SFHC is the only creamery in San Francisco to make small batch ice cream completely from scratch on-site.
We are the closest "From farm to cone" as it gets. WE TAKE NO SHORT-CUTS. As licensed pasteurizers, we are unshackled from working with a pre-made ice cream base and have absolute control over richness, texture, consistency and flavor. WE PRIDE OURSELVES ON BEING INVOLVED ALONG EVERY STEP OF THE WAY AS WE TAKE INDIVIDUAL AND PRINCIPALLY LOCAL, RAW INGREDIENTS AND TURN THEM INTO DELICIOUS AND UNIQUE ICE CREAMS.
WE hand CRACK AND SEPARATE 2,000+ EGGS PER WEEK TO USE IN OUR ICE CREAM AND WE UTILIZE EVERY PART: YOLKS FOR THE ICE CREAM; WHITES FOR OUR CINNAMON INFUSED HOME MADE WAFFLE CONES.
WE MAKE ALL OF OUR OWN MIX-INS, FROM OUR, MARSHMALLOWS and FUDGE SAUCES, to SPECULOOS and BAKLAVA, BECAUSE LET'S FACE IT - WHEN IT'S FRESH, SIMPLE, AND HOMEMADE, IT JUST TASTES BETTER!

We consider everyone on our team to be family. As representatives of our business, we have our staff know that friendly, welcoming service is cornerstone to the environment we wish to provide. We continuously work with our team members so that they are knowledgable about not only our ingredients, process, and business practices but about the industry in general. As owners of a business, we find it imperative to pay above minimum wage and require the best and most welcoming customer service the city has to offer.
We are committed to providing you the closest "from farm to cone" experience as possible, which is why our ingredients are simple. Milk, Cream, Eggs, Sugar and whatever the natural flavor is (we do NOT use artificial flavoring, artificial coloring, or stabilize with any chemical preservatives). We source from local farms and use produce that is in season to provide the best and freshest flavoring possible.
Everything disposable we provide is compostable: spoons, bowls, cups, straws, napkins etc. As business owners we feel an obligation to have a practice that is environmentally conscious, and do everything in our power to minimize our footprint on the earth we treasure.
Additionally, as members of the community, we believe it is essential to be involved and do our part whenever possible to support good causes in any way we can. Be it for education, non-profits, volunteer organizations or community development projects, we want to be there with you.

Hometown Creamery Goes to Great Lengths for Its Ice Cream
"There is no question that the Castro has too many cafes, or that Russian Hill has too much beige, but San Francisco can probably never have too much ice cream. With a couple of exceptions, artisanal dairy desserts have clung to the precincts east of Twin Peaks, but the Inner Sunset’s ever-denser foodie corridor now has its own: the fraternally run Hometown Creamery, on Ninth Avenue at Irving...

Where to find the BEST Ice Cream in The Bay
SF Hometown Creamery
This brand new spot just opened its Inner Sunset doors in this month. It is run by two brothers with a passion for ice cream and the neighborhood (one of the brothers was determined to end up on this exact block since they hatched the idea, 5 years ago). In addition to creative, house-made flavor combinations, such as candied orange peel, pistachio and almond, Hometown Creamery makes their ice creams completely from scratch (most purchase a premade vanilla base) so they had to get a pasteurizer’s license and build a specific sanitized room for the process. We suggest stopping in for a taste of their hard work!... Read More
