Jesse Mason and Helen Qin moved from Los Angeles to Cleveland at the beginning of 2013. Here, we found a thriving food scene and a city that embraced small, local businesses - so what better place than to start one?

  At Mason’s Creamery, we make small batches of handmade ice cream using the best ingredients we can source. It takes time and a lot of taste testing, but hey, someone’s gotta do it. We hope you enjoy both our take on the classics and the unique flavors we have to offer.



Helen was born in China and grew up in Houston and Austin. After meeting Jesse in Los Angeles, and hearing stories about his hometown, she is excited to call herself a Clevelander. She does most of the social media and also enjoys making Excel spreadsheets. Contact her at

Jesse grew up in North Royalton, but lived in New York City, Milan, and Burbank before finding his way back home. He makes the ice cream for Mason’s Creamery. He’s also responsible for the photographs and the site design, so if you love it or hate it, let him know at
