Homemade, frozen goodness 6/10/2006

Avacado ice cream? Purple yam? Guava? Yes yes and yes...Mitchell's, a local institution, was opened in 1953 by the Mitchell brothers at the corner of 29th and San Jose and has been a Mission and SF institution ever since. Stilled owned by the Mitchell family, they still make their ice cream with more butterfat than the average joint and you can tell. Rich, creamy, and definitely NOT on your diet, it's some of best ice cream around town. The fact that they offer such an inspired mix of intriguing and classic flavors, is just the icing on the ice cream cake. They also offer pre-pack half-gallons, sundaes, shakes, malts, cakes and other frozen treats. One note the shop is small, -- just a counterfront and no chairs -- so plan to take your ice cream to go. more

Mitchell's 4/26/2006

The venerable Mitchell's ice cream has been serving homemade goodness since 1953.

Hyped, but also good 4/16/2006

I tried Mitchells' (you can also get this ice cream at Shaw's in West Portal and a place in Pacifica) because a friend said it was amazing. I did really like it, but didn't think it was necessarily any different than any other ice cream. That being said, I would definitely go there again! more

My Review 9/14/2005

If you're ever in the mood for homemade ice cream you've got to check out this ice cream shop. It's family owned and the ice cream is made fresh. There's so many choices to choose from that you'll want to try each one. The portions are large too. If you're really hungry get a banana split. There's always a line so you know that this place serves good ice cream. more
