We realize that not many places can experience the wonder and deliciousness of ice cream in January. Most people have to put the sweet treat out of their minds because it’s simply too cold to stand. But not you! You live in Miami, and those unspoken rules don’t apply to you. Be jealous, world.
Here’s a few places to check out when that swirly, chocolaty, creamy craving hits.
425 NW 26th Street
Like art and bar-hopping, Serendipity has become a Wynwood staple. Go to the pop-up yogurt cafe and get truly unique flavors like breakfast cereal, drunken chocolate, blueberry crumble and panther coffee. Everything at Serendipity is made with love and from scratch, and organic ingredients are used as often as possible.
8845 SW 72nd Place
Nanndi was born when owners Sabrina Mancin and Alain Torres wanted to combine their love of entrepreneurship, world flavors and frozen desserts. They believe in social responsibility and being active in their communities, and they hope patrons not only enjoy their treats, but that they walk away happier and more at peace than when they arrived. Some of their flavors include mango sorbet, Oreo and dark chocolate with candied oranges.
Lulu’s Nitrogen Ice Cream
2001 Biscayne Blvd.
What makes Lulu’s stand apart from other ice cream parlors is that they top off each cup with a splash of liquid nitrogen – just enough to give your tastebuds a thrill. They have classic flavors, seasonal flavors and always-fresh toppings designed to make your ice-cream-trip worthy! They have options like Nutella, coconut, honey lavender and cinnamon.
2400 North Miami Avenue
Go to Mr. Kream in Wynwood if you want good ice cream along with a good time! It’s Miami’s first Hip-Hop ice cream parlor, and it’s an experience. They offer lots of sweet treats including the Honey Bun B, which is a honey bun topped with butter pecan ice cream and bacon strips. If you’re an Empire fan, they also have a Cookie Lyon sundae, which is a cookie topped with two scoops of your choosing. The ice cream flavors are abundant and come in sizes ranging from Too Short, which is a small to a Big Pun, which is a large.
Azucar Ice Cream Company
1503 SW 8th Street
This locally made ice cream shop is dedicated to the culture and tastes of Cuba. It sits in the heart of Little Havana and works to give patrons a unique experience that’s reminiscent of getting homemade ice cream from Grandma. They offer signature flavors like café con leche, balsamic-strawberry and berry good fandango. They also offer their original Abuela Maria Ice Cream, which is vanilla ice cream, ruby red guava, cream cheese and Maria cookies.
With all these tasty options at your disposal, there’s no reason to not take advantage. And while you’re out and about, don’t forget about our nearby downtown Miami hotel. You can binge on all the frozen cream you want, and we won’t judge you for a second. In fact, we’ll prepare a cozy bed for you to nap when you’re done.
