Friends Jake Godby and Sean Vahey gave a nod to the leading characters in their favorite British sitcom, Are You Being Served?, when they opted for the rather unusual name Humphrey Slocombe. However, the oddball name matches the oddball menu at this cart. Flavors like bacon, ancho chile, and corn may give you pause. However, these sweet treats have been wowing residents across San Francisco, CA since 2008. That staying power is a testament to the quality of this ice cream.
So, what’ll it be? If you want a little savory thrown in with your sweet, grab a scoop of cheese or jalapeño. Fancy something truly saccharine? There’s malted milk chocolate, Mexican hot cocoa, and brown butter to sample. Love a little salt? Nab some peanut. Fan of robust flavors? Then make it a bowl of candied ginger. As you probably noticed, Humphrey Slocombe is one of the few establishments that actually lives up to the overused adage ‘“something for everyone.” So, swing by and find your bliss. Or, do ‘em one better and book ‘em for your next event. It will be a truly unforgettable dessert table.
