Inside Pendleton Parlor, a New Creamy Whip Offering Soft Serve and Cookie Dough by the Scoop

Summer has come to an end and fall weather is on its way, but Pendleton's new creamy whip understands that soft-serve knows no seasons.

This is Nick Ganim’s family's third ice cream parlor overall and their first downtown. The family also owns the Mt. Washington Creamy Whip and Old Milford Parlor. Ganim’s family has been in the dessert business since the 1920s, when his great-grandparents founded a German bakery in the East End.

At the new Pendleton Parlor, a bona fide second location of Old Milford, visitors can order from a diverse menu of creamy whip flavors ranging from strawberry to Thin Mint, but soft serve won’t be the only choice to fill your cup or cone. More adventurous customers can opt for edible cookie dough by the scoop or choose to blend the batter into a shake or sundae.

There are multiple flavors of dough on the menu, but the core offerings will always include chocolate chip cookie and sugar cookie with sprinkles. Those seeking out a caffeine buzz alongside their sugar rush will also be able to order from a small menu of espresso drinks.

If you find the expansive menu intimidating, Ganim recommends his personal favorite order: “It’s called the Java Whip: We brew the hot espresso into a vanilla milkshake. It hits the taste buds pretty hard.”

Noon-10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday; noon-10:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday. Pendleton Parlor, 1216 Broadway St., Pendleton, facebook.com/OldMilfordParlor
