I Scream Cakes

2641 Cherokee St. St. Louis, MO 63118 | St. Louis - South City | 314-932-5758

Location Description:

I Scream Cakes' owner Kerry Soraci saw the potential of Cherokee Street -- but the eclectic neighborhood was missing something: ice cream. And not just any generic ol' ice cream. Here you can find dairy-free, gluten-free and even doggy-friendly selections. The parlor is vibrantly painted and equipped with big rubber bouncy balls you can sit on while you scarf down scoops of made-from-scratch frozen treats. But not only is there ice cream, Soraci also makes cakes and cupcakes, which means the blueberry-cheesecake ice cream contains cheesecake that's made in-house with organic blueberries and a homemade custard base. It's one of the greatest dessert combos of all time.
