Grab A Cone At The Creamery

Send to Kindle

I popped into The Creamery yesterday for an ice-cream, on recommendation from a friend who said it was simply the best ice cream around. Well, they were right! The Creamery, which is in the very lovely area of Newlands, undoubtedly serve the tastiest and creamiest ice-cream I have ever had.

Everything is handmade and they use only the freshest ingredients from local farms and seasonal fruits and herbs etc to flavour these delicious treats.  When I arrived, it was packed with people sitting inside and out trying to eat their ice-creams faster than the sun could melt them. The staff are incredibly friendly and encourage you to sample the different flavours before making your choice. I took full advantage of this and tried a few different flavours.


The Creamery


The sea salt caramel was amazing, it had such a rich caramel flavour without the sickly sweetness that usually comes with it. My choice in the end was the white chocolate and the mint. The white chocolate ice-cream tasted exactly like a good old creamy bar of white chocolate and was super yummy. The mint was incredible, it wasn’t like mint flavouring that you would find with other ice cream shops, but rather tasted of fresh mint herbs, almost like having a mojito!

I decided to get a huge scoop of each on a sugar cone, while my other half chose to blend the two with the farm cream flavour, into a whopper of a milkshake. This milkshake was so amazing and probably the best milkshake I have ever tasted.  I was ecstatic with my choice, although it was so hot outside that I had to race through my ice-cream to try prevent it from melting everywhere, which I was unsuccessful in and still managed to get it all over my face and on my clothes. But hey what is an ice cream without making a mess?!!


The Creamery


Every week they change their flavours, and this week I was gutted to find that the lemon curd and the toasted coconut were sold out. I took a peek in the fridge, where pints of ice-cream are waiting to be purchased, and found a tub of lemon curd sitting at the bottom … score! I took this one home with me, although, we made a stop on the way home and landed up eating that too. It tasted just like a lemon meringue pie, with real blobs of lemon curd swirled through the vanilla.

The Creamery also serve waffles, light breakfasts, sundaes, coffee and a few other delicious delights. The best part of all is that they are open late. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays they are open from 07h30 to 19h00 and on Thursday, Friday and Saturday you can grab a cone from 07h30 to 23h00.
