Imagine the most luxurious and elegant creme brulee whipped into a frozen frenzy topped with fresh whipped cream and honest to God malted milk balls, and you'd have an apt description of the homemade vanilla bean milkshake for $4.75 we sampled today at this three day old dairy inspired confections shop. But there's a twist. Breakfast and lunch get the full treatment as well and everything is made on the premises. The ample Cobb Salad comes with a delicious Green Goddess dressing for $8.75 while a surprisingly good Cuban hot pressed sandwich, the Media Noche, combines tender pulled pork, ham, manchego cheese, peppery greens, pickles and roasted garlic mayo for $7.75. Additional sweets included a phenomenally rich double chocolate chip cookie and a powedered sugar covered walnut cookie that we call Mexican wedding rings in North Dakota. Bret Thompson, formerly of Patina, is the proud orchestrator and (like Andre Guerrero at The Oinkster) rekindling a passion for childhood favorites. An infectious and eager staff (of the charming, if chaotic, Clementine's and Joan's on Third counter service variety) hang on your every reaction making this a real delight. As I write this, my friend is pointing out the blue velvet cake on the menu. That and the basket of fresh baked Madeleines will have us returning soon.
