Decked in bright hues of the sun, Melt Ice Creams is a nice little dessert corner on Rosedale Avenue. Owned and operated by Kari Crowe, the Southside sweet spot serves delicious, homemade ice creams that will have you coming back for more. This is clearly not your run-of-the-mill ice cream franchise, there are less than ten flavors - the focus is more on quality than quantity - and Melt manages that very well indeed. Most popular choices here include Cup of Texas, a coffee flavored one and Sweet Bees, a honey-focused ice cream. Affordable prices, fresh, delightful flavors and the great little shop keeps bringing in the locals by droves at Melt.
