St. Francis Fountain

This recently renovated ice cream fountain, deep in the heart of the Mission District, makes delicious old-fashioned floats, malts and shakes, teaching a history lesson in treats. This is San Francisco’s oldest ice cream parlor and as such is very old-fashioned. For example, they won’t serve soy-based ice cream, which, in San Francisco, makes them seem practically reactionary. They have high quality versions of old dinner fare as well. We’ll warn you, this place gets very crowded during weekend brunch hours, so come during the week.
