Ice Cream is having a moment! While cupcakeries are close at an astonishing clip, Los Angeles is discovering cool treats at an unprecedented rate. It’s about time – our weather calls out for icy goodness year round. Here are our favorite brand new places to get something spectacularly cold in these dog days of summer.  A couple are so new they’re still putting on the finishing touches to open ASAP, so get ready to be the first to try them.

Churro Borough

Available at events and pop-ups across the city, Sylvia Yoo's sammies at her aptly named Churro Burough are catching national attention. One look at her creations tells you why, and you'll rejoice that only Angelenos can scarf these churro ice cream sandwiches. With flavors like Horchata, Mexican Hot Chocolate, Vanilla Custard and Spanish Coffee - and seasonal treats like Orange Creamsicle and Caramel Apple Pie – sandwiched between crispy-chewy, cinnamony-sugary shells, this is a treat worth following online to see where and when the next pop-up or event will take place.
