Located in Dania Beach, FL, Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlor & Restaurant is a must for anyone seeking a very unique experience in the South Florida area. The Zagat rated ice cream shop has been featured on Good Morning America and the Food Network… in other words it is highly regarded. The huge selection of ice cream flavors and the combination of toppings available are sure to leave everyone satisfied.
However, I would say this establishment is much more than just about their food. It’s not the best ice cream I have ever had, but it definitely offers a unique experience. As you approach the shopping center, you are encountered by a massive line wrapping around a carnivalesque store front; it’s as if you had travelled back to the 1950’s. Once you place your order at the pick-up window, you can go ahead and sit in their enclosed patio area or simply walk around and take in the atmosphere as you enjoy your ice cream. They also have an inside seating area which offers burgers, salads, wraps, and other similar foods. For a full-menu, click here.
As far as gluten-free options are concerned, most of their flavors are safe. Stay away from their “Oreo cookie” flavor and any other flavors that might contain cookies or pretzels. Use your best judgement as far as what toppings to use and not use. Their whipped cream is very rich and made on site.

In short, if you’re looking for an interesting and unique night out on the weekend and don’t mind the drive from Miami, I definitely recommend making the trip.
