Smitten Ice Cream uses their own patented technology to freeze each batch of ice cream to-order using liquid nitrogen, and their Hayes Valley location is just 5 mins walk from the War Memorial Opera House where we perform Nutcracker. They’re open until 10pm (10.30pm Friday and Saturday,) so you can treat yourself before or after seeing a performance!
