Since opening two years ago, The Creamery has gained a huge following in and around Cape Town. Who can resist delicious ice-cream in an delicious, ever-changing flavours, made from local, sustainable ingredients. (Who would want to?) Until recently, we’ve had to get our fix at various markets and events around town.
Recently, though, The Creamery opened its very first dessert café in Newlands, where the always friendly staff serves up light breakfasts, tea, Rosetta Roastery coffee, milkshakes, hot chocolate and pressed juice, ice cream pints to take home, ice cream scoops to enjoy there, ice cream sundaes, waffles and desserts paired with ice cream.
The intimate space offers two small tables and counter seating inside and outside. The menu, like the ice cream flavours, changes based on seasonal ingredients purchased predominantly from local family farms. Right now, look out for desserts like Banana Split, Smores Sundae, Pink Lady Apple Crumble and Hot Half-Baked Cookies. In the scoop counter you’ll find limited edition late winter flavours including coconut rice pudding, jasmine blossom and naartjie choc chip.
The cafe is open Tuesday to Sunday from 7.30am-7pm, and until 11pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday for the after-movie and post-supper crowds (thank you!).
