Three years after the ice cream shop opened in Duluth's Lincoln Park neighborhood, Love Creamery will open a second location Thursday at the former Subway in Canal Park.

The store, located at 366 S. Lake Ave., will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day and serve 16 handcrafted, small-batch ice cream flavors like salted peanut butter Oreo and vegan rocky road, as well as takes on traditional flavors. The flavors will vary between the two stores.

“I’m very excited to be able to open a second location. The Canal Park scoop shop will continue the tradition that we have in our Lincoln Park store of being a fun gathering place filled with positive energy," owner Nicole Wilde said in a news release. "Ice cream inevitably makes people happy. And who wouldn’t want to expand that?”

Wilde considered expanding in 2020, but COVID-19 slowed the idea until she was sure the Lincoln Park store had "weathered" the pandemic, the release said. The store set up a takeout option.

“I was elated when people started to come to our store given the pandemic challenges. Even during the winter! I never expected the community’s love of our ice cream to be so strong," Wilde said. "I was, and still am, in awe of this amazingly supportive community.”


The Lincoln Park shop also sells espresso and baked goods from Duluth’s Positively 3rd Street Bakery and features indoor and outdoor seating. Love Creamery partners with local farms and businesses to source ingredients for the ice cream.
