Creme and Cocoa Creamery
The 20 Best Ice Cream Shops in NYC
For the husband-and-wife duo, Astrid and Omar Thorpe, the inspiration behind their Brooklyn ice cream shop is rooted in childhood memories from their respective home countries of Haiti and Panama. At Creme & Cocoa Creamery, the result is a range of Caribbean-inspired tropical flavors with highlights like the Island Gal (coconut, ginger) and Nana Cookie (banana, crumbled Nilla Cookie). In addition, there’s also a boozy list of spiked dairy or non-dairy options including the Southern Belle Went Yard (bourbon vanilla, hibiscus bourbon swirl).
Just because it’s getting colder doesn’t mean your days of ice cream eating have to end. Located just 15 minutes away from Prospect Park, family-owned Creme and Cocoa Creamery not only serves classics like vanilla and chocolate, but also flavors native to the Caribbean like soursop ice cream, hibiscus sorbet, and boozy peanut punch. If you’re looking to take your love of ice cream even further, check out their ice cream making classes where COVID-19 safety guidelines will be followed.
