This is my favorite obsession. My new favorite in town, I had my first froyo from here and I think it could get better, I better go somewhere else.



Great shop. I like the decorations on the wall and the way they smile whenever they are in front of a customer, great froyo too, one of the best in town.



I like it in here, fresh vibes and pretty much what you are looking for a relaxing place in the city. Lots of great flavors and toppings to choose form.

A mecca for the soul in an absolutely blistering hot day

Today was one of those days.

Good, but overpriced

Good, maybe even great ice cream, but way overpriced.
Save some money and buy it at one of the many small places around town that feature Mitchells.
There own store location on San jose Ave is more expensive than the places that sell their ice cream
Go for the UBE purple ice cream.

Not exactly excellent.

Everyone's quite mad for Mitchell's and why pray tell? I mean it's pretty good, sure, but it's not exemplary.

I suppose the fact that they're a local company is a good thing, and San Franciscans do appreciate a good thing, but they're just good, you know? Not exactly excellent.


Mitchells ice cream was a plac...

Mitchells ice cream was a place my friend and I found randomly. We were in the city looking for bikes when we walked by this place and the line was super long. We figured it was good if there was nothing else nearby and everyone came by for the ice cream. We took a number and waited about 20 minutes to be served. I tried the mango ice cream and it was one of the best ice creams ever. Really smooth and not too sweet. I got the pralines and cream which was also excellent and my friend agreed. People came and just bought quarts of it to take home too. It's a nice little spot to get ice cream and enjoy the day.

Cold or Sunny, it's still time for Mitchell's

Forget picking the ideal warm sunny day perfect for munching on ice cream. When you are accustomed to highs in the 40s, such a day in San Francisco is a mere rarity. Yet there is a place where people flock to devour their favorite sub-zero treat. You?ll find this oasis of flavor at a place called Mitchell?s.
Serving the Bay Area since 1953, Mitchell?s has won the hearts of ice cream connoisseurs young and old along with recognition from a number of publications. Mitchell?s tantalizing flavors have been featured in Travel Magazine, The Food Network, San Francisco Weekly and the San Francisco Bay Guardian.
?It?s the best. People from all over come here for it?s old neighborhood feel. There?s lots of places in the city and lot?s of change, and this is one of the few icons left in the city,? said Cristian Flores, at Mitchell?s for an after-work snack. ?Plus the parking is a plus, plus!?
Whether its during its in the late afternoon when school gets out, or on a Saturday night as families go out for a late night treat, or a pit stop for a couple after a date, Mitchell?s packs the people in as well as the ice cream.
?I?ve been coming here for over 20 years and I?ve been bringing him here since he was 3,? said city resident Wendy Storch as she huddled out on the front bench with her son Nigel, 9.
?We come here when it?s hot or cold,? said Nigel when asked if he and his mom had a tradition.
Not only through its consistency with its service, hours, and a pleasant experience, Mitchell?s has maintained its success in becoming as dynamic as the neighborhood it is located in.
?We?ve served special flavors since the sixties,? explains current manager Linda Mitchell, daughter of founder and owner Larry Mitchell. ?A Filipino fruit importer sampled our ice cream and talked with my dad about using imported mango to create a new flavor. He took a chance, and with a changing neighborhood, we found ourselves with a positive turnout.?
