Coolhaus has a Permanent Place on the Street (and in Our Hearts)

Coolhaus has been the hip ice cream truck ever since the food truck trend hit. The line for Coolhaus always stretches around the block, even when other trucks have no wait at all. Thank goodness for the impatient among us, Coolhaus has opened a small brick and mortar storefront on Washington east of the Helm’s building.

Marked only by their trademark logo, the little shop does a brisk business, but has little to no wait. The fun is in the tasting, trying a little of this and a little of that. One man, explaining to his friend after a taste of candied bacon, “Oh that isn’t like bacon. It is bacon.”

You can pair the cookie with the ice cream, with “flapjack” being the popular cookie-of-all-trades, and chocolate chip a close second. I chose one of both – live fast! They had a number of seasonal flavors, like chocolate peppermint stick and eggnog. I was surprised by how much I liked Maker’s Mark pecan pie, because I am not a big whiskey drinker. Pumpkin pie is my favorire ice cream of all, and Coolhaus will mix and match. So I decided it would be like mixing pie on my plate to have both. The Makers Mark was sweet and rich. The pumpkin pie was intense with spices. A perfect ice cream sandwich.

They also have pints and sandwiches packaged to go, Blue Bottle coffee, and an affogato, which seems to be the dessert of the moment. I may be ordering one of those ice cream cakes for my next birthday!
