Gourmet ice cream on a warm Palm Springs day – what could be better? Maybe ice cream and a well-curated gift shop to peruse while enjoying your sweet treat in air-conditioned comfort? The newly opened Ice Cream & Shop(pe) at ARRIVE hotel in Uptown Palm Springs is just that, with a large selection of outstanding artisanal ice cream and sorbet in flavors that rotate regularly, plus a shop full of darling items that you won’t be able to resist, like tees, candles, sunglasses, games, travel items and more.
Proprietor Athalie Laguerre worked with a master ice cream maker to develop unique flavors for the shop, like lavender and pink ginger ice creams and Champagne sorbet. Milk shakes and sundaes are also available, with the shop open late daily.
