Sunny summer days are on their way, and it’s now easier than ever to grab Surrey’s favourite ice cream treat.
The Praguery, which already has two food trucks serving their signature Chimney Cakes and ice cream pints, now has a permanent brick-and-mortar location in the Guildford Town Centre — and they’ve just extended their weekend hours. The rest of the mall may be close early, but every weekend starting May 21, The Praguery will be open Friday to Sunday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Find the shop on the ground level of the Guildford Town Centre, across from H&M at Entrance 5, near Walmart. The Praguery’s founder, Jaroslav Mestka, says the store is just a few steps from the mall entrance.
- From Prague, with love: The Praguery’s signature Chimney Cakes are Jaroslav’s twist on a popular Czech street food. The cone-shaped pastry is filled with soft-serve ice cream and topped with sweet sauces and sprinkles for a summer treat beyond anything you’ve tried before!
- Baked, not fried: Chimney cakes are made from scratch, spiralled around a cone-shaped mould and baked (NOT FRIED!) on a rotisserie grill. Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, with a light dusting of sugar because you deserve it.
- Vegan friendly: There are plenty of Praguery treats for vegans! Vegan dough, vegan soft-serve and vegan pints mean there are lots of dairy-free options in addition to the Praguery mainstays.
- Pints to-go: Have a late-night hankering for quality ice cream? The Praguery offers pints to-go! “Our ice cream is made from BC organic milk, combined with the highest quality ingredients from Italy and Belgium. We love sourcing good ingredients from local farmers for our gourmet toppings,” Jaro says.
Find Praguery in the Guildford Town Centre, on the ground level at the end of the corridor west of the Food Court near the corner of 150 St. and 102a Ave. Open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
