Atlantic Beach, FL 32233
What a great find tonight. After dinner my companion wanted to come to A & J’s for some ice cream. Strange it was the coldest day here so far, a frigid 50, and he wanted ice cream. Why not, I have learned to trust all his food choices. This spot is a true hole in the wall, set in the corner of a strip mall on Atlantic Beach , I honestly don’t know how anyone finds this place, but once you find it not only do you return, you take your friends with you. I know for sure I will.
A strange combination of desserts, ice cream, frozen yogurt and BBQ are offered. Yep BBQ and a nice menu selection at that. Waffle cones are made on site, as well as the ice cream and sorbet, from the freshest seasonal ingredients.
If my information is correct the owner, Josh was involved in Physics Research and some how translated that knowledge it to making ice cream. The churn pictured above has been motorized now, and is used each day to make the most wonderful concoctions you can imagine.
As well as the sugar or waffle cone, you may want to sample the shakes, floats or the 10 flavor flight served with a flat waffle or the mini puddle jumper of 5 flavors a mini waffle platter.
My friend chose the Mini 5
I was going to go with the healthy Kombucha sorbet, but I made the wonderful discovery of the Salted Caramel and all thoughts of healthy left my head. This was the ice cream of my child hood I was in heaven.
Once the holidays are over, I intend to return in order to test out the BBQ or one of the Rice Bowls.
Don’t miss an opportunity to try this spot. I am big on supporting small local business owners in their quest to preserve and serve the community.
