• Quick Bites: MaggieMudd in San Francisco

    February 28th, 2011quarrygirlbay area, more restaurants (not LA), san francisco

    hey everyone! today’s quick bite comes to us from fred (aka @cycled) who visited maggiemudd, a very vegan-friendly ice cream parlor in san francisco, over presidents day weekend. man, i really wanna go here someday. check it out.

    We arrived here on a Sunday afternoon looking to indulge in some tasty treats after withstanding the deluge on Saturday. After staring at the menu board denoting a multitude of variations available to make your ultimate frozen treat, I couldn’t help but feel indecisive.

    Mudslide and Birthday Cake, covered with soy whip, sliced almonds, and cookie crumbs. $7

    I ended up choosing the Mudslide along with the Birthday Cake in honor of George Washington’s 279th birth anniversary. The ice cream, needless to say, was delicious and tasted just as good as it looked. The real star for me here was the thick soy whip that I remembered loving from Worldfest.

    Mudslide and Oatmeal Cookie Dough, covered with soy whip, sliced almonds, and fudge in a convenient grab-and-go cup. $7

    My partner in crime also ordered the Mudslide, but added the Oatmeal Cookie Dough as she is enchanted with the texture of cookie dough. She thought it was amazing as well and we can’t wait to return on our next field trip to San Francisco, but we hope they will be serving at Worldfest again this year.

    They have a very small staff, but they were very friendly, accommodating, and even apologetic for a short wait. Lastly, no visit here is complete without a picture with the human-sized waffle cone.

  • Forget the inedible human sized waffle cone, I have my sights set on the gigantic waffle cone in the first pic!

  • I went there the night before and they were nearly out of everything. Only like 3 vegan flavors and they said they couldn’t make shakes. Hugely disappointing after driving nearly seven hours. First time the bummer trumpet played at MMs. They need to open one in LA, pronto.

  • I love Maggie Mudd! I’ve been getting my daughter’s ice cream cakes from there for years.

  • It’s so awesome. I got an epic sundae with everything on it.

    Looks marvelous!!! If I go up north for any reason, this will the the first place I’m going to stop in for something to eat. And I agree that a Los Angeles location would be terrific. I love love love vegan ice-cream sundaes. I feel I can walk over broken glass to get one of these.

  • I’ve been meaning to try this place, but for some reason I thought they were closing or closed already…I wonder if they have gluten-free options

  • Got totally hooked up via their emails…told about one of those coupons…bought one for like 5bucks and it was buy one get one free sundaes. They ship their cakes and is well worth a visit even though it is out of the way. Their staff are great and so helpful. They also sell pints at most whole foods. Maggie Mudd is very awesome!

  • This place is awesome but you have to get there before 2 or 3 in the afternoon if you want to have your pick of flavors — they get cleaned out every damn day, something you’d think they’d start planning for. One time I got there at like 6 and they had one damn vegan flavor left, some sort of pomegranate monstrosity designed to scare off latecomers. (I guzzled it anyway. I failed.) The good flavors are killer, though, and there’s a park with a great view of SF up the hill behind them, perfect place to walk off your ice cream and vibe on your sugar high.

    To compare it to other famous vegan ice creameries, it’s much better than KindKreme or Scoops but not as good as Lula Sweet or that mystery cookie dough they used to serve in the El Segundo Whole Foods.

  • They are CLOSED. Gone, good bye : (
    No more vegan ice cream . . .

  • Just drove there only to see a for rent sign in the window. Saddest day of any of my SF visits ever.
