I recently ventured into Downtown Durham for an ice cream outing, only to discover what is probably the most incredible ice cream I have ever experienced.
The Parlour is located just off the main road in Durham. It just recently opened and it meets all the expectations you have when you choose to go to an “ice cream parlor”. It has a traditional soda fountain style appearance with a twist, it is classic with a splash of Durham. The counter area looks like an old fashioned ice cream shop but the customer sitting area is more urban, which is reflective of the Durham area it is located in.
You can get a punch card and when you get to 10 you get free ice cream – definitely a plus!
I had the butter salted caramel ice cream, which is a seasonal flavor and it was definitely worth the calories.
If you’re looking for a great location for an outing with your beau or even for a girls day, the Parlour is a great place to go! Even if you are a tourist visiting Durham, then you’re well aware of the caliber of food Durham produces, and the Parlour certainly keeps up with that standard!
Do you have a favorite ice cream shop?
