If all goes according to plan, the Brewster’s Real Ice Cream at Williamsburg Crossing will soon be adding a drive-thru lane.

Caroline’s Creamery LLC, which operates as Bruster’s Real Ice Cream in the shopping center adjacent to Humelsine Parkway has asked for just that, according to a James City County Planning Division staff report from Jan. 6.

The area is currently zoned B1 — General Business — and is designated as mixed-use on the 2035 Comprehensive Plan. Bruster’s Real Ice Cream is asking for approval for a drive-thru lane around the building.
