[The SF List] Chicory Coffee at Mr & Mrs Miscellaneous Ice Cream

MrMrsMiscellaneous-

Ice cream and baseball are two entities to which Boston’s varieties I’ll always be partial. After witnessing Bi Rite Creamery‘s long lines (a local ice cream shop in the Mission), I was excited by the potential of finding the equivalent of my childhood ice cream obsession here in this new land. Alas, by my first Salty Caramel bite at this foreign place, I immediately realized the impossibility of recreating the act of a child and her ice cream cone falling in love for the first time. Now that I’m not chasing after J.P. Licks — the ice cream I grew up on and therefore, obviously, the best ice cream in the world — I’ve been able to accept some of San Francisco’s ice cream for what it is. And it’s growing on me, fast. MrMrsMiscellaneous- Mr and Mrs Miscellaneous is the best I’ve found so far. Talk about homemade ice cream. The flavors are completely different one day to the next, so you never know what you’ll get until you walk in the door. Add a sunny day to about only 8 varieties on hand and the popular ones begin running out by the end of it. From the hardworking people behind the counter to the sparse decor inside, you feel as though you’ve stumbled upon a secret ice cream making warehouse. The chalkboard walls and long wooden tables aren’t exactly homey, but they certainly convey the raw efforts of the ice cream masterminds. Mr and Mrs Miscellaneous is the best I’ve found so far.

MrMrsMiscellaneous-7915 Toss your preconceived notions of ice cream flavors out the (floor-to-ceiling, industrial) window. You won’t find chocolate or vanilla here. Frozen hot chocolate? Yes. Lavender, lemon, or pink guava? You can count on those. As for the substance itself, it’s creamy, sugary and pretty darn tasty. Add a homemade waffle cone or hot chocolate sauce for only $1 and it gets even better. Yes, this’ll do just fine. Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous on Urbanspoon 699 22nd St. Dogpatch San Francisco, CA 94107
