Located in a small nondescript shopping plaza on SW 37th (Douglas Rd), a few blocks south of Miracle Mile, you may miss it if you didn't know about it. It's not usually open until the early afternoon. And there's not much parking available. But locals continue to return for the best tropical ice creams around in a funky little setting.
The tropical flavors are your best bets, but there's also a collection of more "standard" flavors: chocolate and rocky road type stuff. They're good. But stick to the tropical flavors. That's where the flavor punch is: mango, coconut/pineapple, guayaba and many other options. These are not sherbets. These are full-on creamy ice creams made with fruit pulp. The mamey may be the best I've ever had, tasted like eating a cold-frozen creamy fresh mamey.
Order your ice cream to stay and you'll be served in old-fashioned metal cups or boats. Somehow, that makes the ice cream taste better.
Instead of sizes or scoops, you order famous Cuban singers: the Gloria Stefan, the Celia Cruz... Order a double scoop combination, and taste two different flavors. Prices are more than reasonable.
There are fancier ice cream places in the area, with more seating and parking. But none with more flavor and character.
