Science time. If you love dry ice and bespoke things then Smitten is your jam. The made-to-order ice cream spot now has three locations in the city (Marina, Pac Heights & Hayes Valley), but we’re still partial to the original in Hayes with a funkier setup in a glorified shipping container. While the classic flavors are good, the seasonal options here are the move. Pecan pie in fall, blueberry and corn in summer - and they make them just for you. Because you are a special snowflake.
