  • The vegan sundae at The Parlour: The secret is in the coconut milk.

Fans of The Parlour (such as yours truly) know that lines to buy joy in a cup can extend onto the sidewalk.

Now the popular Durham ice cream shop is expanding into the former Playworks space next door, which will add 1,000 square feet. While The Parlour now seats 24 people, with the addition of the second room, that number will increase to 60.

The new space will allow for a second cash register, which will cut down on customers' wait, a private room for special events, plus an expansion of The Parlour's coffee options.

Among those options? The best of all worlds: an affogato,a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream topped with a shot of espresso. Affogato means "drowned" in Italian, as in I affogato'd my sorrows with an affogato from The Parlour. 

Construction is expected to start in January; The Parlour will likely be closed for two to three weeks while the new space is upfitted.
