If Miami had a signature ice cream flavor, it’d be whatever Azucar is serving. The Little Havana scoop shop—which boasts a second location inside Time Out Market Miami—translates the city’s sights, sounds and people into knockout combinations you won’t find anywhere else. Take the Abuela Maria (vanilla ice cream, Maria cookies, guava and cream cheese) and the seasonal Knaus Berry Farm cinnamon rolls owner Suzy Batlle soaks in bourbon and mixes into handmade ice cream—it doesn’t get more Miami than these two.
Before the best coffee shops in Miami courted us with a cold brew and rooftop bars tempted us with the promise of a cool breeze, a visit to a Miami ice cream shop was the only choice for locals looking to satisfy their sweet tooth and cool off after a day of sunbathing at one of the Miami beaches. So even when the temperature doesn’t call for a chill treat (which, granted, is rare), Miamians can’t help but scream for the organic gelato, funky soft-serve and old-fashioned sundaes served at the city’s best ice cream shops, from Little Havana to Midtown Miami to Wynwood and beyond.
