The Ice Cream Cottage Cafe: Maple View Comes to Wake Forest!

June 2013 Update: Since the time of this posting, the Ice Cream Cottage Cafe moved from 401 Wait Avenue to a larger and more centrally-located site on 105 S. White Street in downtown Wake Forest. Visit their website or their Facebook page for the scoop.

Maple View, the 2011 Winner of the Rose and Indy Awards for “Best Ice Cream”, is now available in the town of Wake Forest!

Where: The Ice Cream Cottage Cafe, 105 South White Street, Wake Forest, NC 27587

GF Menu: No.

What I ate: A Medium Cup (2 Scoops!) of Double Chocolate and Orange Cream hormone and antibiotic-free local ice cream from Maple View Farm in Orange County, NC.

How to order it: Despite my numerous attempts asking about gluten in their ingredients, Maple View Dairy did not respond; therefore, I am unable to provide specific information from the source. However, At FRESH in Raleigh, I was informed that many of the ice cream flavors from Maple View Farms are naturally Gluten-Free.

To be safe, always ask the server about ingredients when placing your order. Use your best judgment, avoiding flavors like Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Cookies & Cream.

What it looks like:

Dreamy, creamy euphoria served with a spoon. The Double Chocolate flavor is dark and rich, with terrific mouth-feel. The Orange Dream is my new favorite, airy and delicately citrusy. Combining these flavors, I imagine a frozen version of Terry’s Chocolate Oranges from the UK.

Green Note: The Ice Cream Cottage Cafe is local and independently-owned. The cottage features ample indoor and outdoor seating, as well as a variety of plants and herbs for sale. In addition to homemade baked goods, the owner’s wife sells her organic herbal handmade soaps, shampoos, lotions, and candles in the cafe shop.
