Guests can keep cool by hugging an oscillating fan or by imbibing an order of italian ice ($1.89+) blended with fresh fruit in flavors such as cherry, lemonade, and Florida orange. Expert ice artists craft old-fashioned frozen custard with rich cream ($2.49+) or couple custard with ice in the shop's chilly, well-churned Misto shakes ($3.79+). A rotating selection of gelati flavors ($3.69+) rounds out the menu, offering guests sweet and authentic Italian tastes that rival Michelangelo’s David Drinks Sugar Cubes.
