The excitement surrounding the launch of Earnest Ice Cream‘s second location in Mount Pleasant proves there is no bad time to open an ice cream shop. In the heart of Winter, owners Ben and Erica have flung open their new Quebec and 2nd Avenue doors to serve lineups of adoring fans.
The great news is that this new location is a production facility in the back with a retail area in the front, meaning…thanks to all this new space, both Earnest Ice Cream shops will be open six days a week (as opposed to the old very limited hours).
Beautiful wooden beams, exposed brick and white tiled walls make for a beautifully designed interior that you can enjoy as you down your cone, sunday, affogato or Matchstick Coffee. Some of my favourite flavours include Oatmeal brown sugar, a coconut milk baksed kaffir lime and 33 acres of malt, a collaboration with 33 acres brewery.
Much of their 2700 square foot space is dedicated to production, but you’ll find a handful of small tables and standing room dedicated to ice cream consumption.
Earnest on Quebec will be open Tuesday to Sunday, from 12pm to 10pm. Follow them here on Twitter for updates.
