We came here wanting to try Sam's Sundae on "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" with the olive oil and accidentally went into the market across the street (which by the way has really fresh produce and great cheeses), but instead the Afternoon Snack Sundae caught our eye when we read "roasted banana" ice cream. The flavors blended well together with the roasted banana ice cream and home-made graham crackers which had a caramelized taste. Topped with fresh caramel sauce yum wise choice! I'm not a big fan of chocolate ice cream anyways so this was an interesting flavor to try. They don't have too many flavors here as they do change them throughout the season and many of their flavors are unique. This is the first time I've ever heard or tried a roasted banana ice cream. Lucky for us we went on a winter's weekday so there was barely a line. One time we drove by in the summer and the line was around the corner! Crossing my fingers I can come back soon.

It can be freezing outside. I can be stuffed from a delightful dinner. Hot. Cold. Whatever. There's always room in my heart (and stomach) for Bi-Rite. I've never had a flavor at Bi-Rite that I didn't like. While I've never had a flavor at Bi-Rite that I didn't enjoy, the salted caramel is, by far, my favorite. That flavor will, without fail, hit the spot.
Other tips: Their lines can be rough sometimes, but it's often worth it. Also, if it's sunny, go eat and people watch in Dolores Park. It's a great way to spend an afternoon or whatever in SF.

Fun flavors and long lines is what you get at Bi-Rite. If you don't mind popsicles or if you're only trying to get prepackaged icecream, you can go towards the front right and cut the line! ;)

Bi-Rite is one of the most popular ice cream shops in SF for a good reason: it's phenomenal. It's creamy and buttery, but not over-the-top like Mitchell's. It has interesting flavors, but not too weird like Humphry Slocombe. Bi-Rite is the most consistently-delicious ice cream in the city.
Over the course of many visits, I've tried numerous flavors, but the ones that really stand out to me are...
Ricanellas (Snickerdoodle) = My favorite ice cream flavor at Bi-Rite. It has the perfect amount of cinnamon sweetness, with fat chunks of snickerdoodle cookies mixed in. I can eat this all day everyday and never get sick of it.
Coffee Toffee = If you love coffee, you'll love this one. I'm actually not a fan of toffee because I think it's way too sweet, but the toffee in this actually blends with coffee quite well. Great flavor.
Olive Oil = I love olive oil ice cream and I think Bi-Rite does it really well. I still like the Olive Oil at Humphry Slocombe better, but Bi-Rite is a solid second.
Burnt Butter = Delicious. The brown sugar flavor works perfectly with the butter. Good with almonds.
Bi-Rite is one of those places that's so popular and well-loved that you just want to dislike it so that you're not a sheep in the "fad" herd. Try all you want, but Bi-Rite is just too damn good to dislike.

One of San Francisco's best places for ice cream. I love the chocolate variations. There is the basic version and a spiced Mexican chocolate. Both have a really creamy consistency with just the right amount of sweetness, but the Mexican chocolate has a spicy kick to it.

One of my favorite ice cream shops in San Francisco! Recipe for a perfect weekend day: Go to bi-rite and pick up a cone. Then proceed to walk across the street up to Dolores Park. Put down your blanket, unpack the booze, and you've got yourself a perfect picnic!
