Frigid temperatures have receded, and our favorite culinary titan is coming out of hibernation: Belgian Waffle sundaes are back.

We still bake them in the shop using our proprietary from-scratch batter, but now they're round and even thicker. Stop by this weekend to eat a waffle and watch the final weekend of Awesome Games Done Quick on Wall-O-Vision!

January 06, 2018

A public service announcement: this is the final weekend we'll be serving s'more sundaes this season. They're on the way out to make room for other hot menu items, so if you enjoy hot gooey marshmallows you'd best make haste.

Milk and cookies go really well together, but we suspect that Santa might prefer something with a higher butterfat content.

We'll be closed one week for the holidays! Our last day open this year will be Saturday, December 23rd. Our first day open in the new year will be Thursday, January 4th.

This means that Saturday the 23rd is your last chance to partake in Tubby Robot ice cream in 2017. Whether it's a few hand-packed pints to bring to your family Christmas party or a S'more sundae to warm your soul on a chilly day, we're ready to help you close this year out in the sweetest way possible.

It's cold out there! This kind of weather makes us want to bake cookies, so that's just what we did.

We currently have a batch of freshly baked from-scratch chocolate chip cookies that you can add to any of our menu items or devour on their own. They are soft and delicious and lots of other adjectives.

As a seasonal treat, we've crafted a new flavor for your consideration: Peppermint White Chocolate!

Textured with shards of fancy white chocolate, think of eating it as a preemptive strike against the snow we'll inevitably be tasked with shoveling soon.

Today marks the beginning of December, which means it's time to start celebrating the season in earnest. To do our part we're putting a (literal) twist on a classic Italian Christmas cookie: We humbly present pizzelle cones!

Our pizzelle cones are baked from scratch here at Tubby Robot and are traditionally flavored with crushed anise seeds. Each cone features a light dipping of white chocolate, plus a little extra plugging the bottom to ensure no ice cream escapes.

Specialty cones are notoriously difficult for us to keep in stock, so stop on by while they still exist!

Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday, and we've got something special to share with you!

For the first time ever, we will be selling hand-packed pints of our award-winning homemade ice cream, scooped to order. We'll start selling them on Saturday for a special one-day price of $6 per pint.

As always, you can see the ice cream flavors we have on tap on our website to plan your visit. Stop on by and fill up the turkey-shaped void left in your freezer!

The Tubby Robot Ice Cream Factory will be closed on Thursday, November 23rd. Have a great Thanksgiving, everyone! We'll see you on Friday.

We've heard scores of people clamoring for it, and this week we finally made it: butter pecan ice cream.

Our ice cream base has been infused with butter and brown sugar to make it smooth and sweet. The pecans themselves are roasted in-house with a delectable coating of even more butter and brown sugar. Put it all together, and you've got something that will warm your soul on a cold day.
