Thank you for your interest in Lafayette Creamery. We are honored to have your attention and are eager to serve to you our superpremium hand-dipped ice cream or another of our satisfying frozen desserts.
There’s hardly a more refreshing way to wind down after a Michigan summer day that with a full flavor offering on a freshly prepared waffle cone—except to add freshly chopped nuts, sprinkles, or more chocolate. It may also be true that this is the perfect way to “power-up” for the day—so do come see us beginning at 10:30am.
Again, we’re glad for your interest in our ice cream and we hope that you’ll feel welcome to come spend some time with us, soaking up Michigan’s summer sun while enjoying a Kalamazoo-produced treat using local sources and natural processes.
Located at 7933 South 8th St., Kalamazoo MI 49009 at the intersection of 8th St. & Centre Ave. (aka Q Ave.) in the heart of Texas Corners and within walking distance of the Texas Corners’ Farmers Market, Texas Corners Brewing Company, Zeb’s, and The Cheese Lady.
A great biking destination on the Texas Drive Trailway near Texas Drive Park and Al Sabo Land Preserve.
Lafayette Creamery is pleased to offer up to 16 superpremium flavors at any one time including frozen yogurt creations, sherberts, floats, malts, shakes, sundaes, and other frozen treats.
We are also a curious sort—seeking out unique flavors and delicacies from around the world to incorporate into our repertoire---and hope to expand the palates of ice cream lovers. So if you are a curious personne, be sure to inquire as to what we are working upon.
Summer gives way to fall which gives way to winter and our daily routines change ever so slightly. As we at Lafayette Creamery prepare for our first winter we want to thank all of our loyal-all-year-around-ice-cream-eating-fans and all those who have supported us through our first season. We’ve greatly appreciated the patronage and the warm welcome to Texas Corners that we have received from so many.
While we will not see everyone as frequently as during the warm summer months we will continue to produce ice cream until next spring to ensure that your fix is always satiated and your holiday table impresses. Through the winter we’ll continue to produce all the flavors you’ve come to enjoy and we’ll be turning out a few new seasonal varieties as well---Thanksgiving flavors, Christmas flavors, and a great new popcorn flavor to stimulate your palate as you bundle up to watch your favorite shows and movies over the winter months.

One of the first questions we encounter relates to the name “Lafayette Creamery”—here is how it developed. A number of years ago my 5 year old was taken with books on military history, we read book after book of George Washington and the Revolutionary War. Within one of these contained a snippet on the heroism of General Marquis de Lafayette and the important role he played in securing victory. It is beyond the scope in this place to detail his many accomplishments and beliefs except to say that he was a strong and inspirational individual. Be encouraged to read more through Cornell University’s collection of manuscripts by clicking this link.
The story of this enterprise stems from a humble upbringing involving those blessed beasts that make ice cream a possibility. Though Lafayette Creamery is opening its doors in 2016, it has existed for many years in my head and in my heart. We are proud to join the ranks of the many courageous American entrepreneurs who chase dreams seeking to fulfill their vision while seeking to provide something better to the public.
