Millie's Homemade Ice Cream Will Have You Screaming for Scoops
We’re all screaming for Millie’s Homemade Ice Cream! For the first time, grab a scoop of this fresh and tasty ice cream right from its brand new shop in Shadyside. Classically served in homemade waffle cones, blended in a milkshake, or floating in the finest Red Ribbon soda, the locally sourced frozen treat is a seasonal must. “We have four or five long-term standbys that we call ‘unseasonal’ ice cream,” explains Chad Townsend, co-owner with his wife, Lauren. But 12 to 15 different flavors — including a few sorbets developed from fresh fruit — are always on rotation based on the time of year. “We also have a really fun item that we’re going to be doing that’s a traditional Sicilian breakfast food,” says Townsend, before describing Gelato Con Brioche — a grilled Italian ice cream sandwich that’s warm and crunchy on the outside while remaining frozen in the middle…fantastico.
