ST. LOUIS — Ice Cream for Breakfast Day is this Saturday, Feb. 6. And as far as we’re concerned it’s never too cold or too early to indulge in a scoop or three of your favorite frozen treat.
Several St. Louis area creameries are going all out to celebrate the “national holiday.” The Abby Eats St. Louis podcast team got the scoop on where you can celebrate and how – no need to change out of those pajamas.
Clementine’s Naughty & Nice Creamery
The ice cream shop marks the holiday every year, but this year it’s upping the celebration with a glitzy twist. Clementine’s will be giving away gift cards and jewelry from Tiffany & Co. as part of its “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”-inspired event. Giveaways will take place in stores and on their social media pages Saturday morning. The first 50 families at each location also will get a free gold coffee mug, and you can fill that cup with coffee for $1.
And keeping with tradition, Clementine’s also is rolling out a few limited edition flavors:
- Ricotta French toast with blueberry
- Cinnamon ceral crunch milk
- Vegan coffee & date
If you’re curious about those super popular hot chocolate bombs, those will be on sale in stores as well.

The Shaw nitro ice cream shop will be opening its doors at 9 a.m. Saturday to serve up its breakfast-inspired specialty ice creams. The Ices Plain & Fancy crew came up with five limited edition flavors for the 2021 event:
