Ice cream shop opens at Stanford Shopping Center

Uploaded: May 19, 2018
Walnut Creek ice cream shop Lottie's Creamery opened a new location Saturday, May 19, at Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto.

Doors opened at 10 a.m. Saturday, according to a Lottie's Facebook post. The shop is located at 240 Shopping Center Way.

The Lottie's Facebook page describes it as a "neighborhood micro-creamery pasteurizing local and seasonal ingredients," with rotating flavors such as rose cardamom pistachio, blackberry cheesecake, key lime pie and molasses bourbon pecan. Lottie's also serves homemade macaron ice cream sandwiches.

Lottie's is one of several new food-and-drink options opening at the shopping center this year, including Shake Shack, Joe & the Juice and Nespresso.

The $5 single scoop size is pretty tiny so if you want to feel satisfied, you'll want to order a double at about $7. This is from my experience with the WC shop. Prices may be higher at Stanford due to the rent.

Personally, I've never tasted better ice cream than the kind I can make at home. Get quality seasonal ingredients at farmer's market. The rest is EASY, and for 15 bucks you'll have a 1/2 gallon left in the freezer for later or to share with friends, who will become your BEST friends after they taste what you created.

But homemade is always best, This is Palo Alto. If it is not priced high enough, people won't go there. And Prices have to be high to keep low income people from visiting these places to avoid causing discomfort to rich people. LOL. And I never understood the madness behind people's craziness and standing in line to buy this stuff.

$5.00 for one "small" scoop? Am I totally out of touch with reality?

$3.00 will buy you a half-gallon of Safeway Select this week. Except half gallons are now just a quart and a half.

Safeway Select is NASTY! It's not "ice cream". Have you read labels lately? Everything is proessed/fake, a long ingredient list, and gmo-laden foods. Why does ice cream need more than the standard few(er) (the fewer the better!) needed ingredients? It's unhealthy and overly sweetened too.
