We saw this place on a food/travel show and stopped by after lunch on a sultry Southern afternoon for a sweet treat. It was a cute local place in the middle of a residential area. Service was friendly. I tried the Peanut Butter Fudge Pie ice cream, which was very rich and you could taste the peanut butter a lot.... More

Very tasty, with some nice sophisticated flavors. Only wish we'd spent less time looking at the flavor options and more time looking at the scoop options. Wanted to try a couple, so my wife and I both got 2 scoops. The scoops were enormous - like double what you would expect. We couldn't even finish it all, and were almost... More

This little spot was on our bucket list because of a food show my daughter had previously seen. It is definately a neighborhood hotspot, the flow of traffic that was coming in and out of the shop was continuous. There were 15+ flavors for us to choose from and toppings galore. I chose the red velvet double scoop in a... More

My friends and I enjoyed an afternoon ice cream treat. Peppermint, hot fudge sundae, vanilla...all were delicious and served with a smile. Don't park in the strip mall lot across the street, as your car will get booted. Cool place and good ice cream for a hot summer day.

This ice cream parlor gets great reviews, and I do not want to say it was bad, and I really feel that a lot of people will enjoy the variety of flavors here, but for someone who just likes Plain-Jane flavors, it was just average for me. I had chocolate, and it was fine. My date had 4 different flavors... More

We live down the street from The Creole Creamery so we go there all the time. The ice cream is made fresh. You always see them whipping up some tasty flavor through the back window. I usually get black and gold crunch when it is in season. It is hands down the best flavor, but the kids love Cookie Monster... More

One of the most memorable things I ate in New Orleans this weekend was a recommendation from a 5-year-old girl. She wanted her mother to take me and her to Creole Creamery for an afternoon treat. Let’s just say that you can trust a five-year-old when it comes to ice cream. Creole Creamery is a colorful ice cream shop in... More

Peanut butter fudge pie, red velvet cake, malted chocolate chip...those are the flavors we tried when we visited Creole Creamery a few days ago. Everything was wonderful, but oh, that malted chocolate chip was divine! We liked that they had interesting local flavors and not the same old thing. We'll definitely go back.

I had high expectations before visiting this place as it's a highly recommended ice cream joint. However, I was disappointed as I had much better ice-creams elsewhere. If you are in Mumbai or Pune in India; you should try Naturals Ice Cream and then probably, you'll understand what variety flavors I am talking about. Overall a ho-hum experience. A reduced... More
