It seems Facebook is screaming for ice cream (and pie) as Healdsburg’s Noble Folk Ice Cream and Pie Bar prepares to open this week. With nearly 600 LIKES in a single weekend, BiteClub’s got a sneaking suspicion that owners Ozzie Jimenez and Christian Sullberg are about to have another hit on their flour and sugar-covered hands.
The twenty-somethings have become Healdsburg’s favorite cupcake pushers since opening Moustache Baked Goods in late 2011. Cause if you’ve had one—or twelve at a sitting (no judgement)—you’ll pretty much do anything for your next frosting fix. They’re that good.
Noble Folk is a natural progression for the two, expanding their bakery repertoire and their real estate with inspired house made ice creams and heritage(ish) pies.
On the ice cream menu: Black sesame and coconut, cardamom, blackberry rosemary, Japanese purple yam and juniper honey.
Opening pies include strawberry ginger, blueberry plum thyme, walnut maple and apple caramel pies. Noble Folk puts a twist on the traditional by using some unusual ingredients like farro, bolero and buckwheat flour (from nearby Front Porch Farm) and a “single origin pie” that is crafted entirely from Front Porch’s leaf lard, fruit and locally milled flours.
And what goes better with pie than coffee? Especially Stumptown Roaster’s cold brew (all the rage with the cool kids). If you’re like me, you’re often jonesing for a cuppa after 6pm, and la-de-da, they’ll be open ’til 9pm.
Expect to pay about $5.50 for a slice and $3.50 for a scoop. This isn’t Baskin Robbin’s, after all.
116 Matheson St., Healdsburg, (707) 529-2162. Open daily from 12pm to 9pm.
