We make all our own ice cream, hot fudge, chocolate syrup, caramel and butterscotch, the old fashioned way, right here on the premises. We bake all of our own pies and brownies and we use only the finest Guittard chocolates and cocoa in all of our toppings and ice creams. We hope you will be pleased. The San Francisco Creamery Company has its origins from the 1930's and 1940's when most ice cream fountains were found in neighborhood dimes stores and pharmacies. Even before the popularity of post war 50's diners, a certain J.B. Cooper converted an old Barbary saloon into a soda fountain and malt shop located at what is now the Fillmore district of San Francisco. Keeping the look of Victorian style decor, rich in wood finishes and accents, he went to work making homemade ice cream, chocolates, and other confections. He called his popular little store "Cooper's Corner Confections and Fountain Shoppe." Inspired by Mr. Cooper and countless other ice cream fountains of that era, we are proud to continue the tradition of that San Francisco way of ice cream making and purveying. We make all our own ice cream, hot fudge, chocolate syrup, caramel and butterscotch, the old fashioned way, right here on the premises. We bake all of our own pies and brownies and we use only the finest Guittard chocolates and cocoa in all of our toppings and ice creams. We hope you will be pleased. As seen on Man Vs. Food!
