our story

Chefs tell stories, using flavors as words. With the best ingredients, the right balance, Chef Chris Hanmer can send you on a journey, back through time and imagination, bringing memory to life. He has spent his culinary career collecting stories and telling them through food. Then he wondered: What would happen if he took the same approach ... to ice cream?

It's our guiltiest pleasure. The taste of our happiest moments. Imagine ice cream, elevated.

At Parlour Ice Cream House, we combine the exquisite, exacting culinary standards of a world class kitchen with the luxurious pleasure of ice cream and gelato. Each flavor is a time capsule, peeling back layers of sensory bliss. The menu changes with the seasons, inspired by wonder and the spirit of discovery. Parlour will take you on a beautiful escape. And did we mention it's ice cream?
