Cementing the Bene’t Street area of Cambridge as the city’s new foodie quarter is 6 Ice Cream – an adorable new ice cream shop which popped up last month. It’s owned by Suzanna Arschavir and Sheila Bremner, two friends who share a love of all things ice cream and are fulfilling a long-held dream inspired by shared holidays to Italy.
On offer in the gorgeous shop (we love the stripy floor and gold counter!) are a range of freshly made gelato, sorbets, sherbets and ice creams, packed with seasonal, organic and locally sourced ingredients. The menu changes every day and there’s always lots of enticing flavours to tempt – recent hits include white chocolate and cardamom, strawberry and rose, and the Cambridge greengage ice cream.
Suzanna and Sheila are both looking forward to giving the menu lots of autumnal and wintry twists in the months to come too – expect yummy appearances from pears, pumpkins, caramels, nuts and spiced fruits, as well as ice creams served with warm roasted fruits, on toasted brioche or in spicy hot chocolates or affogato.
As well as traditional cones and cups, you can enjoy your icy treats in a range of creations including open ice cream sandwiches, sundaes, sodas, lollies and cakes. You can also pick up heavenly milkshakes, cakes and tarts (including pastel de nata on Fridays), as well as freshly brewed Monmouth coffee.
