Macarons and ice cream are match made in heaven at Dainties Macaron. Macaron sandwiches are served up in Korean-style flavours like injeolmi and jasmine tea.

Cafe and ice cream parlour Old Town Bodega is bringing this neighbourhood gigantic ice cream sandwiches. Ice cream is scooped between two sticky, sugary toffee coffee chocolate cookies.
