Atticus Creamery and Pies
Soft opening today and they said grand opening tomorrow. Located on Westwood and Pico, I'm hoping this place lives up to its potential. Had two scoops - lemon lavender and corn. Corn was really refreshing and just tastes like summer. The lemon lavender's consistency was a tad icy and the lavender was a little forward, but it kinda grew on me. Hoping they give Coldstone next door some competition.
Funny, I literally walked by there 24 hours ago and they were still interviewing for help. Also, the space looked FAR from ready for opening.
In tonight, ten customers at 8pm. Zero at Coldstone 3 doors down, confirming that people do often choose the better option when there is one. They have nine ice cream flavors and four pie flavors. HONEY ice cream is a show stopper. I've always liked the idea of it (Haagen Dazs had one in the 90s), and Atticus' is the best version I've ever tasted. Haven't tried the lemon lavender pie w raspberry gelee base yet, but looks promising.
Nice, enthusiastic staff, great addition to the neighborhood, and I'll be back.
Noon - 10pm. Park in a lot half a block west.
