Frommer’s Guide

New Orleans 2008: Locals were already justly fond of this local ice-cream parlor, where innovative flavors are made fresh every day, but when it reopened about 3 weeks after Katrina, in a neighborhood (and city) where little else was available commercially, it earned a near fanatic loyal following. Thick, luscious ice cream with a rotating list of flavors from lavender-honey to red velvet cake, with stops at tiramisu, pepper, and more along the way. Completely refreshing, maybe even mandatory on a hot day with late enough hours to make it an option for a snack on the way to or from a club or bar uptown.

June 1, 2004: Creole Creamery, another 1950s-style ice cream parlor, opened in the historic McKenzie’s Bakery space earlier this spring. It joins Vaqueros, La Crepe Nanou, Upperline and Kyoto in this secreted Uptown food pocket and is always hopping. Developer Jim MacPhaille purchased and restored the entire McKenzie’s building (there are apartments upstairs) after a fast-food restaurant threatened to move into the neighborhood. The flavors here are exciting — Creole cream cheese, plum-walnut, bananas Foster… I’ve heard other customers oohing over its ‘creaminess,’ so taste for yourself.

July 2004: At the Creole Creamery patrons pore over the freezer cases… There is, after all, a lot to consider in the extensive menu of ice cream and sorbet, including an entire freezer case reserved for eight variations of chocolate. ‘White Chocolate Butterscotch’ was unique… my favorite was the over-the-top ‘I Scream Fudge.’
