bring it to Dolores park, and watch all the wackos do their thing. My favorite flavor is the malted vanilla. I love the sea salt caramel as well, but malted vanilla is where it's at! They also have a soft serve window, which usually has much shorter lines. I tried a chocolate/sea salt caramel swirl, and let me tell you, it was divine.

These days, a visit to SF doesn't seem complete without a trip to Bi-Rite Creamery. It was a nice sunny day in the Mission district, so there was quite a line, which I guess isn't unusual, even on not-so-nice days. It was actually good, because it gave me time to look at all their offerings of the day. Salted Caramel was #1 on my list, had to try that, but what to get for the 2nd scoop? There was toasted bananas, vegan chocolate, honey lavender (!), and a bunch of other stuff. I figured toasted bananas would be good w/the salted caramel so those were the flavors I got. Mm, excellent texture and flavor, not too sweet or icy. It was almost like a gelato consistency. My friend got the hot fudge brownie sundae, which was AMAZING, with the warm brownie and spiced pecans. Definitely warrants a repeat visit the next time I'm in town.

I can't imagine the city without birite. The staff is incredibly kind letting you sample as many things as you want (no matter how long the line is). While I'm more a fan of their soft serve, I have zero problems standing in line for their main attraction. Needless to say, I look forward to the chocolate and caramel pairing every Friday :)
