Buzz for San Francisco’s best ice cream shops draws ever more tourists (and locals!) to impromptu ice cream crawls. Mission favorites Bi-Rite and Humphry Slocombe are an easy one-two punch, but in a recent discussion on Chowhound, users like TXGSD wondered which food destinations make worthwhile breaks between ice cream stops.

There’s general agreement on the direction of local ice cream strolls: Start at Humphry and head west to Bi-Rite, which lands you in Dolores Park for your final cone. As for the pit stops, jsaimd suggests fresh, warm nopales tortillas from La Palma or nouveau Jewish deli noshes from Wise Sons. OliverB prefers to stick with sweets, advocating for a German chocolate cookie from Anthony’s Cookies on Valencia to keep the sugar riot raging.
