A fresh, tart version of the classic pie, this feature ice cream for Scoopfest is dedicated to a friend of the shop. Dave Funston was a community supporter, husband, and father who sadly passed away recently.
The team at Noto made this inspired by his favourite flavour: Key Lime Pie. It’s made with a custard base and real limes.
