The Creole Creamery Restaurant Review

: There are surprisingly few ice cream shops in New Orleans, despite its tropical climate. That makes The Creole Creamery even more in demand than some other local hot spots. In addition to classic ice cream flavors, you'll find such offerings as lavender honey or chocolate amaretto cheesecake. Blueberry mojito and grapefruit shandy sorbets are ideal after a hefty meal. Local specialties include ice creams made with Creole cream cheese. With new flavors constantly emerging, you’ll want to return often. A "hall of fame" plaque immortalizes patrons who have conquered the Tchoupitoulas Challenge --- finishing an eight-scoop ice cream sundae loaded with eight toppings. Also located in Lakeview at 6260 Vicksburg St., 504-482-2924.
