Frozen dessert spot Off Track Ice Cream opened this past Saturday, June 29, at 6 Beaufain Street. Restaurateurs Marc and Alissa Zera renovated the 1875-built space to become a 35+ seat shop with a full ice cream production kitchen.
Off Track serves traditional ice cream, as well as vegan and gluten-free versions. “We use the freshest, Lowcountry-sourced ingredients,” says Marc, “and never any artificial flavorings, additives, or stabilizers.” For example, the mint chip ice cream actually tastes like a mint leaf freshly plucked from a Southern garden.
The shop has creative options for milkshakes, sundaes, and cookie sandwiches. For example, the Salty Beach sundae is one scoop of vegan sea salt caramel ice cream, vegan hot caramel, vegan whipped cream and toasted coconut chips,
The shop is bright, airy, and a bit industrial with exposed brick and concrete floors. Pops of pink come for the neon logo on the wall. There’s plenty of tables for communal ice cream eating. Have a look around the shop here with photographer Lesie Ryann McKellar.
