With the store at Orchard Central being most popular, Cold Stone Creamery is an ice cream shop that specialises in “mix in ice cream”, where they mix various ingredients into ice cream, on a cold stable top (so it doesn’t melt) and serve it to you in a cup, preferably lined with crispy waffle. At Cold Stone, they are also known for their acrobatic skills when preparing the ice cream creation. It is very obvious that this place has American origins, from the ice cream flavours and their calorie overload servings.
There are other similar concepts like Cold Rock and Marble Slab, but it seems that Cold Stone is the better of the lot, apparent from the long lines. On a Friday night, the waiting time for ordering was about 20 minutes. However, it is great that they have abundance of seating so no worries about hogging a table at this busy joint.
You can either create your own from scratch for choose from their signature creations.
With the waffle this cosy $6.50 each! The waffle cost $1. There’s also the option for chocolate dipped waffle, for $1.50.

They were all pretty good but if I had to choose one I guess I’d choose the Cheesecake Fantasy! I am a fan of cheesecake anyway, if that explains anything. You can see their other signature creations on their website.
Overall: wouldn’t mind coming back for more!
