CASTRO — Coming late fall or early winter is The Ice Cream Bar’s second location, which will officially be called The Castro Fountain. Located at 554 Castro Street, the ice cream shop will start off serving only the soft stuff, with the hopes of expanding to baked goods as well. As we reported back in April, owner Juliet Pries plans to also serve soda fountain drinks, but unclear if that will include the hard stuff. [EaterWire]
