All ice cream is great, but sometimes what you really want is soft serve, and Gott’s Soft Serve in the Ferry Building is the height of the artform. You could stick with a classic chocolate-vanilla swirl and be happy, or try one of their other flavors like fior de latte or salted caramel. Whatever you get, you’re going to be in the mood for soft serve a lot more afterwards.
