Summertime in San Francisco's Mission District means perfect weather, the envy of the rest of the city—blue skies, sunshine, a mid-afternoon breeze and that famous blanket of refreshing fog before sunset. Everyone wants to be outside at a sidewalk café or picnicking in Dolores Park. Whether it's foggy or sunny, no afternoon in August would be complete without a cup or cone of gourmet ice cream.
