Curl de la Crème Ice Cream Parlor
Family owned ice cream parlor, bringing Rolled Ice Cream from New York to the South.  Select the mix-ins – such as fresh fruit or baked products – and watch as fresh cream is poured onto a frozen pan.  The mix-ins and cream are then mixed, pressed, and rolled before your eyes, and finished with up to 3 toppings.
