Ten Best Ice Cream Shops in Broward and Palm Beach
8. Sonny's Gelato Cafe in Boca Raton
Nicole Danna Sonny's strawberry gelato is made with nothing but fresh strawberries, no red food dye here.
Here, it's all about the gelato -- all 20 or so flavors made fresh daily at this longtime Boca Raton eatery and gelato cafe. What most overlook, however, are the several Italian-style ices with fun flavors like sour apple and tangerine. Today, Sonny's offers more than just gelato, however. The small store also has a case of fresh-baked Italian pastries, and in the past six years has developed a standard menu serving popular dishes like fried calamari and chicken regaloi, making it the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat and a decadent dessert in one stop. Just take a seat outside on the large patio at the corner of Glades Road and Federal Highway and you'll know why everyone says its as charming as it is affordable.
UdderSweets Facebook There are more than 30 flavors of ice cream at UdderSweets in Fort Lauderdale.
With two locations including a new shop in the Weston Town Center and the original location on Las Olas Boulevard in downtown Fort Lauderdale, UdderSweets is truly nothing but sweets, a veritable candy land stocked with enough chocolate and confectionary wonder to keep the tooth fairy in business in South Florida for decades to come. The ice cream selection is enormous -- over 30 flavors in all -- but that's not what makes this establishment stand out. It's the over-21 flavors, as in you must be over 21-years-old to partake in a scoop or two of the Captain Rum Raisin and Cappuccino Kahlua. Too bad the Heavenly Hash doesn't have any...well, you know. Here, the motto is "we scoop it, you make it," meaning you can create your own sundae from scratch. We suggest taking a designated driver in case all the, umm, sugar sends you into shock.
