©Iván Moreno Eyescream and Friends

They're not claiming to have the best ice cream in town, but they scoop up a good product with friendly service and their main draw is the innovative way the ice cream is presented. They used shaved ice cream that has a texture somewhere between ice cream and sorbet. It works like this: They take a bit of ice cream, and cut it with a machine in slices, like you'd see with cheese or ham in a deli. It isn't so pretty, so the solution is to add a couple of sugary eyeballs to cute it up, and serve it on a plate in a cardboard tray with two toppings. Staring into the eyes of a cheesecake ice cream with Oreo cookies and chocolate is quite the guilty pleasure.
