It is an ice cream parlor in the location of an old McKenzie's bakery. It is a very popular neighborhood destination. They have a menu just for kids and lots of specialty sundaes. The ice cream is some of the best you can find.

There's something delicious for everyone at the Creole Creamery, even if your favorite ice cream flavor is vanilla. You can sample from among dozens of house-made flavors. Enjoy scoops, sundaes, shakes & malts. Their coffee and hot chocolate are delicious any time of year. One great option is the 4 flavors mini-scoop sampler served in a chilled sundae dish!

Creole Creamery is a homey, friendly, cheerful place. Their ice cream is fresh and flavorful. They have a good selection of basic flavors and a lot of delicious unusual creations, too. They rotate their flavors and frequently offer new flavors. If I'm not choosing one of their amazing chocolate concoctions, I'll go for something with lavender or honey or Creole... More

the lavender honey is lovely, the la vie de rose, with rose wine, but my fave of all is the Mexican hot chocolate, dark choc ice cream with a finish of heat spice, like a gentle cayenne.....to die for, for sure. I'm local and have been there often and will continue to enjoy their delicious ice cream!

Stopped into Creole Creamery after a trolley ride through the Garden district. Service was good, prices were reasonable, & ice cream was amazing! There are a lot of unique flavors to try. We'll definitely go back for more.

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighborhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
