Tucked along bustling Mass Ave in the heart of Cambridge’s Central Square, New City Microcreamery is the second edition of the Hudson-born scratch ice cream shop.
New City Microcreamery is the culmination of a global search for the world’s best; from San Francisco to Northern Greece, no ice cream was left untested. The end result is a cross between the creamy concoction of yesteryear and modern technology at its most delicious. The creative confections start with milk from Mapleline Farm, then come the boundary-pushing ingredients like red wines, rice milk horchata and fresh fennel in surprising (and surprisingly tasty) combinations. Executive pastry chef Alyssa Lieberman (a L’Espalier alum) and team flash-freeze their flavors with liquid nitrogen for an incredibly smooth, creamy, fresh-tasting result that’s not complete without a house-made waffle cone. You can also treat yourself to an array of coffees, lattes and hot chocolates, plus bagels and pastries.
The Cambridge location features all of the charm of the original Hudson location, with classic ice cream parlor vibes, counter service, string lights and neon signs. Perfect for popping by to celebrate any sweet occasion — or just because!
