Disclaimer: I was invited to check out N7 Creamery as a guest before their grand opening. All opinions are my own, no compensation was given.
Mommy took me to see some people she knows, and I got to goof around with some kids and eat snacks. She let me have a couple bites of a cake with poppy seeds in it, and I cried when she took that away, but I really REALLY liked the strawberry ice cream she hand-fed me.
Well, I mean she used the little wooden spoon and fed me, she won’t let me eat ice cream with my hands.
N7 Creamery has pastries, snacks, decadent coffees an hand-made ice cream all in the Victoria Gardens shopping center.
The location has lofty ceilings and wooden walls, and the large chalkboard menu is easy to read in a crowded room. There is the front area, and a hallway leads to more seating past glass windows looking into the kitchen.
It offers ice cream made with a liquid nitrogen process. Literally, the cream and flavors are mixed in a mixing bowl and the liquid nitrogen freezes it while it churns in the bowl.
I have a couple of these places in my hometown, and ice cream made this way is amazing. We tried four flavors- an orange, a green tea, a salted caramel (Mommy’s favorite) and my Foodie Baby’s favorite, strawberry. If you order ice cream, be sure to walk around to the side (pictured) and watch the process. Get a little summer chemistry lesson by watching the freezing gas and maybe get a refreshing wave of dry ice on you at the same time.
A tip from Mommy – Going to walk around with it? Consider asking for it to be made extra cold so it won’t melt as fast.
N7 Creamery is working to use fresh local ingredients – I only live a few minutes away from where their strawberries are grown!
I recommend the chocolate three different kids of chocolate chips and a lavender latte (heavenly) for a quick break during shopping errands. Or for a cool reward at the end of a hot shopping day, definitely a scoop of ice cream – the green tea is great for those who just want something cool and refreshing, while the salted caramel will give you a pat on the back for a job well done.
There are plenty of small table and chair sets, and if it’s not very crowded a stroller fits nicely if you decide to take a break from back-to-school shopping. There are bathrooms, a family room and changing table are located centrally in the Victoria Gardens complex.
