Dara’s Ice Cream

The famous Dara’s ice cream is now open at the Waterway, bringing joy and happiness with exquisite ice cream and homemade cookies. Flavors are all natural and a lot of them are seasonal. You cannot miss the banana madness, caramelized almonds, honeycomb, milk and cake or the vegan options of mango or raspberry. If you haven’t had enough sweetness, go for your scoops on the chocolate waffle cone.

Opens daily from 5 pm to 2 am
