Charm City Cook: Ice Cream Shop to Open in Hampden

Local, local, local. I’m all about it…you probably are, too. And in Baltimore, we’re getting more and more great local restaurants, bakeries, breweries and more…and now a new ice cream spot! The Charmery ice cream shop is opening soon in Hampden, hon, and earlier this week, I got a sneak peek!

Baltimoreans David & Laura Alima are opening a LOCAL ice cream shop in the old pharmacy space at the corner of 36th and Chestnut – directly across from In Watermelon Sugar. All of the ice creams and sorbets (16 rotating flavors, including vegan and non-dairy) will be made on site. (This makes me very, very happy.)  Think classic flavors mixed with local “Baltimore flavor.” So, vanilla, chocolate, mint chocolate chip, etc…and alongside Lemon Stick sorbet, Old Bay ice cream and Zeke’s Coffee ice cream. Laura and David tell me they will also make their own ice cream cakes, cookies, brownies and more. They’ll offer an entirely locally sourced Root Beer Float using Dominion root beer, which is made in Dover, Delaware. And, of course they’ll serve ice cream sundaes using all housemade toppings and will also offer Lime Rickeys – a refreshing summer drink (sometimes boozy with bourbon, etc., but not in this case) made with limes, fresh flavored simple syrups and club soda. Dave and Laura had Lime Rickeys in D.C. and loved them, so they wanted to make them in their shop. I can’t wait to try one!

Some of their ice creams will be on the menu (along with my salted caramel brownies) atPaulie Gee’s Pizza, which is opening a stone’s throw from the Charmery down Chestnut Avenue later this summer. CAN NOT WAIT.

The shop will be open year-round. In the winter, they’ll offer several hot chocolate options featuring housemade flavored marshmallows and whipped cream. It’ll be so fun to grab a hot chocolate on the way to see the lights at 34th Street!

They’re aiming to be open in mid-July and they’ll be open seven days a week. Summer hours will be 11:00am-10:00pm Sunday-Thursday and 11:00am-11:00pm Friday and Saturday. Like their Facebook page to stay up on their progress and learn more about the deliciousness they will be making – right here in B’more.
