Status: Grand opening tomorrow
Just in time to usher in the month of August, tomorrow is the official grand opening of CREAM, the San Francisco expansion of the mega-hit Berkeley ice-cream sandwich shop. Housed in the former Ti Couz Too space at 16th and Valencia, the spot joins recent 16th Street additions Chino and ABV for an infusion of new energy on the block. And if the original is any indication, you can expect an infusion of new lines as well.
The menu features 20 ice cream flavors like banana fudge walnut, butter pecan, strawberry cheesecake and matcha green tea, plus some dairy-free options like soy mint chip. Choose from a selection of 10 warm cookie varieties to pair with your ice cream choice, like white chocolate macadamia nut, snickerdoodle, double chocolate chip, and gluten-free and vegan options. Floats, milkshakes, and malts will also be on offer. (Here's the menu.)
The new shop, which has a long and narrow layout, features a blue-and-white color scheme and menus displayed on wall-mounted monitors. Hours will follow a late-night format that's sure to appeal to Mission bar-hoppers: CREAM will be open Sunday-Thursday from noon to midnight, and Friday and Saturday from 12pm-2am.
It should also be noted to that to celebrate their grand opening tomorrow, CREAM will be serving free ice cream sandwiches from noon-8pm, so stop by within that timeframe to welcome them to the neighborhood.
