Happy Holidays! I’m excited to share our extraordinary holiday offerings that are sure to wow your family and friends. Take a peek at our December Holiday Guide; we’re featuring 5 Dot Ranch‘s amazing California-raised Prime Rib, and all the goodies to go with it–our house-made menus, great wine and liquors, locally-grown produce, truffles from France and Italy, and unforgettable treats, all personally selected by our Grocery Buyer, my brother Raph. Our talented bakers at Bi-Rite Creamery are busy hand-making pies, festive cookies, and my all-time favorite Bûche de Noël, for an unforgettable sweet ending to any celebration.

Throuh our partnership with Instacart, you can now pre-order your holiday meals for pickup at either Bi-Rite Market location from our special online Holiday Market. Simply choose Bi-Rite at 3639 18th Street or 550 Divisadero Street as your pick-up location, and you’re all set.

Beautiful, Festive, Scrumptious holiday offerings from Bi-Rite Creamery

The ice cream from Bi-Rite Creamery is regularly cited as being among the best in San Francisco–an honor that we value tremendously. All of our ice cream is handmade in small batches with organic dairy from Straus Family Creamery, and we’re always working to come up with unique, fun, interesting flavors – some of them available year round, some just as seasonal specialties.

Toffee Bark and Peppermint Bark

In the latter camp are two ice cream flavors that are favorites among both our guests and our staff: Eggnog and Candy Cane. Our Eggnog Ice Cream is super rich and creamy with a strong kick of brandy and nutmeg (this flavor contains alcohol). Our Candy Cane Ice Cream, eagerly anticipated all year, has a vanilla and peppermint base with chunks of minty candy cane. The richness of the vanilla offsets the sweet accent of the candy cane flavor for a balanced treat with just the right amount of sweetness. It also pairs beautifully with our Mint Chip ice cream.

All our confections and baked goods are hand-made fresh at the Creamery, perfect for enjoying yourself or as gift options. Our Peppermint Bark is made with dark chocolate from our local friends at San Francisco-based TCHO Chocolate and topped with a layer of crunchy peppermint pieces, while its cousin Toffee Bark, made with TCHO’s milk chocolate, is topped with chunks of house-made almond toffee.

Bûche de Noël

Perhaps the most treasured treat from the Creamery this season is our Bûche de Noël. Kris and Anne, owners of Bi-Rite Creamery, spent weeks perfecting this gorgeous traditional Christmas cake. It features chocolate roulade with milk chocolate butter cream and chocolate glaze, and is decorated with adorable meringue mushrooms, pistachios and sparkling candied rosemary. This cake really is almost too beautiful to eat. Almost. It also makes a lovely New Year’s Eve dessert, paired with a special bottle of champagne or sparkling wine! Pre-order it and our other holiday desserts, along with your complete holiday meal, here.
