Spotted SF / Cole Valley / The Ice Cream Bar


This spot is like a blast from the past. You’ll truly feel as if you’ve walked into a classic ’30s diner with its lunch counter, soda fountain and “jerks” serving up ice cream, malts, milkshakes, floats, and the best part: handcrafted sodas which are made-to-order the old fashioned way using a blend of extracts, acids and soda water. I just finished lunch closeby and only had a room for a scoop of ice cream (the mint chip was perfect) but I’m surely stopping in again to order up a soda and try out the rest of the menu.
