Since 1983, Marble Slab Creamery has used its cold-marble technique to create ice cream and frozen treats fresh in-store. Customers look on admiringly as expert marble mavens take fresh ice-cream flavors—including distinctive varieties such as birthday cake, red velvet, and banana pudding—and blend in any of more than two dozen mix-in ingredients. Mix-in options include familiar candies and fresh fruits, which smoothly acclimate into each slab-spun creamy concoction and find solace in a spoon-ready cup ($3.99 for a small with one mix-in; $5.99 for a large with one mix-in), freshly baked hand-rolled waffle cone, or in the missing marble hands of Venus de Milo.
Those who prefer ice cream served cylindrically for easy passage through laundry chutes can slice into Marble Slab’s ice-cream cakes ($17.95+). To make sweet cream and strawberries, staff hand-blend berries with sweet-cream ice cream and layer the concoction atop fluffy yellow cake, and for vanilla Oreo, skilled spoons intermix sandwich cookies, vanilla ice cream, and chocolate cake.
Marble Slab Creamery
The Marble Slab Creamery sensory experience begins by just walking past the storefront, where the buttery scent of fresh-baked waffle cones drifts out into the air. Once inside, cans of gourmet ice cream, crafted on site from Marble Slab’s original French recipe, entice the eyes with a rainbow of colors. Once clients have made a flavor selection, they choose from a smorgasbord of mix-ins, from fresh fruit to nuts to candy and crumbled cookies, which an ice cream chef then hand-folds in atop a frosty marble slab before packing the finished custom-designed flavor masterpiece into a house-made waffle cone.
In addition to procuring hand-held treats, Marble Slab Creamery can send creations home in a variety of other formats, such as ice cream cakes, cupcakes, and hand-packed quarts, or in the capable hands of a catering team that arrives at events with portable marble slabs or sundae bars in tow.
