Dessert

Brain freezes are a necessary evil at Mario’s Italian Lemonade in University Village, the local favorite for Italian shaved ice treats. Armed with both a spoon and a straw, the tropical fruit-flavored Italian ices at Mario’s will make a frozen warrior of you, as long as you don’t leave your cash at home (no cards are accepted here). With flavors like cantaloupe, lime, piña colada, and watermelon, it’s fitting that Mario’s is only open during the summer months.
