Sweet, creamy, cold and delicious, ice cream is a welcome delight no matter the time of year. Whether it follows a Little League victory or is something to savor while enjoying a post-movie discussion, or as an after-dinner treat, ice cream hits that sweet spot for everyone.
Located in the busy Woodland Hills Village shopping center, Baskin-Robbins offers more than 31 flavors of creamy bliss, scooping up chilly treats ranging from cones to shakes, sundaes, cold drinks and custom-made cakes every day. The Village’s Baskin-Robbins has been open for more than 25 years, but owner Kal Patel purchased the location in September 2015. “I’m from England,” Patel says. “And I thought, ‘I need to move.’ I looked at a lot of locations, at a lot of places. I looked at Dallas and other big towns, but I liked Tulsa. I like it here.”
Seeing an opportunity, Patel chose the Baskin-Robbins near 71st and Memorial and made it his own. “I refurbished it, made it nice and fresh. I emphasize customer service; it’s the key to business. I learned that from working at Disney World in Florida.”
Patel’s emphasis on great service and great ice cream has revitalized his Baskin-Robbins. “I get lots of great feedback,” he says. “And plenty of return customers.” Under Patel’s leadership, the Village Baskin-Robbins has flourished.
The bright, clean shop sits on the lower level of the Village, bright with natural light from the floor to ceiling windows. It’s a natural choice after dinner at one of many nearby restaurants like Leena’s, a night of laughs at the Loony Bin or a movie at Village 8. With flavors ranging from Bubble Gum and Daiquiri Ice to vanilla and Jamoca Almond Fudge, there are options that appeal to children and adults alike.
The ice cream is the star of the Baskin-Robbins show of course, with enough flavors to make your head spin. “At this store, I have 48 flavors,” Patel says, “including dairy-free and sugar-free varieties. We also have Greek yogurt flavors and sherbets.” Delicious options include multiple flavors of chocolate and coffee, fruit flavors and varieties that appeal to children, like, traditional favorite Bubble Gum. The ice creams are rich and have just the right balance of sweet. Varieties like Peanut Butter ‘n Chocolate or Cookie Jar Mashup are generously mixed with nuts, fruits or other textures so that every bite is a tasty experience.
Besides high-quality ice cream in unique flavors, Baskin-Robbins offers other traditional ice cream treats like sundaes, shakes and smoothies. A signature Baskin-Robbins drink is the Freeze, a cool and refreezing blended drink. “Try it with the Daiquiri Ice sherbet,” Patel suggests. You can also have them blend up a Cappuccino Blast or a Fruit Blast, enjoy a smooth and creamy parfait or a sweet mix-in with candy stirred into vanilla soft serve.
Some new additions to the menu offerings include their decadent warm cookie sandwiches and sundaes. These treats feature soft, warmed cookies in your choice of flavors, one or two scoops of your favorite ice cream, and a garnish with your choice of rainbow sprinkles, chocolate sprinkles or almonds. The sundaes include a rich sauce, whipped cream and a cherry.
In addition to delicious, creamy ice cream in a seemingly infinite variety of flavors, and other unique treats, Baskin-Robbins is famous for its ice cream cakes. “This store sells more cakes than any other store in seven states, that’s how good our cakes are,” Patel says. “We can do photo cakes too, actual edible images on the cake. We have licenses with professional sports and with Disney, so you can get any image you want.”
There are more than just traditionally decorated cakes for you to take home. Baskin-Robbins makes unique and fun seasonal cakes like the colorful Easter egg cake or the Bunny Roll cake. Some other festive choices include the mini cupcake cake, the Clown Cone Party Cake, the Too Cute Cupcake Cake, the Sand Pail Cake, and even a cake shaped like a football or a heart. “The most popular flavor is the Oreo cake,” Patel says. “Don’t get vanilla, don’t get chocolate. Get the Oreo. Everyone loves it.”
