Rita's Italian Ice
Rita’s is a chain in North Beach that serves frozen custard, which has a similar consistency to soft serve but with more fat. So it’s slightly denser and not as fluffy—but quite a bit creamier. If you’ve got a soft serve itch, Rita’s is like a back scratcher. It also has (as its name suggests) Italian ice with rotating flavors like Swedish Fish, so it’s a good stop on a hot Miami day. There are two locations on Collins Avenue, one in Surfside, and another in Hialeah.
