Azucar Ice Cream Company

1503 SW 8th St. Miami, FL 33135 | Little Havana | 305-381-0369

Location Description:

When walking the streets of Calle Ocho in the sweltering summer sun, nothing cools off an afternoon like a scoop of ice cream. So pop into Azucar Ice Cream Company, where you'll find flavors that could only be dreamed up in Miami. From mamey and passionfruit to plátano maduro (sweet plantain), and Abuela María (vanilla ice cream with ripe guava, chunks of cream cheese, and crushed Maria cookies) ($3.50 small, $4.50 large) -- they're like a rich, creamy cupful of the 305.
