Background Story: Owners Ryan & Cassandra Berk. Ryan Berk began working in the culinary industry at a young age and was always interested in where and how his food was grown. Later in life he found himself frustrated with the lack of connection to the food he was preparing in a corporate setting. He decided to open something with his wife, Cassandra, where they could make connections with local farmers and purveyors while sharing that experience with the local community. They both felt that ice cream was a great way to do this. Today Ryan creates the flavors and manages the kitchen and staff while Cassandra handles the business end of things.
Our Experience: What a cute little place! We have passed this ice cream shop a few times at the Orange Circle but never was able to go in until today. We were so delighted by the kindness of the owner and the employees. It seemed really busy (apparently that’s their slow time) and yet the employees still took time to smile at the customers and make little kids laugh. That takes a great deal of patience and passion for what you are doing and it shows their employees love being part of the company. On another note the location is beautifully designed with details of companies they source from throughout. The ice cream flavors are unique, one we tried was called Beat & Goat Cheese! What? Right?! But it was surprisingly delicious! Our favorites were the Salted Caramel & the Orange Honey. They also have really good Affogato! Overall we highly recommend you to try them out. 🙂
