The Creamery: DOCUMENTED

I recently visited The Creamery Ice Cream and Dessert Cafรฉ in Newlands. While I was there, I chatted to Katy-Rose, a manager there, and I learnt lots about the business and how it all started. So here it goesโ€ฆ

Back To The Roots

The Creamery was started in 2010 by Kate Schrire, who wanted to teach people about sustainable farming in a fun way, and she chose ice-cream to do this. All the ingredients used in the products are sourced locally from farmers or people who make home-made goods. If they for some reason cannot be sourced locally, The Creamery pairs up with farmers who source the products themselves. The business is very experimental and new flavours are always being tried and tested. Customersย are generallyย willing to taste new flavours making it easy to see which ones work.

Decor Inspiration

The Creamery is very much inspired by dessert cafes in the USA such asย Jeniโ€™ Splendid. The dรฉcor is cool and quirky. Much of the dรฉcor, such as the bar stools, fridges and coffee machines are The Creameryโ€™s signature colour, Creamery Green.

Where To Find Them

There are a handful of dessert cafes and stalls where you can find The Creamery. (The Creamery is Cape-Town based at the moment). They include Newlands Dessert Cafรฉ (flagship store), Salt River Dessert Cafรฉ (head office), the V&A Market On The Wharf, The Biscuit Mill on Saturday mornings and the lunch time market at the St Georges Mall on a Thursday. Look out for them at their new Mouille Point Cafรฉ, opening soon!

There is also a range of take-home products so that you can enjoy the ice-cream at home too! There are plans to expand these exciting products too.

Flavourful

The Flavour Of The Month Campaign started in March 2015. It is selected as the most interesting, exciting, out-there flavour. There are many interesting flavours that have made an appearance at The Creamery! They include Cookie-Dough, Carrot-Cake, Blackberry Cheesecake, Strawberry and Bazil, Butternut and Toasted Marshmellow,ย and Rosetta Roasted Coffee to name a few.

The Creamery is a family and community orientated business. Their aim isn’t just to make money, but to be a part of communities and families.

So next time you’re not sure what to have for dessert after Sunday lunch, why not try them out? Your taste buds will be tantalized for sure!
