Crumbs & Cream, Cape Town’s dedicated ice-cream-sandwich store, has taken pity on our sweaty brows and unquenchable thirst for something new by launching a brand new menu for summer. Most notable is the addition of drinks to their menu. The Crumbs Shake (R45) is made with your choice of ice-cream and cookies, then topped with a mountain of colourful whipped cream. Granitas (R29) are also new, with flavours including lemonade-mint, strawberry-lemon and granadilla-lemon-mint.
Crumbs & Cream isn’t pushing the envelope on the drinks front only, though. They’re also including new items like cookie-shaped churros (because the only thing better than dipping your churro in chocolate sauce is topping it with ice cream) and a blondie with white-chocolate chunks.
They’re not ignoring their usual suspects either. New cookies are on the menu, too, with inspired treats like the pretzel choc-chip cookie, the granola cookie (with cranberry and cinnamon) and the red-velvet cookie (filled with white-chocolate chips and topped with mint sprinkles), just in time for Christmas. New ice cream flavours include lemon meringue, coconut, hazelnut-chocolate, and apple pie.
Find the Crumbs & Cream truck in the vicinity of the V&A Waterfront as usual, in addition to their mobile stores in Grand West Casino and Canal Walk (both open until 31 January 2017). Also look forward to the re-opening of the branch in Cavendish Square on 6 December 2016.
Even better? The Sea Point store has now extended its hours so you can satisfy your sweet tooth late into the night.
