Residing in the yellow building at 209 Main Street, Creole Creamery on the Bay offers a wide selection of homemade ice cream flavors that will impress all who come to test a scoop.
Equipped with pink and white checkered floors and the smell of freshly made waffle cones, Creole Creamery radiates all the classic ice cream shop vibes. While the shop is stocked with all the classics, visitors will be amazed by their large variety of truly unique flavors and seasonal specialties.
A few of their current holiday ice cream flavors include Speculoos Christmas Cookie made with Speculoos cookies, swirls of cookie butter, streaks of buttercream icing, and crispy holiday sprinkles; Pumpkin Praline, perfected with roasted pumpkin, brown sugar, Chinese five-spice and pecan pralines from New Orleans’ Southern Candymakers; and their popular Black & Gold Crunch, a double vanilla and chicory root ice cream with crushed Oreos and chocolate chips. With their selection of flavorful, homemade ice cream, it’s no wonder that The Creole Creamery earned the title of Yelp’s 2022 "Best Ice Cream in the state of Mississippi."
“Can’t buy me love but you can buy me ice cream” is written largely on the pink walls near the entrance of the Creole Creamery’s party room. Ice cream enthusiasts couldn’t agree more with the phrase and the idea of a special private party featuring their favorite chilly treat! Creole Creamery on the Bay offers a variety of party packages to host your next birthday, special event, or meeting with them.
In celebration of their hotspot status, Creole Creamery on the Bay will have Elton Barrett and his banjo playing live music from 5-7 pm. The creamery is also hosting a raffle for a $25 gift card. Receive an entry to the drawing with any purchase from Creole Creamery on the Bay on Second Saturday! Be sure to swing by on December 10 to experience their delicious ice cream and see why they were named the number one ice cream shop in Mississippi.
