A rotating exhibit of the things I love most about living in San Francisco.

I’d been meaning to check this place out for a while now and Stephen G’s review on Yelp was the tipping point. I made a quick run after work yesterday and Mr and Mrs M. did not disappoint; I loved this place! And I’m going to go back tomorrow, too, so that’s twice in one weekend. If that’s not an endorsement, I don’t know what is. My intention was to get the Ballbark but couldn’t resist trying another flavor, all of them looked so good.

I sampled the Candied Violet and ultimately went with it. And, in my judgement, it just might be one of the best ice creams I’ve ever had.

The combination of the floral (real pieces of bright purple candied violet petals) with the notes of limoncello and lemon zest, made magic. What I really appreciate about this place is that the flavors are enticingly inventive without being a ‘dare’, if you know what I mean…

Then, there was that cookie. Before paying for my ice cream I spied a stack of chocolate chip like you wouldn’t believe.

I picked mine up, still WARM, and it actually started to bend in my hand. I’m not a crispy cookie kind of guy, I’m a “THIS-KIND” of chocolate cookie kind of guy. There was some nice browning on the outside, just crispy enough to contain a contrastingly melty, buttery and gooey center. Lots of chips. Awesome cookie. Maybe the best.

So, I’m having friends over for dinner tomorrow and what’s for dessert? I don’t know yet, but I do know I’m going back to Mr and Mrs Miscellaneous to get it!
