Hammond’s Gourmet Ice Cream had their soft opening today at 3077 University in North Park. Located just west of Urbn Pizza and part-owned by a good friend of ours, they’re serving 32 delicious flavors of Hawaiian Tropical Dreams ice cream just in time for summer:

Between today and their appearance at the North Park festival a few weeks back, my favorite ice cream samples have been Salted Caramel, Chocolate Coconut Macadamia Nut, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Oreo. Jay’s Mint Chocolate Chip featured full-size chocolate morsels, not those chopped-up bits. I have to stick with sorbet for the most part and they’ve got 4 flavors, all of which are tasty.

The interior has some cool touches, like the rack of ice cream serving spoons:

…and the sundae glass chandelier:

I also like the gathering table made of a thick slab of eucalyptus from a local tree that fell over. And there’s a street-facing counter where you can watch University and North Park grow more vibrant by the day.
