For each day of Classics Week, Eater SF's head photographer, Patricia Chang, visited a different iconic San Francisco restaurant or bar for an Eater Scenes photo essay, capturing it at a defining moment in the week. To wrap up the week, she headed over to Mitchell's Ice Cream, the iconic Bernal Heights creamery that's been dishing up dozens of flavors since 1953. From grasshopper pie to Mexican chocolate to ube (purple yam), Mitchell's offers a creamy taste of the San Francisco melting pot for anyone who feels like grabbing a ticket and a cone, which probably explains why there's always a line. Take a peek into the weeknight rush at Mitchell's.
