After weeks of Hurricane Irma chaos, many of us could use something cold and sweet. How does an ice-cream sandwich sound?

From Middle Eastern-inspired gourmet ice-cream sandwiches in South Beach to waffle, doughnut, and Italian varieties in Aventura, Wynwood, and Brickell, here are the five best in Miami.

1. Wynwood Parlor. Mix and match nearly a dozen cookies, such as chocolate chip, red velvet, s'mores, and rocky road, with ice-cream flavors like vanilla, cookies 'n' cream, and salty caramel. Toppings — or as Wynwood Parlor likes to say, "roll-ons" — combine everything from almond chips to Fruity Pebbles. There's cookie crumble too, made from the shop's handmade treats. The concept offers a selection of signature sandwiches too, including the Cookie Monster, which takes a s'mores cookie, tops it with cookies 'n' cream ice cream, and rolls it in Oreo cookie crumble, and the breakfast sandwich, which combines an oatmeal-raisin cookie with coffee ice cream. Sandwiches cost $5.50 and are sold at various locations across Miami. For more information, visit wynwoodparlor.com.

2. Mr. Kream. Inside this neon-lit ice-cream lounge, choose from 50 to 60 rotating flavors, each named for and inspired by hip-hop culture. Varieties include Snoopstachio (pistachio), Salt & Peppa (salty caramel with roasted nuts), and LL Cool Crunch (peanut butter with pretzels and chocolate). Opt for your scoop to be stuffed between two cookies or waffles ($9 to $10). Servings are on the larger side and can easily be shared between two or three diners. 2400 N.
