The Creamery, located at 310 South Elm Street just opened this past weekend. This new kid on the 300 block, just down from Scuppernong Bookstore, serves ice cream and will soon cook up local, grass-fed beef burgers. In the above photo, some of the store's first customers are learning about the new establishment. The kitchen area doesn't appear to be quite completed yet. Decorating is simple making a statement in secondary colors. The exterior paint is purple, chairs orange and benches green. It looks as if they are keeping the exposed brick on the inside and that they will have sidewalk seating when the weather is warm. Giant letters near the front of the store remind us that it is L.O.C.A.L.
The keep it local, shop, eat, and read downtown trend is flourishing on the South 300 block. Stop by and see for yourself. Greensboro seems to have been experiencing a little bit of cabin fever. It is time for some outdoor adventures!
