Foodie Friday: Smitten Ice Cream

Smitten I totally was when introduced to this adorable ice cream parlor in San Francisco during my visit two weeks ago. Each cup or cone is made to order (in a whopping 60 seconds!) using liquid nitrogen -- how cool! Pun fully intended.

I opted for the classic vanilla with a meyer lemon caramel sauce and Brittney got the brown butter pecan, so creamy and delicious!


Here's a little video of Smitten ice cream in the making!

Location: 432 Octavia Street San Francisco, California 94102
Neighborhood: Hayes Valley


  1. We have a place like that here now too. Its called Nitro Freeze or something?? By the movies off 33rd. Its awesome to watch them make your ice cream.

    1. OH MY GOSH, I got so excited for a second. I thought you were talking about here in San Diego and I was like how do I not know about this place?!?!?! (as I sometimes work on 32nd! Hahahahaha)

  2. I was just about to say exactly what Erica did. It's good, you can get yogurt - custard - ice cream - or non-dairy ice cream, however all their flavors are in the for of syrups with artificial flavorings and some of their mix ins are of the shelf-stable for decades variety. Fun to check out every once in a while though!

  3. Oh my gosh! How awesome is that (just watched the video). I would love to try this place out if I ever get to San Fran :]

  4. omg this is the coolest. i want to fly out there now. :/
