Bluebird Ice Cream

We’re slowly trying to make our way through all the ice cream and gelato spots every time we come for a visit. Bluebird Ice Cream was next in line. They’re located next door to Caffe Vita.

We dropped in on a Friday evening (around 9:30pm). There was a constant stream of people coming in and out while we were there. The inside is small but cute with 5 seats at the bar and three tables (6 seats). There’s a couple tables outside too.

There was 14 flavours (10 regular and four rotating flavours) to hem and haw over. The guy working the front was friendly and let us try half a dozen samples.

Scoops are $4.00 US ($1.50 US for each additional scoop) and $10.00 US for a pint. There’s also sundaes, soda and beer floats (except they didn’t have any beer or soda available due to a snowstorm). Apparently, they usually have 5 beers and two to three soda options. All are made in-house although the ice cream is made off-site.

There’s a bunch of merchandise and growlers.

Their hats are cool but cost $48.00 US. Yes, you read that correctly.

Fancy hipster, one of a kind Ebbets cap wear.

Double scoop ($5.50 US)
DSC02329We went with a homemade waffle cone ($1.00 US) and settled on the caramel creme egg and hurricane (passionfruit, orange and cherry). The caramel creme egg was delightfully airy and creamy. Caramel and vanilla ice cream base with shavings of chocolate Easter egg bits. Hurricane was a vegan flavour; originally, I enjoyed the taste when we sampled it but a full scoop not so much. The fruit flavour was very subtle and didn’t enjoy the texture. I’ve had vegan ice cream before and loved it, just not this one.

It’s a cute but pricey ice cream spot.
