The Creamery. What a lovely place. My afternoon of time-outs and tears was rescued by an invitation to eat ice cream with some friends. I have only enjoyed salted caramel in a wafer cone once before, but it is now a firm favourite.

Some reasons why this place is so fabulous:

-They have nice staff who are nice to kids. This is a good start.

-You can taste as much as you like and they don’t get annoyed.

-They give the kids their scoop in an extra big cone which means minimal mess.

-They gave Kira-pie a free mini ice-cream in a cone – what a win!

-No one moaned when we left a table covered in spilt sugar or when Ilan decided to lick the table ‘like a doggy’.

-Jugs of lemon water freely available to rinse your sweet teeth and occupy the kids’ attention for that extra two minutes.

Thank you for saving my afternoon, The Creamery. And thank you Cape Town for another summer day in not-quite-the-middle-of-winter.
