Bi-Rite Creamery, San Francisco

I found Bi-Rite Creamery while reading a photographer's blog about a must-do snack stop.  This was one of our highlight treats during our Memorial Day weekend and a definite return trip!

We passed the Bi-Rite Creamery window (they also make baked goods and sell grocery items) and decided to stop at the market first.  Their "picnic cakes"which are the size of jumbo muffins.  Yum.

Bi-Rite Creamery is part of Bi-Rite Market, a local organic, "good food" SF neighborhood market  across from the street from the creamery.  Lauren worriedly mentioned someone was looking at us.

As we got closer, we laughed because it was a cardboard man perched in a window "looking" back at us!

In a time when businesses are striving to increase their profits, it was inspiring to see this window sign.

The simple exterior of the market

We stopped by the flower section to look at the green snowballs

These colorful snowballs looks like hydrangeas to me.  Lovely green color.

Aren't hydrangeas beautiful?

Amen to this sign!  Coming from an agricultural community, I support our local farmers.

Back to the creamery.  While waiting in line, I was looking at these.

It was so hard decide on flavors.  

Teddy's banana split!  The bananas were hand-caramelized with a small torch.  Absolutely delicious!

I shared with Kirk so we chose 5 scoops of 4 flavors:  salted caramel, ricanelas (cinnamon with snickerdoodles), brown sugar with ginger caramel swirl and coffee toffee.

I  didn't take a picture of Lauren's order.  She already started eating and was outside doing this...

Happy eaters

This hand-drawn sign was on the napkin dispenser.  In support of the Napkin Conservation Project started in 1990.

I also noticed this hand-drawn sign above the trash bin.

Today's tasty discovery.  Thanks Bi-Rite Creamery!
