While waiting to pick up his aunt at the dialysis centre nearby, we spotted this newly opened ice cream parlor cafe – Shrove Tuesday.
Shrove Tuesday interestingly is also known as Pancake Day. A day preceding Ash Wednesday (first day of Lent) which is celebrated in many countries by consuming pancakes. Shrove Tuesday, a moveable feast, is determined by Easter. The expression “Shrove Tuesday” comes from the word shrive, meaning “confess”.Shrove Tuesday is observed by many Christians, including Anglicans, Lutherans, Methodists and Roman Catholics, who “make a special point of self-examination, of considering what wrongs they need to repent, and what amendments of life or areas of spiritual growth they especially need to ask God’s help in dealing with.”

This cafe must be opened by a Christian / Catholic! It wasn’t too shabby and the ice cream is decent, smooth but a little sweet. It is also on a pricer side but we are happy to have a quick fix of ice cream whenever we are nearby! Yay!
They have other frozen desserts which looks great as well! Will want to try one someday!
