A friend (and big fan) of ~SCREAM SORBET~ let me know they are now selling pints and sorbet sandwiches out of their retail storefront next to Bakesale Betty in Oakland. The space has been under painstaking renovation for a while, so Temescal neighbors are happy to finally see the business ramping up. Scream is currently selling their hyper-seasonal line of 12-oz. pre-packs and year-round favorites for $8-$10 (with some awesome flavors for Thanksgiving!). Chef Stephanie Lau has come out with an expanding line of sorbet sandwiches, like coffee almond sorbet with a ginger molasses cookie, macadamia vanilla with a chocolate wafer, macadamia vanilla with a shortbread cookie, Meyer lemon sorbet and rose-flecked shortbread cookie, and one I really want to try: pistachio sorbet with chocolate cardamom cookie. The sorbet sandwiches are $4.75. The owners hope to be scooping a week or so after Thanksgiving, but for now, hours are 11am-9pm. You can follow up-to-the-minute reports on their Twitter feed. 5030 Telegraph Ave. at 51st, Oakland.
