Remember the excitement you used to feel as a kid when you got to take a special trip to the ice cream parlor, where it seemed like the biggest decision you would ever have to make was what flavors and toppings to choose for your sweet treat? At Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlor & Restaurant, a historic sweet spot in Dania Beach, you can relive that feeling while introducing your own kids to this delicious conundrum. What are you all in the mood for today? Classic chocolate? Sweet strawberry? Tasty tropical coconut? With more than 40 flavors and daily specials to choose from, you’ll have a deliciously tough time deciding on just one.
If you simply can’t make up your mind, order the Kitchen Sink, which is literally served in a kitchen sink and is filled with enough ice cream to serve a minimum of 4 people. If that’s a bit too ambitious for you, there’s a hot fudge sundae or banana split calling your name. Can you hear it? Needless to say, this parlor is often overflowing with customers, especially on sweltering summer days, and wait times for tables can be lengthy. Luckily, there is a curbside takeout window where you can quickly order your treats and enjoy them outdoors on a warm Florida evening.
