We were visiting a friend who lives in San Francisco and she took us Mitchell's which is in her neighborhood. She warned us that the line was usually long but we found a parking place in the back easily and there weren't many people. Big...shop with a great selection and it has a neighborhood feel to it.More

Went with my family to relax after a touring day. We were not disappointed. We have been here a few other times when visiting my mum. Single scoop is about $6.50, double is about $8.50. They have their own parking, that makes the experience even...better. You can also sample before you pick and they have touchless check out. I have to mention it, as it is a truly refreshing experience, where staff are patient and pleasant to deal with. Don't forget to tip!!! Will certainly come back again.More

Didn’t try any of the exotic/tropical flavors, but went with the New York Cherry. Good ice cream but wouldn’t call it spectacular.

This place seems to be crowded regardless of when you get here. There always seem to be people waiting to have their orders taken but the staff is attentive and speedy so you could get served quickly. They have a variety of ice cream and...all are tasty and creamy. Not the cheapest around as their prices could match that of Hagen Daaz easy but if you like ice cream, you gotta try here. For those who haven't been here, there's a parking lot in the back of the shop. You have to drive past the front door, turn right and immediately turn right into their lot. Do not try to enter via San Jose as that's exit only ...More

I have been going to Mitchell’s ice cream for over 20 yrs. The best ice cream in the city. Better value if you get a pint and share.😋

Wonderful ice cream, amazing Phillipino flavors (in addition to more expected ones) and lovely waiting time with other people also set to enjoy themselves. The place has a little parking lot behind and a good vibe.

Try the Mixed tropical ice cream if you are in fruity flavor and sweetness or red bean as my 2nd choice.

Rich, creamy, unusual flavors like baby coconut and other tropical treats. Always a line but worth every moment; and we don’t stand in lines except in rare circumstances. Just go!

Mitchell's ice cream can't be beat. And even though you can buy it in other stores and supermarkets, there's nothing like experiencing Mitchell's nice cream parlor in the Mission district.

lines can be long on hot days but worth it. Meet and greet people while standing in line. Located on Guerrero Street, easy to get to, parking lot available. Lots of flavors you can only find here.

I have never had ice cream better than here. The flavors are original and varied. This is not a restaurant....it's an ice cream store.
