What’s the scoop?: Nevada City’s Treats ice cream shop is on the move

Treats Ice Cream shop has moved out of its York Street location in Nevada City and plans to reopen on Main Street later this month.

The new storefront, at 210 Main St., Nevada City, is inside the historic Shaw Building, constructed in 1852. The building was originally occupied by a hardware and mining supplies store and later became a saloon, according Susan Shaw, whose family has owned the building since 1934 and opened up Shaw’s Antiques.

Most recently, the building was home to Mountain Temple Gallery, which closed last week.

The upstairs portion of the Shaw Building features a commercial kitchen and “event space,” which Treats owner Peggy Wright said she plans to utilize in creative ways.

Treats plans to eventually move its ice cream production operations into the new location, too, Wright said. But for now, the shop wants to start scooping and serving as soon as possible.

“It’ll be the same wonderful service and the same wonderful ice cream,” she said.

Treats was slated to move into the Tinnery building at 205 York St., which is currently under construction, but plans changed late in the moving process.

“It just didn’t work for us,” said Wright.

Meanwhile, Megan Sasaki and Tyler Freeland, who own Kaliko’s Hawaiian Kitchen, are moving their business into Treats’s former location at 110 York St.

Kaliko’s will serve traditional Hawaiian food, “Nevada City-style,” said Sasaki. The menu will feature healthy ingredients with vegetarian and vegan options, she said, and everything will be made from scratch. The restaurant plans to open in August (See the “Farm to Table” section in Wednesday’s edition of The Union for a story on Kaliko’s Hawaiian Kitchen.”)

Sasaki and Freeland will be serving their Hawaiian cuisine at local events for those who want a taste of what’s to come, including at the first Nevada City Summer Nights on Wednesday, and at Nevada City Farmers Markets on Saturdays.
