Sweet Nel’s to Open Wilmington Location

A Pennsylvania café is bringing organic ice cream and gourmet coffee to the First State on Sept. 1.

Nelson’s Creamery has been making premium ice cream in Royersford, Pa., since the 1920s and is one of the only ice cream manufacturers still left in the Delaware Valley. The creamery is now opening its own café concept—Sweet Nel’s—on Sept. 1, on U.S. Route 202 in Wilmington.

The café will feature Nelson’s new certified organic ice creams, traditional ice creams and natural gelato made on the premises. The café also includes a full-service coffee operation featuring La Colombe coffees as well as a bakery featuring Famous Fourth Street Cookies and other pastries.

Many products are made on site, including hot fudge, caramel topping, chocolate products and fresh gelato flavorings.

Another component of Sweet Nel’s is its sustainable and natural business approach. All of the packaging is made from corn, wheat, straw or rice, and is 100 percent compostable. In fact, the café’s compostable waste goes to a farm in Pennsylvania, eliminating the presence of chemicals, plastics and artificial ingredients.
