Snow has come to Main Street — snow cream, that is. Alhambra's newest dessert shop Blockheads Shavery started serving patrons Tuesday for limited hours and fully opened over the weekend.
General Manager Brian Liang has been looking forward to bringing the popular West Los Angeles store to Alhambra and said Blockheads staff is still planning the grand opening at 12 W. Main Street. "We've always wanted to extend our store to the Eastside," Liang said in October. "We just thought Alhambra was a good location."
The store's main offering is its snow cream dessert, a cross between Hawaiian shaved ice and ice cream. This icy snack comes in four main flavors: original, green tea, strawberry, and black sesame, along with toppings and sauces.
Blockheads Shavery is open Monday to Thursday from 12:30-10:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 12:30-11 p.m., and Sunday from 12:30-10 p.m.
