We stopped at Norman's after a long walk through the city and it was exactly what we needed. The ice cream was delicious and everyone had something they enjoyed. Great place!

A very good place in an otherwise very touristy spot (where you would think you have a risk of being ripped off). But the icecream are just excellent at a reasonable price and the staff if very friendly.

Norman's Ice Cream serves Mtichell's Ice Cream, which is known as the best here in SF. It did not disappoint. We enjoyed all of our flavors(mint chips, espresso chips, and even Philippine Ube!) were all rich, creamy, and delicious.

Our double-decker bus driver recommended this place and it did not disappoint. Very small shop hidden away. Ice cream delicious and proprietor very personable.
