Polly Ann's has been a favorite for many years. There are a wide variety of flavors and it is always fun to experiment. American Beauty (Rose pedals), Bumpy Freeway (Rocky Road and Rice ice cream are all not-your-everyday flavors. On this visit I had banana...More

Even though my daughters family lives on the other side of the city, Polly Ann Ice Cream is an automatic car trip across the city for their unusual and creative flavors. They have traditional options too, but we always have to try one of their...More

This ice cream is well worth the muni ride away from the touristy parts of San Francisco. There are dozens of flavors, many of which are unique and all of which are delicious. I am particularly fond of their coconut and fruit flavors.

Not your standard chain ice cream store. Sells a lot of very unusual flavors, such as mango, taro, green tea, plus standard flavors and mixtures with original names. They rotate the flavors, so not all are available at all times. Seems always to have customers...More
