Queen City Creamery

Ice Cream Shop

This popular coffee shop, deli, and ice cream shop is near the historic section of Cumberland. The building was built in 1908 and originally an office and apartment building. After being vacant for several years, the current owners purchased the building in 2000 and becan a renovation using local items. The oak flooring is from a Mennonite church in Pennsylvania; the wainscoting on the front counter as well as the light globes are from the old Virginia Avenue School. The soda bar and back bar (built by Brunswick in the early 1900's) were in Kingwood,WV, but originally were from a Pennsylvania pharmacy (note the apothecary jars painted on the back bar) and sat 17 people. The booths are local from Sam's Confectionary (that was next to the theatre on Virgina Avenue). The shop has won multiple awards for its frozen custard.
