San Francisco: Bi-Rite Creamery & Bakeshop

Bi-Rite is one of those crazy spots in SF that demands lines all the time. Known for their handmade ice cream with exotic flavors, it's an extremely popular spot with both the locals and tourists. Of course, organic!

You can get ice cream, frozen yogurt, ice cream sandwiches, pastries, cookies, brownies, and even ordering a wild sundae with all their exotic flavors. They are known for their Salted Caramel ice cream so of course I opted for the ice cream.

The line for frozen yogurt and other baked goods. Waaaay shorter than the ice cream line.

All sorts of sauce on sale to pour on your ice cream at home.

Inside of the store is really small so the line goes out the door. Average wait is about 30-40minutes.

After trying about 5 flavors, I picked the Salted Caramel and the Strawberry Balsamic. The Salted Caramel is just.. at the top of one of the best I've had. Creamy, sweet, and just a little bit of salt. As for the Strawberry Balsamic, can't really taste the balsamic, but it enhances the strawberry flavor, which is a good thing. I love Haagen Daz's strawberry ice cream the best and now Bi-Rite has topped them!

Melon Sorbet. Love melon? Love those Korean melon gum? Get this!

Snickerdoodle, which is essentially peanut butter ice cream, and is a must with peanut butter lovers, with Honey Lavender. Was very interesting. Not a big fan of lavender but most girls love it..


After finishing mine, I could've probably just bought a quart, sat on the sidewalk and have the time of my life haha. But really, if you're in the area and haven't tried it yet, do it. Who cares if it is raining or if it's hella cold in SF, it's worth it.
