Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous
Owners: Annabelle Topacio and Ian Flores are professionally trained pastry chefs who’ve worked at many fine restaurants, including Wolfgang Puck’s Spago and CUT in Southern California and Postrio in San Francisco. In addition to crafting their own ice cream here, they bake a selection of sweets to sell alongside, and inside, their scoops.
History: Topacio and Flores moved to Dogpatch in 2008; two years later, they opened Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous in a former sandwich shop in the American Industrial Building.
Favorites: The menu rotates daily, so catching something twice can be a challenge. Still, whatever is on the blackboard list each day is worth trying. Fans like the Chicory Coffee scoop, Pink Squirrel (almond cookie and cherry ice cream) and Ballpark. Beyond ice cream, the peanut-butter malt balls are a hit—a small taste of Mr. and Mrs.’ Confectionary skills.
Extra Scoop: The store is family-run, with family hours: They’re not open Mondays, evenings or once they run out of ice cream.
