Welcome to The Parlour

Durham’s Favorite Handmade Ice Cream

Now Scooping: The Parlour Junior!

On September 26th we introduced The Parlour Junior, a walk-up window based out of The Common Market on the corner of Iredell St. + Green St. The Parlour Junior features a smaller (but still exciting) selection of scoops, shakes, and toppings 6 days/week. Ordering/service is separate from The Common Market, through the window on the Iredell side of the building, but of course our customers are welcome to use their indoor and outdoor seating.

Our main location (117 Market St. downtown) serves scoops, pints, shakes & floats along with coffee drinks and housemade baked goods every day of the week. And remember, you can always pre-order ice cream cakes on our site, or find select flavors in pints at The Durham Coop Market, Bulldega, and Melina’s Fresh Pasta.

We make the best ice cream around, with the best ingredients. Our flavors are inspired by the seasons, our favorite well-worn cookbooks, and our childhood ice cream memories.
