Ice cream bliss with Lake Street Creamery

Pancakes, pure Canadian maple syrup, applewood smoked bacon, and peaberry coffee. No, its not what I had for breakfast this morning. It’s one of Lake Street Creamery’s featured ice creams. I recently ran into Lake Street while chasing down food trucks at the Downtown LA Artwalk. The owners had perched themselves under the awning of the Don Chow taco truck, armed with just some spoons and a cooler full of frozen bliss.

Lake Street Creamery was started by Beth and her boyfriend Tim at the suggestion of their friends. They loved making ice cream, why not start a business. And that they did. With flavors like Holiday Chocolate, Ghiradelli chocolate with hints of the Holiday season: cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and and just a little ginger, or Donut, which was like having a Krispy Kreme melt over your tongue. Try their Aztec Sacrifice, a Ghiradelli chocolate ice cream which slowly develops into a slightly spicy confection as it lingers in your mouth.

It’s a small operation for now, and the Artwalk was only their second event. But they hope to be up and fully running soon, with hopefully a truck of their own someday. Their web site still says coming soon, but you can follow them on twitter or become a fan on Facebook.
