Ten Best Ice Cream Shops in Broward and Palm Beach
6. Yo Mama's Ice Cream

Owners Lee and Lonnie Feldman opened this sweet shop in January 2010 following the success of their popcorn business known as Pops Corn, and have been scooping up some of the area's best homemade ice cream creations ever since. One step through the door and you're immediately hit with the sweet smell of sugar thanks to a double-dose of dessert goodness with fresh-popped kettle corn and ice cream hand-made daily on-premise. Try the coconut cream with a fresh-pressed waffle bowel or cone, a specialty ice cream with real bits of white chocolate chips, and flakes of fresh-shaved coconut for an extra dose of flavor and texture. The popcorn doubles as a sundae topping, making it one of the many reasons Yo Mama's ice cream really is better than your mom's. Yes, we went there.
5. The Florida Snow Factory

Awarded New Times 2013 "best" dessert, this new ice cream parlor and dessert shop is sweet-tooth overkill. What to order? The snow cones, made with fresh-shaved ice using old-fashioned, hand-operated, ice-cutting machines? Soft-serve frozen yogurt, offered in hundreds of flavors? Or handmade ice cream cookie sandwiches? The bestsellers are the shaved ice, with more than a dozen flavor combinations like strawberries and cream or Dreamsicle. Both begin with a layer of either regular or soft-serve vanilla ice cream at the bottom, topped with layers of fresh-shaved ice and finished with any of the Hawaiian syrups mixed fresh in-house. Customizable, made-to-order ice cream cakes allow customers to pick two of their favorite ice cream flavors and add endless toppings swirled into the mix. Cakes are topped with sprinkles for a delicious, take-home treat.
