For all those Bostonians who braved the heat last week, you know what I mean when I say this summer is going to be deadly. With rising temperatures there’s no better way to cool off than a scoop of ice cream. Here are SPOT’s top picks for the best independently owned ice cream shops because we all know mom and pop does it best.
Located on Tremont St., FoMu sources plant based ingredients to create some of the best non dairy ice cream in Boston. Non vegans try to taste a difference. I dare you.
Just steps down Newbury, this homemade gelato shop will have you wiping tears from your eyes. With signature flower shaped scoops, you’ll be walking out with your style in tact.
Gracie’s Ice Cream
Located a little far from the city in Somerville, we promise the travel is worth it. The flavors and toppings are unique a the cones are all blow-torch toasted to add that extra flair!
The perfect shop to take your kids to. This friendly ice cream parlor also serves comfort food and an array of candy.
So while this week is scattered with rainy days, the sun will be out soon! And you’ll have the perfect excuse to treat yourself.
