The Sweetest IGs are Created at TPC

We love seeing how you live, work and play at Bay Meadows, and without exception the sweetest scenes are being captured at Tin Pot Creamery on South Delaware Street in San Mateo. Foodies, Food Bloggers and Foodtographers are flocking to Bay Meadows to showcase the famous smiley scoops and favorite flavors such as Earl Grey, Chocolate, Cookie Monster, Salted Butterscotch, plus seasonal favorites. Can you say Egg Nog with Boozy Caramel Swirl three times fast without drooling? Indie Brands like TPC and Plandids are on trend (thank goodness because we love both) so why not combine the two, set to a backdrop like Jeppe Hein’s Mirror Labyrinth NY for CA in Bay Meadows’ Town Square? Show us your scoop using #baymeadowslife or check-in in and tag us @baymeadowslife and you may just be among our next round of featured photos.

The Scoop on the Scoop: via Yelp

Amy K says: “YES! So happy to have a Tin Pot open in San Mateo. Our family’s favorite ice cream place on the peninsula by far! Same delicious flavors…toasted coconut is mine, malted milk is my husband’s, and Cookie Monster is my children’s. Friendly service. Clean store with a couple of seats inside and more outside. Will definitely become a regular here!”

Lily C says: “Wow, I tried so many ice cream places in the Bay and this has to be the best one I’ve tried so far!!! They have AMAZING flavors, cookie pots and just really delicious ice cream. The earl grey, pumpkin and chocolate malt flavors are amazing!”

Carolyn L says: “So glad Tin Pot opened up in the hood! I came here for the first time last month and have been back every weekend since. My favorites are the Four Barrel Coffee and Earl Grey. There’s a flavor here for everyone! I sampled about half of the flavors with my friends and we all ooh-ed and ahh-ed at every flavor–there was honestly no flavor we didn’t love/like! The employees are so nice and patient too. Only downsides are prices are steep! But you’re definitely paying for quality ice cream.” rates Bay Meadows high on the list for walkable locations to live on the San Francisco Peninsula and for good reason! Why? Because we are steps from shopping (Hillsdale Center), groceries (Whole Foods), parks, a farmer’s market and an easy bike-ride from downtown San Mateo with its burgeoning restaurant scene. San Mateo’s shared Bay Bikes are on-site, so no need to own your own. And Caltrain is a quick stroll from anywhere in the neighborhood.
