If there was any a store that I wish I lived on the same street, it would be this one: Bi-Rite Creamery. It always has lines out the door, with people waiting with excitement and anticipation, wondering what flavors they are going to get, knowing that they will pick the ones they always have come in for...
Located in Mission Dolores, it's adjacent to Dolores Park, which makes it the perfect stop after a hot day laying out on the grass (I also love going to Bi-Rite Market across the street and getting a sandwich and some side salads for a Picnic in the park!)
The whole street that it's located on is a veritable food fest, you have Delfina and Pizzeria Delfina where you can get some of the best Italian food in the city, Tartine Bakery and the Dolores Park Cafe-all good food..

The Bi-Rite Creamery also has baked goods which is another storefront next door, I wish we had known earlier, cuz then we would have bought some muffins and pastries for the hotel!
The thing that I LOVE about Bi-Rite is that they are local and they make small batches of ice cream that have an intense amount of unique flavors that elevate the definition of Ice Cream. All natural, no more than five ingredients in each batch, who wouldn't love this place!!!
My ALL TIME FAVORITE: Salted Caramel, with Ricanella (Spanish Cinnamon) at a close second-which is usually where I stop...But on this occasion I decided to add one more flavor: the Brown Sugar with Ginger Caramel Swirl- this was a heavenly combination! I also enjoy the Honey Lavender, but it's hard to mix it with the others that I like, so it kinda gets left out a lot....
So when in SF, do NOT miss the opportunity to go to Bi-Rite Creamery and get yourself some Ice Cream, you're an idiot if you don't like it....(just kidding....well....not really)
