A local ice creamery that specializes in its own from-scratch creations and homemade waffle cones could open a store on Massachusetts Avenue between Porter and Harvard Squares, according to Boston Restaurant Talk. Honeycomb Creamery will seek approval from the city of Cambridge to take over the former Evelyn and Angel's space (which closed in December), where it will be able to establish a permanent residence in the city.
Husband-and-wife team Rory Hanlon and Kristen Rummel started Honeycomb Creamery in 2015. The self-described "ice creamery and waffle conery" produces small-batch ice cream using milk and cream from Mapleline Farm in Hadley, Mass. Honeycomb treats are sold in farmers markets, at events, and in select stores across the region, and this will be the first brick-and-mortar setup for the company.
Honeycomb changes its flavors regularly, but some sample flavors include Earl Grey lemon, salty honey, brown sugar vanilla bean, maple coffee, and chocolate toasted coconut. There are even some vegan flavors, and Honeycomb has a "Pint Club" where customers can sign up to get new ice cream every month.
In a post on its Facebook page, Honeycomb explained the next steps as it makes moves to open at 1702 Massachusetts Ave. Hanlon and Rummel will hold an open house in the space this Tuesday, April 5, where they will answer any questions about the shop ahead of a hearing with the Board of Zoning Appeals, which is set for April 14.
