Last night, Lake Street Creamery surprised their fans with a sad announcement: They're shutting down.

The mobile ice cream parlour that launched almost two years ago served up some of the tastiest scoops in town, from their Pancake Breakfast (pancake ice cream with a hint of maple syrup, chunks of real bacon and a sprinkling of coffee dust on top), Donut, to Aztec Sacrifice (spicy chocolate), as well as fun float concoctions.

"Hey All- We want to thank you for being great customers- sadly we're shutting down & will miss you all. Xxx" was the simple message posted to Facebook late Tuesday night, followed a couple of hours later with "Thanks everybody for the kindness. We'll post a blog entry in a day or so with more info."

Plans had been in the works for Lake Street Creamery to open up a brick and mortar location in Burbank's equestrian neighborhood on Riverside Drive. It's not clear right now if that is still happening, as we await further word from Lake Street's Beth Colla and Tim Ferguson about the ice creamery's future.
