The weather is looking pretty promising, finally, and now that it’s warming up outside ice cream is the go-to food! It is so refreshing and there’s no shortage of ice cream here in Boston! Today I’ve highlighted some excellent places around the city to grab your favorite frozen desert!
Berryline is a local chain started by a Harvard grad who just wanted to provide the world with some quality frozen yogurt. Of course frozen yogurt isn’t ice cream but it’s just as good if not better! At Berryline you can chose from a few different flavors (including the flavor of the week) and sizes, then add toppings from there. If you want mango, watermelon, strawberries, or even captain crunch, chocolate, or gummy bears they have it! The combinations and possibilities are endless at Berryline. With several locations around Boston the most convenient one for city dwellers is right on Newbury Street.
Finale offers a whole range of different deserts but ice cream, mousse, and gelato are all a part of their menu and it’s absolutely delicious. Located at Park Plaza, Finale, has something for everyone and is a great place to meet up with friends for a relaxing sit-down desert. They also serve meals so if you want to make an entire evening out of it, Finale is the place to go.
Caffé Vittoria seems to be a gelato fan favorite according to Yelp! Gelato is a refreshing change from the typical ice cream, loaded up with sugar it’s nice and sweet and has just as many flavors as your favorite ice cream parlor. Gelati offers all the classics like chocolate and cookie dough or butter pecan and also provides a fruitier option with sorbetto flavors like mango, raspberry, and lemon. Located in the North End this cafe is definitely worth making a stop.
Picco will satisfy your every need for ice cream. Also doubling as a legitimate restaurant Picco has some unique ice cream flavors including ginger and passionfruit. And these aren’t just you average ice cream cones, you have sundaes, frappes, samplers, and a variety of toppings to choose from at this South End restaurant.
Jennifer’s Frosty is an ice cream truck but it doesn’t drive around, it’s always parked on the corner of Boylston and Arlington right along the Boston Public Gardens, for over twenty years. You can grab a cone of soft serve and stroll through the gardens and Commons or head down Charles Street. Right in the center of town you can make a quick pick up and enjoy Boston.
Of course you have plenty of more options like your traditional Ben and Jerry’s, Emack and Bolios, J.P. Licks, and Pink Berry amongst others. So enjoy all the sunshine and frozen deserts for the next few months!
