Ice cream is one of those things that you can find whenever you really need it - unless you really need a scoop late night. Then you’re pretty much out of luck. Grocery stores are closed, and the number one customer base for most ice cream shops has a 7:30pm bedtime. Enter, Cream. It may be a mini chain, but they’re up late serving ice cream and cookie combos until 1am on weekends. Leave the bar, get an ice cream sandwich, be happy.
