I grew up on your standard market ice cream sandwich, so I was thrilled to find a grown-up version (Not really, I just like calling it that.). The chocolate shortbread-like wafers melt in your mouth - almost as fast as the rich ice cream inside. A bit delicate but absolutely delicious.
Ici has lots of other interesting goodies like Blue Bottle espresso ice cream - very smooth espresso flavor with no bitter aftertaste. We use their beans at home, and it's the only espresso drink that I do not use sugar.
Mary Canales, formerly of Chez Panisse, runs this lovely little place - definitely stop by if you're in the neighborhood.
