Brown Chicken Brown Cow, the ice cream shop on Two Street that opened in October 2012, looks to have closed up shop during this harsh winter. The interior is cleared out and a rental sign now hangs prominently in the front window. Oh, and they haven’t shoveled their sidewalk, either.
The former home of Strange Brew Coffee, Brown Chicken Brown Cow offered hand dipped ice cream from Shady Brook Farms in Yardley as well as a variety of desserts, juices and coffees. Much like Strange Brew, it seems as though businesses just can’t seem to stick at the location — no matter how good it is for the neighborhood.
Located within a stone’s throw of Herron Park “Sprayground” at 2nd and Reed streets, it’s hard to believe BCBC didn’t make it for a second summer. While it was certainly an odd location, a consistent flow of people in and out of the adjacent Cross Fit 2 St seemed to show that there was some new life for businesses along Two Street. A welcome site considering new homes are going up left and right.
Though there has been no official “goodbye” so-to-speak, it looks all but certain they have closed. Their website is live but without any information, their Facebook page no longer exists and they haven’t tweeted since last September.
As always, should we find out any more info on the whereabouts of BCBC and the future of the shop in Pennsport, we’ll keep you posted.
