The Ice Cream Bar Soda Fountain
This ice cream parlor sports three different bars, black marble tables, and enough Ayn Randian decoration to fit into any level of Bioshock: art-deco tiles, porthole mirrors, glowing blue diamond lights, and presumably soon, terrifyingly dead-eyed children.
Grab a stool and settle in for a malt, milkshake, sundae, or float at this ‘30s-inspired soda fountain where everything is made in-house. If the Roasted Pineapple is on the menu, that is your only choice. It comes and goes faster than summer sunshine in SF, so you’ve gotta snag it when you can. Otherwise, go wild. (Even wilder, perhaps, if you order from the adults-only boozy drinks menu, which includes boozy milkshakes and floats,)
How to order: Walk-ins welcome. You can also order ahead (from a limited menu) for pickup online. There’s also a sister location, The Castro Fountain, in the Castro.
