Making Small Batch Ice Cream and Baked Goods by Hand, with Love
Oh the wonder of ice cream! And salted caramel sauce…and cookies…and brownies…and pies. Bi-Rite Creamery was started by two bakers who wanted to bring San Francisco perfectly balanced, delectably delicious treats in a responsible, sustainable way. Their goal was to make you happy.
So then and now, they develop intensely flavored ice cream recipes that feature locally-sourced ingredients, often highlighting the season’s tastiest fruits like Masumoto Peaches, and handmade inclusions such as the snickerdoodles for Ricanelas and the chocolate cookies in the Cookies and Cream.
And the bakeshop stays busy, mixing up cupcakes, cookies, galettes, sweetbreads, and granola year-round. Even panna cottas and pot de cremes. The changing menu reflects the season’s bounty as well as holiday traditions. So stop on in (or order a pint on Instacart), and let us share some happiness with you.
Ice Cream That You Crave
The secret to our incredibly delicious, rich, creamy soft serve is that it’s made with Double 8 Dairy buffalo milk. The higher butter fat content makes the ice cream an incredible base for our flavors. Available at the original 18th Street Creamery and the new Bi-Rite Cafe at Civic Center Plaza, soft serve is great in a cone or a cup, and even better in a sundae!
Ice Cream with
Straus Family Creamery
Since the beginning, we’ve used Straus Family Creamery’s organic milk, cream and eggs in our ice cream. Located only 45 miles away, Straus was the first certified organic dairy west of the Mississippi. They’re on a mission is to help sustain family farms in Marin and Sonoma Counties by providing high-quality, minimally processed organic dairy products.
Soft Serve with
Double 8 Dairy
One of only two water buffalo dairies in California, Double 8, located in Petaluma, is committed to sustainable, innovative dairy farming practices. With a herd that hovers around 50 milking buffalo, they produce about 40 to 45 gallons of milk a day.
