Garden Creamery is a small ice cream shop a few blocks away from Dolores Park with interesting flavors worth going out of your way for. We like the kaya coconut jam and the Turkish coffee, but our favorite is the arroz con leche with Dandelion cocoa nibs mixed in that basically tastes like eating rice pudding in ice cream form.
