Antique Shop adds Ice CreamPosted Monday, May 23, 2011, at 5:10 PM
Spanish Street Mercantile, 26 N. Spanish in Cape Girardeau, has converted part of its antique store into an ice cream parlor. The area is furnished with ice-cream related antiques owner Charles Bertrand said it took more than a year to pull together.
He is making his own ice cream in an antique ice cream machine that dates back to the 1940s. Ice cream flavors offered are strawberry, chocolate and vanilla.
He plans to add homemade pies and cobblers to his menu in the future. The ice cream shop is open the same hours as the antique store, from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
