Rolled Cold Creamery, which features rolled ice cream, has opened in downtown Lancaster.
The roughly 25-seat shop at 24 E. Orange St. takes a space next to Himalayan Curry Grill that had previously been a tattoo parlor.
The ice cream at Rolled Cold Creamery is made to order by thinly spreading cream on a freezing cold pan, which turns it into ice cream. It is then carved into the individual rolls —about the size of a roll of quarters — and arranged in a cup.
Rolled ice cream is a traditional Asian style of ice cream that recently began being served at some U.S. shops, mostly in bigger cities.
Rolled Cold Creamery is owned by Dante DiCamillo, a 23-year-old Downingtown resident and recent college graduate who says he opened his shop in Lancaster because it seemed like a great place for such a business.
Before opening, DiCamillo oversaw the installation of some new equipment and furnishings and also painted the walls tan.
In addition to ice cream, Rolled Cold Creamery sells coffee and will soon begin featuring hot cider. It operates with a handful of employees.
