Ice cream sandwiches in Miami. It’s amazing someone didn’t think of this sooner. The snack seems like a perfect fit for a city that lives its life on the go, often slogging through punishing heat, in desperate need of some sweet, sweet relief.
Luckily, Wynwood Parlor stepped up to fill our dessert void about a year ago in the form of a food truck. It quickly became known around town for its homemade ice cream sandwiches, like the Bedrock (a scoop of vanilla between two red velvet cookies, all rolled in Fruity Pebbles) and the Key Lime Pie (which features white chocolate Key lime cookies).
This Sunday, Wynwood Parlor will open its first permanent location, the Wynwood Parlor Sweet Shoppe, just in time for National Ice Cream Day. The shop will be located in Miami’s Upper Eastside (860 NE 79th St) within walking distance from the Anderson. The store will be quaint and will function a bit like a grab-and-go cafecito window with outdoor seating available. The menu will also be expanded to include milkshakes, pie, cheesecake and those Hong Kong bubble waffle tacos you’ve seen all over your Instagram feed.
The new and improved Wynwood Parlor will open Tuesday through Sunday from 4–11pm. And the food truck will still be rolling around Wynwood as well. And, in even better news, both the new store and the food truck will offer delivery on Postmates, UberEats and GrubHub.
