Perkin’ up @ Percantile and Creamery

Well hello there.

I must tell you all about one of my new favorite spots- Percantile and Creamery

This 1920’s theme coffeeshop and café was created by owner Sean, who upon experiencing affogato for the first time on a family road trip decided he needed to open a shop of his own. He is the coolest guy, without a doubt. So when you stop in, make sure to say hey!

The atmosphere of P&C blows me away. There is a beautiful mural of a flapper dancer on the wall, flanked by a restored Model T Ford that visitors can take pictures with. There is succulents in teacups on every table and a vintage typewriter on one of the marble countertops. Windows allow natural light to stream in and reflect off of all the chrome and silver details of the space.

On my initial visit, I opted for the “Bees Knees” latte infused with honey and reminscient of a Cheerio. When you order a drink here, it is served with a chocolate covered espresso bean and a silvery slip of paper. On this piece of paper is a quote or words of affirmation, which is the sweetest touch to an already amazing place. Mine almost made me cry in the middle of the shop:

Sean insisted we try the ice cream, and I am so glad he did. WOW. I went for “cherry blossom” which was a brightly hued pink, cherry infused ice cream. Not only was the color beautifully captured in this picture, it was everything I could have dreamed of and more when it comes to a cherry dessert. It’s ruined me- I can only go here now for my cherry ice cream fix. The seasonal pumpkin spice was also rich and phenomenally flavored- check out that beautiful color as well!

I took some awesome goodies for the road, including pastries and chocolates that are shipped in from a chocolatier in Virginia daily. My favorite was the chocolate filled with creamy peanut butter, velvety and not overpoweringly sweet. There is a huge variety of chocolates and sweets, so try everything from the chocolate cherry truffles to the sea salt caramel. It’s like Pokémon, gotta try them all. I will most definitely stock up on these bad boys on my next visit!

I can not put into words how much fun I had here. I cannot WAIT to go back. Thank you again Percantile and Creamery, I’ll see y’all soon!
