San Francisco's Hometown Creamery is an ice cream company located in San Francisco, California, offering a unique vintage ice-cream bus for weddings and special events.

It’s always a great honor for us to participate in one of the most important and exciting events of a couple’s lifetime. Nowhere else will you find a more complete dessert experience that pleases all the senses than with the San Francisco’s Hometown Creamery VW bus. It gives us great pleasure to provide you with a truly unique and unforgettable feature for your wedding.

We offer a few options to accomodate various budgets:

Our most desired option is our fully restored, cherry red, vintage VW bus. It gets your feet moving with soul, funk, Motown and R&B, and slings the highest quality craft ice cream with robust flavor.

We have a smaller pushcart, as well as the option of individually portioned cups and/or a self serve sundae bar.

San Francisco’s Hometown Creamery was the first ice cream shop in San Francisco to make everything from scratch on-site. As licensed pasteurizers, we have complete control over the consistency, flavor and texture of our premium ice cream along every step of the way. We benefit from living in an agriculturally rich and diverse region where we can use local and fresh ingredients year-round.

Because we are small batch ice cream makers, we can make completely customized flavors for your wedding, or you can choose from our staple or seasonal flavors. Many of our rotating flavors at our shop are internationally inspired, so no matter what type of wedding you are having, we can match an appropriate flavor to cultures and traditions from around the world. Executive chef and co-owner Saadi Halil is well versed with international culinary traditions and speaks 6 languages allowing for authentic engagement with a wide variety of people.

While there is an element of levity to ice cream, our servers operate with an extremely high level of professionalism while being simultaneously engaging, accommodating and fun. We provide fast, efficient, clean and reliable service.

    Perfect for our wedding!

    We cannot recommend Hometown Creamery enough! We had Hometown’s red VW bus at our wedding and it was the perfect, most fun and interactive dessert treat we could have hoped for! Adar and Saadi are kind, had great communication and were a pleasure to work with! The VW bus had so much character and added such a unique element to our wedding. The ice cream was absolutely delicious and the perfect combination of interesting flavors and classic favorites. They were able to include toppings as well as cups and cones so our guests could customize what they wanted. We are so grateful to have worked with such a wonderful family company and to have had them as part of our most special day! Thank you for making our wedding ice cream dreams come true!
