Bi-Rite Creamery Ice Cream
We make all of our ice cream by hand, in small batches, on 18th Street–right in the heart of San Francisco’s historic Mission District. In the bakery adjoining our ice cream kitchen, we make everything that goes into our ice cream, whether it’s brownies, peanut brittle, marshmallows, or the snickerdoodles for Ricanelas! We have lots of homemade toppings to jazz up your ice cream, including almond toffee, graham crackers, and spiced pecans–to name just a few of the most popular. And don’t forget to ask for our decadent homemade hot fudge to top it off!
Straus Family Creamery, only 45 miles away, delivers all of the organic milk, cream, and eggs for our recipes. Our Salted Caramel, Roasted Banana, Honey Lavender, and other flavors draw lines that sometimes wrap around the block.
We’re now proud to offer soft serve made with buffalo milk from Double 8 Dairy in Petaluma, CA. This rich, creamy milk makes for an exceptional flavor and consistency. Flavors change every day. It’s not to be missed! Exclusively available from our Soft Serve window at Bi-Rite Creamery on 18th Street.
