Fun Date: Hertel Ave. Poutine & Cream

Ok, guys, you’re gonna like this one. Allen St. Poutine just opened their second location on Hertel and not only do they have the poutine but also debuted Freak Shakes and Creamy Buns. 

What?!


I met the head honcho, Marc Adler, at the Hertel location as he was greeting everyone who came in to check the place out. What a nice, down-to-Earth guy! He began the Allen St. Poutine Co. a couple years back and also is the CEO of his own business Why Not Marketing, LLC. He was inspired by the crazy milkshakes he was noticing in big U.S. cities and knew he had to bring them to Buffalo. They also make their 12 flavors of ice cream right there- it is creamy and yummy! He even traveled around the states to taste-test, study, and get inspired by others doing similar creations so he could get it right. Sounds terrible! 🙂


The Creamy Buns are donuts filled with ice cream then pressed in a panini-style grill to warm the donut up. The Freak Shakes are decorative, fun shakes served in glass-handled root beer mugs.

We really dig this location- Hertel is just bumpin’! And suddenly…it is becoming a very fun ice cream/dessert destination with Lake Effect Ice Cream opening their second location (FINALLY!!!), Lloyd beginning their soft serve next to the taco factory, and now Allen St. Poutine with their shakes and donuts. Don’t forget- you have Blackbird Sweets and Romeo & Juliet’s with all the baked goods you need to satisfy your sugar craving. Good grief, Hertel!! 

So plan out your visit- get some poutine and end it with a shake or creamy bun! Sharing optional.
