Where to Grab Some Ice Cream Around The Sagamore

As the heat creeps up, there aren’t many things that The Sagamore residents would rather do to catch a cool break than to grab an ice cream cone right outside their home.

Luckily for you, there are tons of stellar ice cream shops right around the corner that will offer you a little summer indulgence. You don’t have to wander far for a sweet treat in the summer heat.

Amorino Gelato, located at 414 Amsterdam Ave., creates high-quality gelato with no artificial colors or flavors and uses organic and natural products. Their gelato and sorbets are churned every day in typical Italian fashion. Some of their popular flavors include organic Sicilian citrus, banana del Brasile, caramello al Burro Salato and cioccolato amorino.

Emack and Bolio’s, located at 289 Amsterdam Ave., serves premium ice cream, yogurt, smoothies, milkshakes, bubble teas and hand-dipped chocolates to those with a sweet tooth. The parlor, which started out as a place where musicians could satisfy their munchies after gigs in Boston, has evolved into an ice cream legend that produces creative flavors.

Sugar and Plumm, located at 377 Amsterdam Ave., crafts all of their ice cream and sorbets in small batches using quality milk, cream, fruits and chocolate to give them the best flavor. The menu features both classic favorites as well as seasonal flavors, all of which are created in a two-day process allowing the flavors to meld and intensify before they are spun and swirled with mix-ins to create a velvety creamy treat.
