It’s true what they say; money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy ice cream and that’s pretty much the same thing. When it comes to spots offering that all-important spoonful of happiness, Capetonians have loads of choice and now Mother City locals can add one more fabulous ice cream spot to their list as local ice-cream company, The Nice Company, have just opened their first shop in Bo-Kaap. Here’s the lowdown on the new The Nice Company ice cream shop in Bo-Kaap.

Previously only available at local delis and select stores around the city, The Nice Company’s delicious artisanal ice-creams are loved by many a Cape Town ice cream fan. The opening of their first dedicated store is a big step for the local producers who have been manufacturing ice cream from their Westlake-based factory for 20 years.

Bo-Kaap is famous for its vibrant, colourful vibe and is considered a must-visit destination for both locals and tourists and there’s no doubt that the new Nice Cream store will add even more reasons to visit this bustling suburb. Because what could be better than exploring the small twisted cobbled roads of Bo-Kaap with a tasty icy treat in your hand?

the Nice CompanyThe new store is scooping up an expansive range of incredible ice creams, sorbets and frozen yoghurts, which are all created using only the highest-quality ingredients. The best part about the brand is the wide and unique flavour range – from dark chocolate, salted peanut butter, and raspberry to rosewater, and apricot cheesecake – there’s definitely something for everyone!

But that’s not all – the menu at the Bo-Kaap store will also offer a few new exclusive flavours as well as baked treats and milkshakes for passers-by to enjoy and savour at the store or on-the-go.
