Milk And Froth Small Batch From Scratch Ice Cream Shop Now Scooping In Downtown Detroit

WWR Article Summary (tl;dr) Three years ago “Milk and Froth” ice cream started out as a mobile truck rolling through the streets of the Motor city. Today the artisanal scoop shop has transformed into a brick and mortar location inside a historic building in downtown Detroit.


They live Downtown and now they own this ice cream shop Downtown. Milk and Froth is located inside Bedrock’s historic Buhl Building at 535 Griswold Street in Downtown Detroit. The scoop shop opened today at noon.

Co-founders Alexis Matteson and Deion Cao say they were inspired to launch Milk and Froth after they say they just couldn’t find any ice cream that lived up to their expectations of what an artisanal scoop shop should be like in a major city.

So what started out as an ice cream truck for them three years ago has now turned into this brick and mortar.

“We are really excited to be opening our first scoop shop Downtown,” said Alexis Matteson, co-owner of Milk and Froth. “The number one question our customers have been asking is how they can get our ice cream year-round, so we are very happy to finally meet that need with our new storefront.”

Milk and Froth makes vegan and classic dairy ice cream from scratch in small batches. Its ice cream is made without pre-manufactured mixes, chemical stabilizers or artificial colors and flavors.

Milk and Froth will serve over a dozen rotating ice cream flavors: Honeycomb, Butterscotch Brownie, Butter Pecan, Matcha Pistachio, Malt Cherry Chocolate, Orange Cream, Salted Caramel, Chocolate Hazelnut, Roasted Strawberry, Milk Chocolate, Peppermint Patty, Coffee & Cream and Blue Magic.

“Small businesses are at the core of what makes Detroit’s retail and dining scene so special,” said Ivy Greaner, Bedrock’s Chief Operating Officer. “We are so excited to witness these two young entrepreneurs expand and provide our Detroiters and visitors their unique Detroit ice cream experience.”
