*** PERMANENTLY CLOSED ***
Technically this is a restaurant, but I wasn’t going to do a report on an ice cream place. But this ice cream is so good I realized it was my duty to let everyone know about it! Ever had ice cream made to order? Well, that’s what they do here!
I love the lights hanging from the doors in the dining room. They also have gelato, churros and cookies.
The way it works is they have several ice cream making stations behind the counter with a freezing cold metal slab. You either decide on your own creation, or you can order one of theirs. They start off by pouring real sweet cream on the slab and adding your ingredients to it. Then, the ice cream technician starts mixing, spreading, chopping, etc., until it turns into ice cream! They flatten it out, roll it up, put it in a cup, top it, and serve it to you.
I decided on the Monkey Business, which contained sweet cream, honey, fresh bananas, sliced bananas, chocolate sauce and whipped cream. My dining partner had the Pralines and Cream, which was sweet cream, pecans, sweet glaze, cinnamon sugar, praline pieces, caramel sauce whupped cream and a whole praline! Both were extremely delicious!
Keep in mind though, it’s pretty labor intensive to make each order. So if you come in and there’s a line of people, it’s going to take awhile to get your order. But if you’re not in a hurry, I think it’s worth it!
