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 :)

I came here on a hot summer day a couple months ago with a couple of friends. My friends and I got in line and waited for about 20 minutes before we got to the front. Bi-rite offers so many unique flavors. The guy helping me realized I was having a hard time and offered to let me try a couple flavors. After trying several flavors, I finally decided on Honey Lavender. The whole time I was being indecisive the Bi-rite worker was really patient and didn't rush me. I really appreciate the great service and taste unique flavored ice cream.

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

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!

Some of the best matcha green tea icecream I've ever tried! Keep in mind if you're heading here- scoop sizes are generous so even the kids size 1 scoop (so cheap) was a good amount for a tasty treat.

How did I not write about this delicious piece of awesome?!?! Their homemade ice cream is seriously amazing and I make sure I come here whenever I visit. EVEN.IF.IT'S.COLD. Flavors I love: * Lavender * Earl Grey * Coffee (STRONG) * Creme Brulee NOTE: There is always a line. But if you just want to buy a pint from the freezer, you don't need to wait in line. They can help you right away. The place can get crowded, so make sure you have a buddy save you a seat to sit cuz the place is small. SERVICE: They are nice and fast. They let you sample them! YAY! OVERALL: This needs to be a MUST GO TO place for SF.

Much has been written about this place. I personally like the inventive flavors and love their matcha ice cream, but I refuse to stop here because the lines are insane. I've had better luck on weekdays after dinner.
