The heat is driving people to find some source of refreshment such as a bowl of ice cream. So why not try the best? One South Florida ice cream parlor was named one of the best spots for homemade ice cream.
Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlor and Restaurant in Dania Beach was listed among Thrillist‘s list of the Best Old-School, Homemade Ice Cream Shops in the U.S. The restaurant, which is located on S Federal Highway, is known for its “kitschy memorabilia” and is called “the kind of place where you eat you ice cream at a proper table.”
According to Thrillist, checking out this ice cream spot is imperative for people in the South Florida area. “Up front, you’ll see a kitschy souvenir shop full of candy and Styrofoam barber shop hats, and the dining room’s done up with enough license plates and other bric-a-brac to make an old TGI Friday’s blush,” the site stated.
“The ice cream menu is full of sundaes that will make your teeth hurt just reading about them, but the king of them all is the Kitchen Sink (yes, it’s served in a sink), which is made from whatever the hell the people in the back feel like throwing in a sundae before charging $13.95 per person (minimum four people). You’ll need everyone.”
Jaxson’s was the only Florida spot on the list, but that doesn’t mean it is the only ice cream place worth checking out. The Post is currently seeing what readers think is the best ice cream shop in Palm Beach County while West Palm Beach’s Sloan’s was named one of the top destinations in a recent poll by USA Today.
