What’s this? Forever-in-the-works ice cream shop Avenue Scoop finally opens in the dead of winter? With Jack Frost, the Snow Miser, and all the other personifications of the season out taking a breather, we suppose now’s as good a time as any. Owner Carmen LaRosa opened the doors for the first time on Saturday, according to the Passyunk Post. The shop, which sits directly across from Royal Tavern on the northeastern stretch of P’unk Ave., goes the old school route, scooping only Breyers ice cream for its cones, banana splits, and get this, cannoli sundaes! They also offer bagels, pastries, fresh waffles and coffee in case normal temperatures and conditions return and prove to frigid for the frozen goodies. [P’unk Post]
