Mitchell's Ice Cream

$$$$(415) 648-2300
Hours:THURSDAY11:00AM to 11:00PM

Mitchell’s has been around since 1953, and these days the ice cream spot is synonymous with “quintessential San Francisco.” Flavors like banana, cantaloupe, ube, and buko are what usually draws long lines to this small creamery on San Jose Avenue. The best part is their ice cream comes in endless forms - cups, cones, sundaes, splits, milkshakes, and ice cream sandwiches, all of which you can order at the front door to go.
