Cornflower Creamery now scooping in downtown Sacramento

At last, downtown Sacramento’s only ice cream shop is open for business.

Cornflower Creamery held its grand opening celebration over the weekend at 1013 L Street, in what used to be Cafe Roma. The walls got a fresh coat of neutral paint, but otherwise, the interior looks about the same.

Today, Cornflower was scooping 11 ice creams and five sorbets in sizes costing $2.50-$5. As promised, Cornflower’s “farm-to-scoop” experience features ingredient-driven modern flavors, such as walnut oil, baklava, lavender plum and strawberry balsamic. I tasted—ahem—a few, and recommend the salted caramel peanut brittle with caramel swirl. A mouthful in name, yes, and also a mouthful of velvety-smooth ice cream with bursts of salty-sweet crunch.

Cornflower also boasts a full espresso bar—utilizing Temple beans—and sells Bella Bru pastries and housemade to-go sandwiches and salads.

Most excitingly, Cornflower is open until 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Hello, nighttime cravings that can finally be satisfied.
