Rhea's Ice Cream Parlor (pronounced Ray's) was opened in the winter
of 2009 by Rhea Ortamond who founded the business on pure passion
for home made ice cream. Over the next five and a half years, she
perfected dozens of original flavors that became the ice cream
foundation of the shop. In June of 2015 Rhea moved to Chicago to
follow her heart and instead of closing her doors opted to sell the business to Lindsey Belk and The Root Cellar Cafe in order to continue
the ice cream legacy. After months of rigorous training, the secret recipes were passed down to the new owners and the shop lives on. With the knowledge inherited from Rhea, the enthusiasm of Lindsey Belk, and the culinary expertise of The Root Cellar Cafe, Rhea's Ice Cream is destined for great things!
