CREAM uses superior ingredients to make its signature cookie ice cream sandwiches, as well as rich and delicious brownies, waffles and do’sants, a cross between a donut and a croissant.

You’ll find the cookies are still warm when you are served your ice cream sandwich! Choose your super-premium ice cream flavor, the cookie or another baked goody and a delicious topping to build your ice cream sandwich dessert!

The menu at our ice cream shop includes yummy ice cream tacos, sundaes, milkshakes, floats and more. We also have vegan cookies, gluten-free cookies and soy ice cream.
