Cremalosa, a gelateria from gelato master and Atlanta food writer Meridith Ford, will open this Friday, Feb. 21 on the plaza level of Cortland Decatur East Apartments, a new mixed-use development on East College Avenue in Decatur.
Cremalosa’s menu will showcase around a dozen rotating flavors of gelato, all spun in-house on a Carpigiani gelato machine imported from Italy.
Crafted from local cream and farm-fresh ingredients, flavors will include a mix of traditional Italian options and offerings inspired by desserts, cakes, cookies, and penny candy—think banana pudding, malted milk ball, gingersnap cookie, hummingbird cake, Snickers Bar, lemon meringue pie and peach cobbler.
In addition to scooped gelato, layer cakes, and popsicles, Cremalosa will soon serve boozy shakes, adult affogatos, canned beer, and wine by the glass or bottle.
At just under 1,000 square feet, Cremalosa was designed by local architect Brian Finkel and constructed by local contractor Ben Lassbeck of LCM International, with interior design from local designer Scott Long.
“I am unbelievably honored to be opening Cremalosa’s doors in the Decatur community,” Ford said in a press release Thursday.
“My hope is that the shop serves as a place where families and friends gather often to enjoy each other’s company and some delicious gelato.”
