It’s a pretty cool day for ice cream. New ice cream shop Pretty Cool Ice Cream opened in the old post office space (2353 N. California Ave.) with over 50 ice cream flavors, custards and dairy-free options all made in-house. Everything is made in-house and you can see the action from a window in the back. People lined up outside before its 11 a.m. opening time to try the ice cream and discover a new flavor. Excited children and families, dogs and adults showed up to get bedazzled with color, taste and homemade ice cream.

Owner Dana Salls Cree, former Publican brand executive pastry chef and author of “Hello, My Name Is Ice Cream: The Art and Science of the Scoop” partnered with co-founder Michael Ciapciak who owns Big Bang Pie just down the street. The ice cream business has been in the works since Janaury—now, it’s finally a colorful reality. Check out our photo gallery from the grand opening.
