Our story

MEET THE MAKERS

Hannah Pollock & Xavier Meers

Nightingale Ice Cream Sandwiches was founded by husband and wife team, Xavier Meers and Hannah Pollack. A native of Belgium and 25-year veteran chef, Xavier came to the States to open and run restaurants and soon met Hannah, a former marine and chef herself. During a five-year restaurant run together, they created the first Nightingale ice cream sandwich as a restaurant dessert option. Soon after, they left the restaurant kitchen behind to fully embark on their new venture—one born from a love of their culinary crafts, classic desserts, and each other.

 

Nightingale Ice Cream Sandwiches are gourmet and handcrafted, so they cannot be compared to any other ice cream novelty. Each sandwich uses 14 percent butterfat ice cream, locally sourced inclusions, and hand mixed and made cookies. At first bite, you can taste the difference. Each bite brings memories of childhood, but with a sophistication in flavor that won’t be forgotten.
