|Inside the shop - I mostly forgot to take pictures!|
No one does it better than the guys at Lake Effect. I follow them on social media and most posts makes me want to drop what I'm doing and drive to their shop. They run a great collaborative business and their recent creations keep making me think, "They did WHAT?"
For Fathers Day this year (6/15/14) they are running a special involving...hold on...Guinness Chocolate Stout ice cream. And that's just the beginning.
I've had their ice cream often from Wegmans, but had never made it out to Lockport to their Scoop Shop at 79 Canal St. This summer, I knew that had to change. I gathered a crew and we took a road trip (45 min by car is a road trip for me, ok?) for their 2014 opening night.
I had scoped out their special offerings and decided on a gourmet popsicle (a "double double" - coffee and cream - yesyesyes) and their new sundae, El Guapo.
Here's the full description of El Guapo: "Two and one half scoops of our Silver Cloud Vanilla ice cream, rolled in cinnamon Chrusciki Bakery cinnamon and sugar butter crumbles. Then topped with our house-made cinnamon chocolate sauce, local honey and real whipped cream. The crowning piece to this sundae is a cinnamon crisp baked especially for us from our friends at Elm Street Bakery." (from Lake Effect's Facebook page)
See what I mean?
