The Scoop: There's Life Beyond the Lines at Humphry Slocombe and Bi-Rite
The new gelato bars by Gelateria Naia ($2) keep it local by using ingredients such as Blue Bottle coffee and St. George’s single malt. They come in fruit flavors like kiwi too. At Whole Foods, 450 Rhode Island St. (at 17th), 415-552-1155.
From Italian siblings Cedric and Alexandra Di Donato comes Bacetti ($7.49 for six pieces), two-bite, chocolate-covered covered “little kisses.” We like the Il Classico filled with vanilla gelato and pine nuts. At Falletti Foods, 308 Broderick St. (at Oak), 415-626-4400.
Out of its soft-serve truck, Twirl and Dip serves a creamsicle ($4) that looks like a frozen lollipop—strawberry popsicle on one side and Straus vanilla ice cream on the other. At Golden Gate Park or Marina Green. For the schedule, follow @Twirlanddip.
Churning their first batch of chewy gelato in San Rafael in 1982, Fiorello’s has it down with Tony Spumoni—a killer almond-pistachio-chocolate combo ($8 per pint). At Whole Foods, 690 Stanyan St. (at Haight), 415-876-6740.
