No. 4 San Francisco

5 of 22

While the Bay Area struck readers as being fairly expensive, gourmet ice cream makes for a simple luxury. At Bi-Rite Creamery and Bakeshop in the Mission District, one side of the shop makes the brownies, cookies, and marshmallows that go into ice cream like the ricanelas (cinnamon with snickerdoodles). Nearby, Humphry Slocombe on Harrison Street touts foodie-forward flavors such as chocolate smoked sea salt, jalapeño, and a Jesus Juice sorbet.
