“San Francisco’s Humphry Slocombe blazes a trail with unique flavors, and customers can’t get enough of Secret Breakfast.”

“Top 5 Ice Cream in America”

Bon Appètit

“It’s clear within moments of meeting Humphry Slocombe’s Jake Godby and Sean Vahey that they were destined to go into business together.”

“Ice Cream for Adults by Adults”

New York Times Magazine

“Godby’s intention when he opened Humphry Slocombe in 2008 was to create a challenging ice cream store. He has succeeded. It is straight-up soda-fountain retro: black-and-white tile floor, chrome-and-red-leather stools, simple Formica bar.”

“I’ll Take a Scoop of Prosciutto, Please”

Eater LA

“It’s grown-up dessert time at Humphry Slocombe, with a sweet and sticky combination of bourbon ice cream, Classic Coke, bourbon caramel, and the shop’s best-seller, secret breakfast ice cream.”

7×7 Magazine

“Hero to those who prefer their humor deadpan, their tweets dirty, and their breakfast boozy, Jake Godby is the culinary half of the duo behind San Francisco’s idiosyncratic—and, five years in—now iconic Humphry Slocombe ice cream shop.”

“15 Minutes with Humprhy Slocombe’s Jake Godby”

The Culture Trip

“At Humphry Slocombe, you won’t find neon-pink bubblegum or cerulean cotton candy ice cream. Instead, you’ll encounter the esoteric, the eccentric and the exotic: smooth foie gras, sweet summer corn and salty prosciutto.”

“The Ice Cream at Humphry Slocombe Is Unabashedly Quirky”


“Choosing “the best” is almost impossible, but Humphry Slocombe is the ultimate mix of gourmet, experimental, wacky (think the Jesus Juice red-wine-and-cola flavor) and downright delicious.”

“10 Dishes You Must Eat to Call Yourself a San Franciscan”

Time Out

“Humphry Slocombe caters to a decidedly grown-up crowd of ice cream aficionados, with intriguing sweet-savory flavor combos that occasionally sound dubious… but always taste delicious.”

“The 20 Best Ice Cream Sundaes in America”

Oprah – July Issue

“San Francisco ice creamery Humphry Slocombe is known for bold flavors like cayenne cantaloupe, but even its strawberry ice cream has some genius touches.”
