You probably have never heard of berries, barbecue and baked beans ice cream or a scoop with delicious critters. Once this shop lands in Miami, you are in for a foodie adventure.
Miami's menu will rotate monthly and will feature handmade classic and seasonal flavors based on Miami chefs and artisans such as Panther Coffee and Wynwood Brewing. One of the flavors to be featured in the Wynwood location will be Panther Coffee & Chocolate Tres Leches ice cream.
