Clementine's Naughty & Nice Creamery

Clementine's Naughty & Nice Creamery doesn't need a boost from the STL 100. If you love ice cream and haven't yet discovered Tamara Keefe's small-batch creations, both the traditional “nice” flavors and the alcohol-infused “naughty” varieties, I doubt whether you really do love ice cream. I could have written all this last year or the year before, too, but it is especially so after Oprah Winfrey gave Clementine's her coveted O List seal of approval in the November 2019 issue of her magazine. If that has further driven demand for Clementine's, take some heart: Last year, Keefe opened a third storefront in Southampton, following the Lafayette Square original and the outpost in Clayton's DeMun neighborhood.
