Fans of the shaved ice dessert shop, rejoice: Snowdays has opened a flagship sit-down cafe near Barclays Center in Brooklyn, to serve plated desserts and drinks alongside their signature shaved ice treats. Dubbed Snowdays Cafe, the shop will serve Intelligensia coffee, flavored hot chocolates, iced coffee drinks, and desserts like matcha brownie made with ceremonial grade Japanese matcha and white chocolate; condensed milk brioche toast, with a sugar-crusted top; and Snowffagato, a take on affogato served with espresso and Snowdays’ sweet milk shaved cream. Snowdays’ milk-based shaved ice—made using upstate New York dairy—is called shaved cream, to reflect the combination of the fluffy texture in Asian shaved ice treats with the creaminess of ice cream.
The new cafe also includes a cereal bar, where you can order different cereals (Lucky Charms, Honey Bunches of Oats, Cap’n Crunch, and more) with your choice of milk and assorted toppings like fresh fruit, nuts, Oreos, mochi, and sweet sauces.
Open Monday to Thursday, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.; and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
