From an inconspicuous, sky-blue stand in Leon's parking lot, Ice Painters' dessert aficionados cool down piping-hot palates with frosty snow cones, ice cream, and root-beer floats. Ice Painters' more than 50 flavors of signature snow cones unfurl across a lengthy menu displayed on the stand's outer wall, and each syrupy delight surprises spoons with a dollop of ice cream at the bottom of its cup. The mounds of shaved ice—which range from mini to large—derive from large blocks of ice, rather than commonly used ice cubes or snowman tears. While taking in fresh breezes, guests can slurp down their tasty desserts from the nearby picnic tables.
