This week’s paper has an update about three new restaurants being built in Kendall Yards, along with a mixed-use building with housing and retail. Now we know the first tenant of that mixed-used building: Brain Freeze Creamery.
The lease got signed yesterday, owner Tom Purdum says, and they’re planning on an opening next spring. (Their spot in the yet-to-be-built mixed-use building happens to be almost exactly across the street from the new Inlander HQ.)
Purdum says the focus will be the ice cream, but it will also be a place to stop for a latté or snack, or even a sandwich. It will be similar in ways to The Scoop, the popular shop serving up Brain Freeze ice cream on the South Hill.
Brain Freeze Creamery specializes in high-fat, high-quality ice cream that comes in a rotating rainbow of flavors like salted caramel, strawberry basil, Rice Krispy treat, huckleberry, avocado and maple bacon, along with sorbets and dairy-free flavors made with a coconut base.
