Marble Slab Creamery
Line moved quickly. Decor is bright, colorful, and fun. Many mix-ins to choose from. Not much seating area inside. Unfortunately, there is only one vegan option which is the raspberry sorbet. It was creamier than expected and had bits of raspberry. If you are vegan or dairy-free, I wouldn't recommend this place, since there aren't many options. However, there are loads of flavors if you eat dairy ice cream. I hope y'all make more vegan options and vegan mix-ins because there's the demand for it.
Awful execution here. The ice cream, in order to mix in toppings, is already on the verge of completely melting. If you put it between two cookies, there is no "sandwich" element here. Biting into it, just squeezes the cookies together and pushes out all the half-melted ice cream. It's also a massive race against time since the "ice cream" was closer to the density of a Cook-out Milkshake. This was the same for my wife who got a cone. It's more like a Cook-out Milkshake, served like ice cream, meaning you end up eating any ice cream like a soup. See my picture and caption. I literally got the ice cream, went outside and had one bite and was just frustrated that I wasted my money on this.
First time trying this spot and it was a disappointing visit. I ordered a milkshake and it was very runny (flavor was okay though). One of the staff members was rather unfriendly as I was paying. I handed her the correct amount of money, she did not count it and rudely repeated the total to me, despite having received the correct amount. I dont often write reviews, but as someone who lives in the neighborhood I would encourage people to get their dessert fix elsewhere.
It's a chain but I'm glad to see the old Nova's Bakery space be occupied again. And with Dairy Queen and Rita's having left Plaza Midwood, this is an acceptable substitute. Glad to have this in the neighborhood and walking distance from us.
Great addition to plaza mid wood. Ice cream is delicious and TONS of topping choices. Didnt try the cookies this time but we will be back. Staff is friendly and efficient.
