New Berkeley Ice Cream Store Coming Soon?

  • f

I was walking home after dinner down College Avenue in Berkeley when I noticed a new ice cream shop was opening near the corner of Ashby and College. The location itself is gutted for seismic retrofiting and remodeling, so the only clue was a floorplan on the window.

The floorplan stated that the lease was for an ice cream shop with the front half of the space a retail area and the back half of the store an office and a kitchen. The existance of a kitchen leads me to presume that the ice cream will be made on the premises.

Perhaps we will have another artisan ice cream maker in the vein of Sketch in Berkeley. For those who find it convenient to take a peek, I don't know the address, but the floorplan can be found on the west side of College on the third storefront north of Ashby.

  1. Sounds like the old Botts is getting reborn. Those people were so lovable and their ice cream was quite good.
