New places to treat yourself as temperatures rise
With temperatures rising in Jacksonville, ice cream and dessert shops are popping up to keep Jax supplied with cool treats. Here are a few of the brand spanking new options:
After 74 years as a Murray Hill fave, Dreamette has expanded to San Marco on Hendricks Avenue. Other Dreamette locations are expected to open soon in Springfield and St. Johns County.
Just a couple minutes’ drive down Hendricks, a Milkster Nitrogen Creamery is about to open in the former location of Foliahōm plant store (which has moved next to Dreamette).
The Yard Milkshake Bar, a franchise that appeared on “Shark Tank,” opens its Jacksonville franchise this Friday at Town Center with a special Jacksonville menu. (See the full story at the Jacksonville Daily Record.)
Parlor Doughnuts, an Indiana-based craft doughnut and coffee stop, comes to Jacksonville this week in the former Twisted Compass Brewing Co. location in Fruit Cove. Tomorrow’s the soft opening.
- The Aloha Waffle Bar serves ice cream-filled bubble waffles, a popular Hawaiian treat, along with Kona coffee, specialty teas and more. It opened recently on Jacksonville's Northside.
