RE: Coffee Ice Cream
Slightly similar, I was in a cafe Germany wanting a nice, cool glass of iced coffee, my summer daily fix.
Like Pete, my waiter didn't hestiate. Then out he comes with a huge bowl of (coffee) idea cream, mit schlag, cookie and umbrella on top!!!!
(I forgot that the German word for ice cream is "eis" so "ice coffee is not the potable kind. oops!)
