"It's worth the wait" and "extra weight" insist fans of the wares at this "cute" Mission creamery and bakeshop, where the "ridiculously creamy" scoops in a variety of "witty and unique flavors" are "gourmet as gourmet ice cream gets" ; there's "limited seating" , but "friendly" staffers manage to keep "round-the-corner-lines" moving and gladly offer "samples" , while impatient types can always "grab a pint" to go or "try the soft-serve window instead."

Cute small creamery with a baked goods window attached. Workers there are great and ice cream flavors are fun! Had their roasted banana which was just alright, not too much of a banana flavor. Meyer lemon is straight up delicious cookie dough. Honey lavender gives you a strong lavender flavor without it being too overpowering. Mint chocolate chip is a nice subtle flavor. Their scoop portions on a cone are usually big depending on who is making your cone. The sundaes are smaller than the norm for good price which is nice, i can finish one by myself. The sea salt flakes are amazing. :)

The line goes fast! No really, they are super speedy and it's worth the wait. Favorites are salted caramel or honey lavender. Staff is very friendly and will not only let you try every flavor, but encourages it! Give it a try at least once and chances are you'll be back when you're in the area.

With all they hype, I didn't think it would live up to the expectations. It was a great ice cream cone. Really interesting flavors, all the samples I tried were delicious. I appreciate the no-frills approach to their flavors here. It's obvious that they use good ingredients, making these in small batches. I have the Salted Caramel and Coffee Toffee Ice Cream - totes amazing. The staff here is so nice - makes the experience a good one. The creamery is located in the grocery store, and I hear there is always a line. We waited maybe 30 minutes, but I'm glad we did. Love this place. I get the hype, it's that good.
