New Ice Cream Shop for the Castro Gayborhood

LOccitaneSan Francisco’s Castro Merchants business group voted this morning (Thursday, August 6) to approve a proposed ice cream shop in the neighborhood.

Juliet Pries, a 15-year-Castro resident, said she hopes to open the Cafe Fountain at 554 Castro Street by early 2016.

Pries, who’s straight and currently owns Ice Cream Bar, at 815 Cole Street in Cole Valley, told the merchants that it would be a 30s-style soda fountain. The Castro space had been occupied by L’Occitane, a skincare store. Pries acknowledged her ice cream isn’t cheap – a single scoop is $3.50 – but she said it’s organic and made by the shop.
