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.

In June 2019, after a seismic retrofit and renovation, Bi-Rite Creamery reopened with a new design that opens up the interior to the hustle and bustle of 18th Street. The team also introduced delicious new products including three new vegan flavors, Soft Serve Stuffed Donuts, and park-friendly ice cream bars!

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.

Exclusively at Bi-Rite Creamery on 18th Street you can now enjoy that soft serve stuffed in a Mr. Holmes Bakehouse brioche donut served with a delicious dipping sauce!

And exclusively at Bi-Rite Cafe at Civic Center Plaza, soft serve is amazing in a sundae or as an affogato!
