Located at 1115 North Park Street off Cook Street, one will find Autumn Maxwell churning out her artisan ice cream in her shop, Cold Comfort.
Cold Comfort uses organic milk, eggs and cream from Avalon Dairy on the mainland. Local herbs and fruits are incorporated into flavours. All other ingredients, if not organic, are natural omitting preservatives, artificial flavours, starches and stabilizers. This is what makes Cold Comfort ice cream denser than commercially produced ice creams, and full of rich flavour.
From classic vanilla bean on a chocolate chip cookie to Hoyne's Dark Matter, Cold Comfort offers detectable flavours for those wanting something completely different.
Over the 6.5 years Cold Comfort has been in existence I've tried East is East, a tangy tamerind flavoured ice cream sandwiched between an almond dacquoise, Hoyne Dark Matter, Mexican Hot Chocolate, Avocado Lime Margarita, Salted Caramel, Salted Caramel Whiskey, Bad Medicine and several other flavours. Flavors vary depending on what fruit may be in season or what Autumn may decide to create.
Available in Pints, and
Scoops, two scoops and in two different flavours if one desires or can't make up their mind.
Outside seating is available on North Park and a little bench area beside Cold Comfort.
