Dave’s Gourmet ice cream is a client that regularly serves up smiles along with their award-winning ice cream. Located in Santa Rosa, the local shop offers a modern twist on the classic treat by making their ice cream with Liquid Nitrogen! The results are a creamier, richer dessert unparalleled to any other.
Beyond just the fashion in which the treat is created, owners Dave, Marsha, and Michelle Berry emphasize quality by ensuring that every ice cream is made with primarily organic sources, without ever using gums, thickeners, stabilizers, artificial ingredients, or coloring agents. The delectable scoops are created by using local Strauss cream as a base and enhanced with chocolates, caramels, espressos, and fruits, among other mouth-watering flavors.
Michelle runs the ice cream shop along with her parents, Dave and Marsha, who opened Dave’s Neighborhood Market in 1989. The market was originally part of the Berry’s Market chain, operated by Dave, his brother, and his father. While Dave’s brother continues to operate Berry’s Market, Dave and Marsha wanted to create a corner grocery that could locally serve the neighborhood. The family market initially gained popularity in Santa Rosa for its incredible service, deli sandwiches, and coffee; however, today, the shop has garnered even further attention for its award-winning ice-cream.
