Local Love: Creme and Chocolats

Opened by a French-Canadian couple, this shop offers premium soft ice cream, Belgian chocolate and authentic crepes.

There are 8 flavor swirls to incorporate into the vanilla ice cream. Combine that with the 9 flavors of chocolate -- darks, milks and whites -- and you have endless possibilities. There are also sorbet bars and ice cream sandwiches to dip or fondue. And don't forget

the crêpes! Each crêpe is made to order, right at the bar, on an authentic crêpe griddle. Customers have the tough job of deciding what fruit and chocolate to fill it with, and whether to take ice cream or whip cream on the side.
