Atticus Creamery and Pies!

A few weeks ago I had the chance to do a tasting at Atticus Creamery and Pies in Westwood.  The location, which opened in 2014, features fresh handcrafted ice cream and pies that are created daily in the store.  Atticus sets itself apart by creating an entire menu using only natural and fresh made ingredients, including mousse, currant, jam, ganache, and cheesecake.  So, that’s healthy right?!?!

I would have driven to Westwood just to have these pies and ice creams as treats, but now Atticus Creamery and Pies has opened the doors of their second location.  This location is on West 3rd Street, which is within walking distance of my apartment.  This is great and all, but I could get in trouble going here a little too often!

Customer pie favorites at Atticus include their coconut banana pie, salted caramel pie, lemon lavender pie, and ice cream flavors including Nutella Ferrero Rocher, brown sugar apple pie, and brownie a la mode.  The Atticus Creamery and Pies menu offers a variety of ice cream options including sorbets and ice cream sandwiches as well. 

Of the pie flavors that I tasted, lemon lavender was my favorite.  And, of the ice cream flavors, lemon lavender was also my favorite.  It could have been because I just got back from Provence, where I saw fields upon fields upon fields of lavender and the taste was still in my mouth from all of the lavender flavored dishes I ate, but as well as because I feel it isn’t a typical flavor.  I also enjoyed the Earl Grey and Reese’s pies.  While I tried a few of the cheesecakes, for some reason I don’t like cheesecake…any cheesecake!  I try to like them, but I just can’t.  For the ice cream, I also enjoyed the cereal and milk, which has frosted flakes and rice crispies in it.  I also enjoyed the honeycomb because of the ribbons of honey and chunks of honeycomb, and Nutella Ferrero Rocher, because anything with Nutella is a favorite of mine!  Below are some pictures from Atticus.  I hope you enjoy and next time you are near one of the two locations, or ever need a sweet treat, stop in!
