Mitchell’s Ice Cream: A San Francisco favorite since 1953

The U.S. enjoys an average of 48 pints of ice cream per person, per year, more than any other country.  That’s over 30 million pints consumed in San Francisco alone!  This is a fact I’m sure the Mitchell family knows all too well.
Mitchell’s Ice Cream has been a San Francisco dessert destination for nearly 60 years.  Their super-premium ice cream is made fresh daily from only the best ingredients from here and abroad.  It’s no wonder Mitchell’s always has a line out the door, even on the coldest San Francisco night.
Mitchell’s is especially known for their exotic tropical flavors like Ube (purple yam), Buko (baby coconut), and Langka (jackfruit). But if tropical fruit isn’t your thing, they’ve got all the traditional flavors and then some. My personal favorites are Chocolate Caramel Crackle (chocolate ice cream with swirls of caramel and chocolate covered toffee) and Grasshopper Pie (mint ice cream with fudge, chocolate chips, and oreos).  Other popular flavors include Mexican Chocolate (blend of dark chocolate and cinnamon) and White Pistachio (roasted pistachios). Get your ice cream in a cup, cone, cake, or cookie sandwich — either way is sure to please.
The shop has been through some changes, but Mitchell’s still stands at its original location on San Jose and 29th.   Best of all, Mitchell’s is open until 11pm everyday so you have plenty of time to get your ice cream fix.  Be prepared to take a number and wait outside, or call ahead and pick up a pint or half-gallon to go.
