When I visit San Francisco, one of my “must stops” is Humphrey Slocombe, an ice cream shop servings all sorts of unique and crazy flavor combinations.
They offer 10-12 flavors daily and rotate amongst their many flavors. You can view the complete list of flavors here.
Sometimes there is a line out the door but it usually moves pretty fast. The staff is patient and friendly and doesn’t mind that you may take several minutes to taste test and mull over your options at the counter.
I love coming to try new flavors, though my favorite is also their best-seller: Secret breakfast. Bourbon laced ice cream mixed with crunchy cornflakes. When I first heard the description, I wasn’t convinced. This sure wasn’t a combination I’ve ever eaten for breakfast. But it works. And it’s addicting. If I lived close by, I would by a gallon of this stuff and it daily.
I love banana bread, but when I develop a craving for it, it takes a while to satisfy. I have to mash some bananas, bake for an hour, let it cool, etc. But not anymore.
Banana cake is possible in just a few minutes.
Snooze remains one of our favorite brunch spots, mainly because of the pancake flight and the eggs benedict. Since my post on the grand opening, this place has become ridiculously popular, with the wait somewhere between 30 minutes to an hour on weekends.
I don’t usually like to wait, but we have friends visiting who were on their “babymoon” and both FH and I really wanted to take them to Snooze. By the time we sat down, we were starving. We decided to order several things from the menu and share.
Eggs Bennies. Snooze lets you mix and match, so we chose the Bella! Bella! Benny (Thin slices of prosciutto, Taleggio cheese, and poached eggs on toasted ciabatta, topped with cream cheese hollandaise, balsamic glaze and arugula) and Chilaquiles Benedict (Carne asada steak served on a cheesy, saucy, tortilla stack topped with poached Niman Ranch eggs, smoked cheddar hollandaise, fresh salsa and cotija cheese.)
The Bella! Bella! was pretty to look at but I wasn’t as fond of the taste or that it sat on the ciabatta bread. I liked the Chilaquiles better. I also really liked the potato hash which was very crispy. Basically as crispy as you can get without deep frying it. Looking back at old pictures, it looks like the hash recipe has changed. I don’t remember if I liked it before, but I like this new version.
