"My absolute favorite ice cream of all time! Swensens is a MUST! Their seasonal flavors are not to be missed. No one beats their pumpkin! Their cones are freshly made as is their ice cream! Cash only, so keep that in mind. Take the cable car over and hop off, or climb that hill if you're not already on top. It's such a special treat!"

"Swensen’s is an original S.F. hang out. Cold nights in the city with cold ice cream on the corner of Union and Hyde. Staple in the fabric of the North side of town. Seasonal flavors like Spumoni come and go for the holidays while others like Peppermint remain a year round option."

"This is the spot! Hands down one of the Best Ice Creams in SF! This is the original spot, opening in 1948. If you are in the area or love ice cream. Take a quick trip over. This is a popular place. And normally one person at a time. But it's well worth it! Especially if you love ice cream or milkshakes. The waffle cones are the Best! I grabbed the cookies and cream with peanut butter milkshake ! So yummy."

"Historical. They still make the icecream in store. And it's the only one in San Francisco. Very premium quality icecream."

"Greatest ice cream in the Bay Area. Unfortunately, one of the last Swensen's around, as franchising in US was a disaster. Sticky Chewy Chcolate is still a popular choice but I think their Swiss Orange Chip is the best ice cream you can get anywhere! Ice cream is still made in this store, which changed in other stores when Swensen's franchised."
