Listen up Cape Town! There’s a hot new ice-cream sandwich shop that’s opened up in Sea Point and it is all kinds of deliciousness. Situated a hop, skip and a jump away from Sea Points vibey promenade, Crumbs and Cream is a very welcome addition to the strip. Ice-cream, cookies and seaside fun… who doesn’t want in one some of that exciting action?!
We popped in one sunny afternoon and it was even better than were expecting. The shop is bright, colourful and cheerful with super friendly staff, comfortable seating and my best – a swing hanging from the ceiling. FUN!
The ordering process is very easy – you simply choose your cookies (from an exciting range including chocolate chip, red velvet, oreo, mint chip, candy crush, brownies, rainbow, vegan, banting and more), pick your ice-cream flavour (everything from vanilla, ferrero rocher, strawberry, sugar-free chocolate, snickers, caramel crunch, choc mint and more), add your toppings (smarties, chocolate shavings, cookie crumbs, etc), and your spread (peanut butter, nutella etc). And then you just sit back, watch your creation come to life and Voila – time to ENJOY!
Crumbs and Cream is the brain child of sisters, Shahar and Or Peled. They started off as a sweet little ice-cream truck at the V & A Waterfront and have grown from strength to strength in the ice-cream world. The concept is fun, unique and downright yummy. The ice-cream and cookie flavours are ever changing which means there are tons of reasons to visit them again and again – each time means a brand new creation.
I went for the banting option which was out-of-this-world-good. The cookies were soft and moist and the sugar-free chocolate ice-cream was bang-on! Full of flavour, rich and creamy and way better than any other sugary ice-cream I’ve ever tasted. The Lop went for chocolate brownie cookies and caramel crunch ice-cream and he managed to mumble a few hmm-hmms in between smashing it down. We loved that we were able to pick up our ice-cream sarmies and enjoy them while strolling along the promenade. It felt like we were on holiday and that’s always a win-win in our book.
Crumbs and Cream Ice-cream shop is located at 16 Regent Road, Sea-Point, Cape Town and is open daily between 11am – 8pm. Their ice-cream truck at parked at the V & A Waterfront daily between 10am – 7pm. An Ice-cream sandwich will cost you R35 which includes 2 cookies and a scoop of ice-cream. Additional toppings and spreads are R5 each.
Do yourself a flavour and visit them… soon!
