Westfield residents now have a new way to beat the heat this summer. Cone + Crumb, a handcrafted ice cream and dessert shop, recently opened at 205 Park St.
Husband and wife co-owners Toby and Melanie Miles said sales have so far exceeded expectations.
“We didn’t know what to expect because when we opened Rail (Epicurean Market, 211 Park St.), nothing was back here, so we just eased into our opening,” Melanie said. “It was just a very different atmosphere back here, but we’ve been really, really busy.”
“It’s been very busy every night. The line is zig-zagging inside and then out the door again,” Toby said. “Even on Sunday it’s like that.”
The top-selling flavors have been Fireside S’mores and Salty Turtle. Fresh Mint Dark Chocolate also has been popular.
“We have everybody taste that first because we have people come in and say mint chocolate chip is their favorite, but we steep the fresh mint,” Melanie said.
“It’s more of an adult mint flavor,” Toby said.
Waffle cones and gluten-free waffle cones are made in-house. All ice cream and desserts are made in-house except for the cookie.
“People really like the waffle cones,” Melanie said.
The waffle cones are sugary, crisp and thinner than a traditional waffle cone.
Cone + Crumb is open from noon to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and noon to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday. The owners plan to open on Mondays when they hire more staff. For more, visit Cone + Crumb on Facebook.
