Lottie’s Creamery Opens in Downtown Walnut Creek

The wait is finally over as the ice cream shop Lottie’s Creamery opened in downtown Walnut Creek over the weekend. I dropped by a couple of times and it was packed with people trying out the new cream store on the block. As you can see by the photo above the storefront is now decorated with ice cream scoopers and Lottie’s milk bottles in front of the white bench where you can sit and enjoy your scoop.

The photo below (with chef and co-owner Deb Phillips) shows off their inside signage noting that, Lottie’s is “the Bay Area’s only micro-creamery pasteurizing organic & seasonal ingredients on site!”. The pasteurizer is actually visible through the window below the sign. To see a closer view click here.

Of the flavors I tried two that stood out were Irish Coffee Crunch and blood orange sorbet. Absolutely delicious. Of course I went back to my mainstay of chocolate and when I went back another day they were out of Irish coffee crunch so I uncharacteristically went for vanilla which was amazingly good as well. Since they make it there everything tastes incredibly fresh. Speaking of fresh, the fresh mint was great as well. Prices start at $3.50 for a single scoop, and they also serve blue bottle coffee and a few baked goods as well.

    After much deliberation, I tried a dish of roasted banana with a little hot fudge on top . . . highly recommended! Of course now I need to go back and try the same thing with the fresh mint . . . and then maybe the vanilla . . .

      I sat next to someone on the bench eating that and was thinking that’s a great idea. I’m going to try that next time, yum!

    I’m so happy that they actually are finally open. Seems like they had a tough time getting it up and running. I’ll have to swing by and give them a try. Their store front is really cute. I wish them lots of success!

    My 8-year-old said it was the best ice cream she’s ever had, and I agree! The waffle cones are amazing, too.

      I noticed chunky peanut butter chip over the weekend but I had to go with Irish coffee crunch. Yum!
