In a city that enjoys summer-like temperatures for most of the year, you never need an excuse to grab a tasty frozen treat. Gelato has been taking the local dessert scene by storm. It’s denser than typical ice cream, more intensely-flavored and often swirled or topped with crave-worthy add-ins. Here are six great places serving gelato in North Miami Beach.
