About Us

At Smitten Ice Cream, we are makers through and through – from our flavors right down to our ice cream machines, we make it all. Because we believe that ice cream can and should be better. Hell no status quo.

We’re reinventing the ice cream experience by churning each scoop to-order, from scratch, using the freshest, purest ingredients and patented liquid nitrogen-enabled technology. From our founder’s early days on the streets of San Francisco (literally) to our family of scoop shops across the Bay Area, we’ve been challenging the status quo from Day 1. And we’re just getting started.
