Rolled ice cream, a delicacy originating in Thailand, has become huge in the United States. One rolled ice cream store is I–CE–NY, which opened in December of 2016 in Philadelphia. Their shared grand opening event with The Creamery Cafe is happening this weekend as the two stores open a joint location near Penn's campus.
The Creamery Cafe, located close to campus at 3818 Chestnut Street, will have its grand opening on Friday, October 19. Customers will be able to get free rolled ice cream as well as free soft serve and milkshakes from 12:00 p.m.–2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.–6:00 p.m. In addition, there will be a buy one, get one free promotion running Friday through Sunday this weekend.
The Creamery Cafe is one of many new restaurants opening in the newly renovated Hamilton Court apartment complex.
I-CE-NY Philly and The Creamery Café will share the space, and will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m, seven days a week, according to a press release.
