Like most people, I scream for ice cream. When I heard The Parlor was bringing their innovative ice cream puff idea and homemade flavors to Roseville, I couldn’t contain my excitement.
Tucked away in the Eureka Ridge Shopping Center, this ice creamery attracts a crowd at all hours of the day. The Parlor satisfies my late night ice cream cravings unlike most ice cream places that close at 10:00 p.m.
As a sign in the back of the store reads, “You can’t buy happiness but you can buy ice cream puffs and that’s kinda the same thing.”
By putting a twist on classic ice cream flavors, the Parlor flaunts its individuality and creative identity.
Their ice cream flavors range from the simple vanilla to a coffee ice cream with nutella swirls, both equally as satisfying to my sweet tooth.
Mint chocolate chip is my all time favorite, but I could not stay away from the cake batter. While the flavor seems simple, the visual appeal is not. The bright pink color quickly captured my attention and the cake chunks in the ice cream reminded me of my childhood.
In addition, customers can choose a variety of toppings. Now, I’m sure you are thinking gummy worms and oreos. Yes, those are options but The Parlor is known more for their unique additions like fruity pebbles, coconut, and potato chips.
Although the ice cream was cold, the workers were not. Each employee smiled from the time I walked in, through my requests to try nearly every flavor, to the moment I left.
Their friendly staff in combination with family style seating attribute to its friendly, open environment.
The Parlor offers plenty of seating but many people chose to take their ice cream outside.
The prices for the single scoop and double scoop cups were reasonable especially with the huge serving size. The single scoop is equivalent to a double scoop at places like Baskin Robbins, and the double scoop left me with enough to take home.
While the location is great, another popular restaurant in the shopping center would greatly enhance its business.
