Uncle Louie G's Italian Ices
Hollywood, FL 33020
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
Italian ices, milk shakes, smoothies, and old-fashioned egg creams are on the menu of this store chain, imported from Brooklyn. It's near the courthouse, so lawyers, jurors, and police types drop in for a scoop of something or just to cool down after hot cases. Late-night clubbers drop in on the weekends. Unusual flavors inspire downtown shoppers to queue up on hot days -- the downtown trolley stops nearby. A chocolate-covered jellyring ice or strawberry cheesecake ice cream are some of the more exotic flavors served in cake or waffle cones or in paper cups. Don't miss the waffle ice cream sandwich -- two waffles hot out of the waffle iron with a scoop of your choice in between. Just try to eat it before it melts. It's wallet- and kid-friendly.
