  • Try the Swiss-orange-chip ice cream
  • Sticky chewy chocolate is da bomb!!
  • Try the Fresh Banana and Swiss Orange Chip flavors
  • Ice cream here is delicious but also very creamy...you'll be full after one scoop so no need for two!
  • The Swiss-orange chip has been a favorite, forever!
  • toasted almond is solid.
  • Toasted almond is delish.
  • Caramel turtle fudge, mango, swiss orange are awesome!
  • Chewy sticky chocolate!!!
  • Can you believe that Swensen's is SO big in Asia? So many Asians come to take picture with the original store and get disappointed. ><
  • Sticky peanut butter and fresh banana make a good combination.
  • Swiss Orange Chip
  • Swiss Orange Chip Ice Cream
  • The sticky, chewy chocolate ($2.95 for a small) at this neighborhood classic (open since 1948); it's a tongue-coating, stretchy scoop of pure chocolate heaven.
  • One scoop is never enough
  • Ice Cream & Cable Car Outing! Savor a sundae at Swensens Grill & Ice Cream in Russian Hill (try the Hot Fudge Bonanza!), then take a cable car down to Ghirardelli Square for a stroll by the water.
  • Waffle cones are good for sharing!
  • The chewy chocolate with the rocky road added is worth a try as I really liked it.
