Watch Your Ice Be Made From Scratch at Ice PanThe ice cream at Ice Pan could stand alone as one of the best frozen treats in the city. But it’s the experience of visiting this ice cream shop that puts it over the edge and makes it a must-visit. Ice Pan’s major draw (besides their wonderful menu) is the fact that you can watch your ice cream be made right in front of you! It goes like this: you pick your fruit or vegetables and watch as your server blends the ingredients, pours the mixture over an ice-cold pan, and waits for a few moments as the mixture/freezes into a delicious ice cream dish. It doesn’t get any fresher than that.
Ice Cream Is Just the Start at CREAMA true ice cream connoisseur knows that while the texture and flavor of the ice cream itself is extremely important, the dish is only as good as what it comes with. And while you can find here all your usual suspects of ingredients–M&Ms, gummy bears, whipped cream–CREAM goes a step further by packing their delicious ice cream between two freshly-baked cookies. Plus, with vegan and gluten-free cookies, everyone has an opportunity to try CREAM’s offerings.
Unique Flavors and Adults-Only Drinks at BLVD CreameryThere’s nothing wrong with a great scoop of vanilla or chocolate ice cream, but after a while, that gets a little boring. Even more adventurous flavors, such as rocky road and peanut butter, start failing to excite once you’ve had enough of them. If this sounds like you and you want something new to blow your socks off, it’s time to visit BLVD Creamery at the Monte Carlo. Here you’ll find flavors like none other, including apple pie, lemon cheesecake, and watermelon jalapeno. Yes, there is such a thing as water jalapeno ice cream. Other treats to look out for include the fried donut ice cream sandwich and alcoholic milkshakes.
Luv-It Frozen CustardStep back in time with a scoop from Luv-It Frozen Custard, a family-owned business that’s been running for more than 40 years. Don’t expect any crazy flavors or experimental ice cream forms – Luv-It is all about delivering that old-fashioned drive-up ice cream parlor experience. That extends to the seating: there is none, so expect to eat while standing or from the comfort of your car. You can usually find vanilla and chocolate on the menu with a few other flavors that change daily. Like you needed additional encouragement to visit multiple times during the week!
