“Simple” as it seems and “Classic” as I feel. This is the exact feeling I got when I saw Eurobricks member, The Red Brick’s Classic Ice Cream Parlour.
Classic Ice Cream Parlour
A simple design like this without any complicated building techniques has portrayed such a nostalgic Classic Town design in the 1980s. It certainly reminds me of this LEGO set very much and it’s definitely very much suitable in places like Paradisa.
Come get your ice cream in this beautiful sunny Paradisa beach with our Eurobricks Reviewers Academy Teacher, The Cobra in this pinkish lively 6402 Sidewalk Cafe. This set brought back memories for anyone whom enjoy a pinkish experience in the 1990s.

I am glad to own this set as it will definitely helps to add some colours in your surroundings. Oh, do note that the printed ice cream tiles are one of the rare printed elements in this set. So be sure to have these printed tiles when you buy it.
Looks like the ice cream stores are spreading like Starbucks across Lego cities these days. LowLUG member TijgerSan builds another excellent modular ice cream store, 16 studs wide this time. I really like the flower decorations above the store entrance and those 1 x 2 Technic bricks with axle holes work well as decoration on the second floor. But my favorite element usage has to be the use of these ‘intake’ pieces on the ground floor facade. Don’t forget to check out the detailed interior, complete with a diagonally tiled floor. Oh, and did I mention the ingenious use of bat wings as roof decoration?
Is Erdy's ice cream chain expanding?
But Tijgersan didn’t stop at just an ice cream store. Be sure to check out his Brickshelf gallery, which features a modular bank, book shop, pizzeria, and – my second favorite – florist.
Did you think this was a new City set for a second? Unfortunately it isn’t. Brick Town Talk built this classic ice cream van in a lovely light blue. It is based on a Bedford CF and features some nice custom stickers. TLG, we’ve seen some ice cream carts in the past, but with the expansion of Lego City it will soon be time for an official ice cream van, don’t you think so?
Ice Cream! Which flavor will you have?
I love to see people incorporate multiple themes into a MOC and Eurobricks user Erdbeereis is doing a little cross-theme action with this excellent pirated-themed ice cream parlour. The colors and the curved roof are gorgeous, but what really sets the MOC off are all of the small details and unique piece usage. My favorite has to be the use of the droid legs for a railing/fence. The use of some of the new Indy Jones hair-pieces for ice cream is also well played.
Be sure to check out the Eurobricks thread and Flickr for more detailed pictures and leave a comment to let Erdbeereis know what you think!
