Bruster's Ice Cream

We rarely drive by Bruster’s on any evening when there isn’t a line of people waiting to get a cone, bowl, or banana split of Bruster’s freshly made ice cream.  They carry a huge variety of flavors, and also serve frozen yogurt, sorbet, milkshakes, cakes, pies, and more. As an added bonus, they give free baby cones to children under 40″ and free ‘doggie sundaes’ to your furry friend, so bring the entire family for some Bruster’s fun! Located on 540A down the road from Christina Park.

Cold Stone Creamery

If you’ve never had a “Coldstone Creation,” do yourself a favor and get one this summer! You’ll be overwhelmed by the choices at Coldstone – freshly made ice cream flavors, mix-ins, sundaes, bowls, cones – but have no fear, Coldstone has plenty of Signature Creations for you to pick one and then watch the magic happen.

In addition to sweet treats, they also serve delicious options for breakfast, lunch, or just a cup of coffee. We speak from experience when we say that visiting for lunch is a good excuse to also sneak in a cookie or other too-good-to-resist dessert! The Cookie Jar also makes custom cookies, cakes, and other specialty items. Located on Main Street in Bartow.
