Ice Cream in the Fog

Recently two new ice cream shops have opened in San Francisco's Mission District that make creamy frozen treats with unique and creative flavors.

On 18th Street between Guerrero and Dolores Streets is Bi-Rite Creamery and Bakeshop. Opening about two years ago, Bi-Rite draws long lines on even cold days. They serve flavors like salted caramel, balsamic strawberry, honey lavender, and more. Made with organic dairy from Straus Family Farms and other locally sourced ingredients, Bi-Rite ice cream is rich, smooth, and delicious!
About five and a half blocks south and six blocks east at Harrison and 24th Streets is Humphry Slocombe. This new addition to the San Francisco dessert scene also has some fantastic flavors, including balsamic caramel. Their signature flavor is Secret Breakfast – which contains bourbon and cornflakes and had tasted nothing like I expected but was very good! You can follow @HumphrySlocombe on Twitter to hear about newest flavors they are mixing up!

Both shops have received praises in the press and blogosphere; including a spot on Top 10 Ice Cream Shops in Bon Appetit Magazine for Bi-Rite Creamery and Bakeshop and Best New Ice Cream Shop in SF Weekly for Humphry Slocombe.

Both fabulous ice cream destinations are perfect spots to visit in the summer months ahead!
