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 :)

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.

Best ice cream in the bay area. Full flavors and a texture that just melts in your mouth like a sweet dream. Salted Caramel is a must try, along with anything chocolate. Expect a long line at all times, but you can skip it and go directly to the counter if all you want is a prepackaged pint.

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!

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.

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.

Bi-Rite, another amazing ice cream shop in the city. They are best known for their salted caramel ice cream flavor. It’s more sweet than salty for sure. Also tried their honey lavender Sonoma honey flavor, it’s on the sweeter side so couldn’t eat too much of it. Both ice creams were nice and creamy! Expect long lines (they have a designated line along the side walk just for ice cream).
