Ice cream sundaes for Polk Street seniors

Low-income seniors will soon be socializing on Polk Street over ice cream sundaes.

An ice cream store and coffee shop secured city permits needed to hawk caffeine and sweets on the ground floor of a recently completed residential building at 990 Polk St. at Geary Boulevard.

The permits were needed because the locally-owned store meets The City’s definition of a “large fast food restaurant.”

San Francisco Planning Commissioners unanimously approved the permit application on Thursday.

The store will be the first business to move into the new building, and it will provide a gathering place for residents of the 110 low-income senior units above it, according to city planner Kevin Guy.
