Lake Effect Ice Cream’s New Scoop Shop

Just in time for summer, Lake Effect Ice Cream will be opening their doors at their new scoop shop this Saturday (June 4) at 20 Lock Street, Lockport NY (about 100 yards from the historic flight of five locks in downtown Lockport).

Owners Jason & Erik will be offering their locally made artisan ice cream in flavors such as Salty Caramel, Frozen Hot Chocolate, A Date at the Zoo, Banana Pancakes, Cinnamon Toast, Ellicottville Stout, Green Tea, Irish Cream, Loganberry, Love Potion #9, Mint Chip, Mocha Cappuccino, Nickel City Heat, Omanhene African Chocolate, Queen City Roller Girls Rocky Road, and Silver Cloud Vanilla.

They will also be introducing Artisan Sundaes created with the help of other local artisan bakers. Some of the sundaes offered will be:

The Banana Maple Stack

Pancakes ice cream drizzled with local maple, and topped with pecans,
whipped cream and a cupcake top.

The Chocolate Smore-cupine

mini marshmallows, chocolate sauce, real whipped cream, and stuck with
honey graham sticks.

whipped cream, and chocolate sauce.

The Honey Bear

The Lake Effect Scoop Shop will also have cones, milkshakes, floats, pints, and beverages. Their weekly specials will be local fruit of the week, ice cream of the week, homemade whipped cream of the week (starting with chocolate whipped cream), and cereal topping of the week. Now that the local ice cream you love has a permanent home, you can visit (and taste) it Wednesdays through Sundays 12-9pm.
