Did you know July is National Ice Cream Month? In 1984 President Ronald Reagan proclaimed the warmest month of the year the perfect time to indulge a little extra and officially named July 15th National Ice Cream Day. In honor of the sweetly refreshing holiday, we’ve teamed up with Dasher & Crank to make a special ice cream to just in time to celebrate!Read More
I’ve always been a big treat yourself, YOLO kind of girl. Especially when it comes to desserts. Growing up my grandma, who I inherited my major sweet tooth from, would always remind me to save room for dessert — even if that meant not being able to finish all of my dinner.Read More
The Betsy Hotel on Ocean Drive has easily become one of my favorite South Beach escapes. This boutique family owned hotel is nothing like what you’d expect while strolling down Ocean Drive. It’s home to a cozy coffee shop that serves Panther Coffee (and plenty of pastries), LT Steak & Seafood, The Alley, and The Ventanita.Read More
The Museum of Ice Cream opened its fourth location on Miami Beach. The coveted timed tickets cost $38 and are available only online with many dates/times sold out. As ice cream lovers, some of the MIAbites team made our way to check it out. While we wouldn’t really consider it to be a museum as much as it is an Instagramable art installation, it was still entertaining and fun.
We all did the turkey thing, and many did the Black Friday shopping thing, but today is Small Business Saturday. We’re all about shopping local and supporting our community.

The MiMo community has been up-and-coming over the last few years bringing us the spots like Cake Thai, Pinch Kitchen, and the Vagabond Motel - but as I’ve preached every Saturday there’s always room for dessert to be mixed in. Johnny and Ainsley Tsokos have made our sweet dreams in MiMo come true with their happy little shop - Cream Parlor.
One step into Cream Parlor and you feel an instant sense of comfort and home. The entire place is decorated in childhood knick knacks, grandma’s china, and even a writing desk from Johnny’s school days. Johnny and Ainsley knew for over a decade that they wanted a place of their own after working in a restaurant owned by Johnny’s family for years. Ainsley was out for a run one day when she stumbled upon the vacant space. She was there at just the right time to get a tour of the space and instantly fell in love once she saw the back patio. She ran home and drew everything out. It came to her immediately - the name, menu, layout. It was their dream come true. It’s an extension of their home that we’re all welcome to visit.Read More
The following Saturday Sweets is a paid sponsored post
McDonald’s has always been a great constant when it comes to the simple, quick, and classic vanilla soft serve ice cream cone. As a kid I always loved when my grandma’s sweet tooth kicked in while we were running errands, because I knew that meant we were making a stop at McDonald’s for an ice cream cone. Fast forward nearly 3 decades of ice cream memories and it’s still just as satisfying as it was when I was a kid. Desserts have been a favorite at McDonald’s for almost 60 years. Last summer alone, McDonald’s customers enjoyed 68 million vanilla soft serve cones across the country.Read More
