A mile north of San Francisco and across the Golden Gate Bridge is the beautiful seaside town of Sausalito. Even though Sausalito is outside the city limits of San Francisco, it is a quintessential part of the San Francisco experience.

This charming village has become a favorite lunch spot for many San Francisco tours, including our Dylan’s Famous Tour with Muir Woods and Bike the Bridge & Shuttle to Muir Woods Tour.

There are a few things to do in Sausalito, including walking in and out of cute boutiques, admiring the beauty of the Sausalito waterfront, and indulging at some of the best dessert places in the Bay Area, specifically the ice cream shops. Sausalito ice cream is absolutely delicious.

Whether you’re on a Sausalito day trip or just stopping for lunch on one of our tours, here is where you will find the best ice cream in Sausalito.

Lappert’s Ice Cream

Lappert’s Ice Cream has some of the best ice cream in the Bay Area. They offer unique flavors from around the world, like Nuku Hiva, a blend of coconut pineapple ice cream, brownie pieces, and raspberry sorbet.

Lappert’s ice cream is the smoothest, richest tasting ice cream money can buy. Be sure to stop by their shop and indulge in this fantastic Sausalito ice cream.
