Grand Opening: Lake Effect Artisan Ice Cream

Last evening, after eating on Elmwood Avenue, some friends of mine headed over to Hertel to check out the opening of the new Lake Effect Artisan Ice Cream (learn more). I just happened to be right down the street from Lake Effect at the time, and can honestly say that I have never seen Hertel so busy. Every patio was packed, and ice cream seemed to be on a lot of people’s minds.

Lake Effect is loved locally for their amazing sundaes, and local flair. Buffalonians love Lake Effect because they take things that are locally known and loved… for example, Paula’s Glazed Donut, Ice Wine Sherbet, The Aud, Queen City Roller Girls Rocky Road, and so many others and turn them into our favorite ice cream

I asked my friends to give me the lowdown on the opening of Lake Effect, which they happily agreed to do. When they arrived at the ice cream shop, they said that the place was buzzing with activity, as you can plainly see. “It’s a great addition on Hertel,” said Lily Hamlett, who has been anticipating the opening of Lake Effect. “The location is great for crowds – they appear to be able to handle it easily. It’s like they have always been here. I feel like they need a liquor license for their flavors!”

Once again, Hertel is flexing its business muscle with another wonderful addition to the street. According to owners, North Buffalo is where a lot of their fans live, so it was only natural that they opened at this sweet location.
