SHOREWOOD - Indulgence Chocolatiers, 4525 N. Oakland Ave., will add a Purple Door ice cream shop to its chocolate boutique in May.
Indulgence Chocolatiers has three stores in the Milwaukee area, but its first shop opened in Shorewood in 2012. Similar to its Wauwatosa location, the Indulgence Chocolatiers store will add Purple Door Ice Cream, which Indulgence Chocolatiers owner Julie Waterman said would be a new offering for the North Shore suburbs.
“Since the opening of our East Tosa location in 2015, many customers at our Shorewood shop have asked us to bring our ice cream and chocolate pairing concept to that location as well," she said. "With nowhere else in the North Shore community to find Purple Door Ice Cream by the scoop, and the popularity of combining their ice cream with our unique toppings, bringing the concept to Shorewood is a natural fit."
Indulgence Chocolatiers will undergo renovations over the next month to add a 12-flavor ice cream counter, along with other modifications. Indulgence Chocolatiers will also offer signature toppings to pair with the ice cream. Those toppings include, among others, dark chocolate sea salt sauce, cacao nib and candied bacon crumble, grey salt caramel sauce, toffee schnibbles, and honey marshmallow cream. Select flavors of ice cream will also be available in pints.
With the addition of ice cream to Indulgence’s Shorewood shop, the store will extend its hours for the summer. The store will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and noon to 8 p.m. on Sunday. The store will remain closed on Mondays.
