Opening Day at Ice Cream Cafe
Today 5/7 was opening day at Ice Cream Cafe a much awaited day in our household. My husband and I first discovered Ice Cream Cafe back in 2010 when we were looking for a house on the Cape and had read about Cottage Street Bakery’s Dirt Bombs in The New York Times (be on the lookout for my upcoming review). So when we went to Cottage Street Bakery I saw Ice Cream Cafe and being pregnant at the time decided I had to come back to try Ice Cream Cafe soon and thus began our families love of Ice Cream Cafe. At that point Ice Cream Cafe was the only great ice cream in town. Ice Cream Cafe is located at 5 S. Orleans Rd. Orleans MA and hours vary by season so check their website www.icecreamcafe.com.
We arrived at Ice Cream Cafe around 3pm when we got there one other person was ordering and there was another group of people eating outside on the deck. We were helped promptly we all sample a few ice creams before deciding on flavors. My 5 year old decided on a kiddy peppermint stick in a cone, my 3 year old a kiddy cookie dough in a dish and me a small cone with peanut butter cup and coffee heath bar in a cone (there are so many yummy flavors it is hard to choose). All the ice cream flavors today were fresh, flavorful, smooth and delicious my only complaint is the small cone was about the same size as my sons kiddy cup (one of my pet peeves with ice cream is when my ice cream is smaller than it should be). The menu options at Ice Cream Cafe are huge from coffee to baked goods to ice cream to smoothies plus lots of dairy free and vegan options; there is definitely something for everyone. I really like the Non Dairy Salty Caramel Ice Cream as well as the Dirt Bomb ice cream which I did not realize they had until I was eating my ice cream. In the nice weather there are chairs as well as some tables with umbrella outside but during inclimate weather there is only very limited seating inside. By the time we were leaving lots more people had come by to get ice cream.
While I was there I spoke with Greg the owner and he said that this summer among other new flavors there will be cashew milk ice cream and chocolate peanut butter ice cream which I am very excited about!
Have you been to Ice Cream Cafe, what’s your favorite flavor or goodie?
