I can’t believe that in the year that I’ve been in the area, this past weeked was my first taste of Bi-Rite Creamery ice cream. We came to the city for an exhibit opening and dinner. Dinner was planned at the lovely Delfina’s, but we had to wait to be seated since it’s quite popular on a Friday night. So as we walked around, we pasted the Bi-Rite ice cream shop and I just had to try some. Even my friends who were cold (it IS still winter here) took one taste and had to go buy their own. I tried the Orange Cardamon and Chocolate flavours. Just divine.
Their ice cream is hand-made on premises with organic and seasonal ingredients.
It is well worth a side trip, but you will have difficulty deciding between ice cream at Bi-Rite, or a tart at Tartine Bakery, which is just at the other end of the block. Or just have both ; )
