When you're walking Calle Ocho in the sweltering sun, nothing cools off an afternoon like a frosty treat. Pop into Azucar Ice Cream Company, where you'll find flavors that could only be dreamed up in Miami. Serving inventive varieties ranging from mamey and passionfruit to plátanos maduros (sweet plantain) and Abuela Maria (vanilla ice cream with ripe guava, chunks of cream cheese, and crushed Maria cookies), Azucar is like a rich, creamy cupful of the 305. Insider tip: Owned by local Cuban-American Suzy Batlle, Azucar was founded after the 2008 financial crisis, when Batlle's career in banking took a turn. She turned a less than sweet situation into making ice cream, a family tradition passed down from her grandmother in Cuba. Azucar has been celebrating success on Calle Ocho since its inception in July 2011 and also opened a location in Dallas.
