Today is National Ice Cream Day, but let’s be honest, every day this hot summer is ice cream day, am I right? However, since today is an official ice cream day, I’ve picked my fave spots in Orlando to enjoy this creamy treat.

Say goodbye to Lime and hello to Rubio’s Restaurants, as the west coast Mexican chain acquires eight restaurant locations in Florida currently operated as Lime Fresh Mexican Grills. In the Central Florida area, there is only one, located in Winter Park Village (the Dr. Phillips one has already closed). Following closing of the transaction, Rubio’s will convert these to new Rubio’s Coastal Grill® restaurants, marking the California-based company’s first expansion to the East Coast.
Jeremiah’s Italian Ice, a fun shaved ice/ soft serve ice cream place, recently opened a location in Hunter’s Creek, so we went to check it out.
It is a walk up, order at the window type of place. We first tried it on their Grand Opening. It was very loud, and very busy. We had to try the gelato as that is what they are known for. Their version of gelato is a combination of the shave ice and soft serve, and it’s served in a cup. There are so many possible combinations, it’s hard to decide. Some options are fruity flavored and very refreshing on hot days here in Central Florida. Other options are very indulgent and good for when you are in the mood.
