Baked on Brock

Baked on Brock slings their own house-made sorbets, juices, smoothies and sandwiches along with Greg’s all natural ice cream that's offered in inventive ways like wrapped in bubble waffles or turned into thick shakes.

We add a scoop of cookies and cream to our roasted marshmallow this time, and again Lee tops the whole thing with Nutella syrup and maple flakes, as well as some crunchy, woody pecans to complete the picture.
