    Flamingo Crossing: Delicious Homemade Ice Cream

    by FatesWarn Written May 19, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located on the quiet end of Duval, Flamingo Crossing offers homemade ice-cream and sorbets in a variety of unique flavors (Cuban Coffee, Raspberry Capuccino).
    They also offer homemade waffle cones, which they pack well, so you're not left with an empty cone bottom when you get there.
    They're open until 11pm, so they are available to satisfy your late-night cravings.

    Favorite Dish: The Rum Raisin ice cream was fantastic. It had a perfect rum flavor to it, and had a generous amount of raisins. I had mine in a waffle cone, which was a perfect addition to the ice cream. I've also had the key lime ice cream (this flavor is also offered as a sherbert), which is very refreshing in the Key West heat.

    Flamingo Crossing Homemade Ice Cream: Ice cream, Ice cream.....

    Cool off at Flamingo Crossing

    On a hot afternoon strolling Duval Street, comes a time that one needs some refreshment. And if one is in a party of all adults, there are no shortage of little watering holes that can fill you need for cooling off. But, what if you have a younger family member in tow? Well then, forget about that beer boy and find some ice cream. And for ice cream in old Key West, you can't do much better than the Flamingo Crossing Ice Cream stand.

    Apparently, Flamingo has been getting more and more positive comments and remarks in the local media, and part of the reason has to be that their treats are 100% homemade, made right on the premises. Rich and creamy and covered with all sorts of flavors, Flamingo Crossing hits the spot when someone screams ice cream.

    Among the many flavors are
    Sour Sop (not sure what this is, but it's highly recommended locally)
    Mango
    Cuban Coffee
    Rum Runner, flavored with real rum
    Key Lime (of course!)
    Passion Fruit
    English Custard
    French Chocolate
    Tahitian Vanilla
    Ginger
    Raspberry Capuccino
    Banana
    Coconut

    Favorite Dish: Can you guess?
    I C E C R E A M

    Get one of those terrific waffle cones, also homemade. I had a tropical combo of banana and coconut. Very good.

    One note, I'd eat some of it in the store before venturing out onto the sweltering sidewalks. This delicately crafted ice cream doesn't withstand the local heat well before returning to a more temperate state of matter, ie melted.

    Note, the Flamingo Crossing is open daily until 11:00 pm. I think it opens whenever the worker bees crawl out of bed and open up shop. 'Tis common in Key West.
