A half term treat at Creams
This half term has felt long, with colds and generally feeling a bit run down, so half term couldn’t come quick enough. I love the school holidays – as any teacher does. And I was really looking forward to having a chill out with the girls. For that reason I didn’t plan too much for us to do, just catching up with friends and trips out to the park. However, every school holiday, I do take the girls out somewhere to eat together. It’s a little tradition for the three of us which I love. We were invited to Creams Cafe in the Brewery Quarter, Cheltenham on Friday to try out some of their desserts. It was a great way to end the week together.
The girls had been to the Brewery Quarter earlier in the week – enjoying soft play at The Play Farm. There was a real buzz of families in the Brewery Quarter when we arrived, as in addition to soft play, there is also a cinema, ten pin bowling and crazy golf. Creams itself was also fairly busy, but despite this, staff were friendly and helpful. We were shown to our table and had as much time to peruse the menus as we needed before going to order at the counter.
There was so much choice! Creams offer a huge selection of ice creams, waffles, crepes, cakes and puddings. There is then a separate children’s menu. Emily usually takes a long time to decide on what she wants to eat, but spotted a picture of a chocolate sundae on the menu and decided that was what she was going to have. Freyja was a bit more adventurous and decided to create her own sundae, consisting of Creams soft whipped vanilla ice cream, chocolate chip gelato, mini marshmallows and toffee sauce. I was tempted to create my own too, but was a little overwhelmed by how much choice there was, so opted for a Creams Sundae Royale.
It did’t take long for our food and drink to arrive. We were all very impressed with the presentation of the sundaes – as seen by the expression on Emily’s face when hers was placed in front of her.
The ice cream also tasted delicious. It didn’t take long for Freyja and I to polish off ours. Emily took longer. In reality, it was a bit too big for her, but she wasn’t going to leave any of it.
Creams was a real indulgent treat, and a great way to finish off the half term holiday. We will definitely be back, and will be trying to work our way through the menu!
