Hello Honey has been serving up small-batch ice cream in the heart of downtown since 2012. Now, it has expanded into East Walnut Hills (and is moving the downtown destination to a new storefront coming soon). The East Walnut Hills Hello Honey offers indoor seating and, obviously, their same delicious ice cream. The cult-favorite dessert is crafted with fresh ingredients and options change based on the seasons, with flavors including banana honeycomb, Thai iced tea and brown butter caramel. It’s a necessity to top your scoop with one of the shop’s homemade, toasted marshmallows. And while ice cream is great and all, this shop also offers a larger selection of Hello Honey baked goods. That includes a rotating selection of roll cakes, cheesecakes, brownies and cookies with fun flavor profiles. Think chocolate peanut butter and jelly roll cake or ube (sweet purple yam) cheesecake. Those same creative flavor combos are what sets Hello Honey’s ice cream apart from the rest of the pack. hellohoneyicecream.com.
