Buena Park’s Best Sweet Summer Treats

When the summer heat kicks in, it’s the perfect time to indulge in one of Buena Park’s most popular and tasty summer treats. From uniquely-flavored ice cream to fruity desserts that are big enough for sharing, Buena Park has tons of options when you need to satisfy that sweet tooth and cool off. Which one will be your favorite?

Cup with Honeymee logo with ice cream and honeycomb at Honeymme in Buena Park, CA

True Milk Honeymee Sundae from Honeymee—When you are looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, Honeymee is the spot. Honeymee’s true milk ice cream is made with fresh California milk from a family-owned, Kosher-certified dairy farm and has been named one of the “Best Spots for Soft Serve and Custard” by Zagat. We recommend going for the “Honeymee” that has true milk ice cream topped with locally-harvested honey and a 100% natural honeycomb chip.

Watermelon Okbingsul from Okbingsul—Located in The Source OC, Okbingsul brings Korean-style shaved ice to those craving a cool treat after a day of excitement. Go for the watermelon okbingsul, which comes with shaved ice topped with watermelon balls, condensed milk, and ice cream.
Chocolate cake shake at Portillo's in Buena Park, CA

Chocolate Cake Shake from Portillo’s—Yes, you read that right. This Chicago-style hot dog joint offers perhaps the best dessert combination ever, the chocolate cake shake. Vanilla ice cream is blended with Portillo’s decadent chocolate cake for a thick shake combination that will take you back to your childhood.

Churro Sundae from Churroholic—Crispy fried churro pieces are the base of the churro sundae at Churroholic and it gets even better from there. They take two original churros, cut them into bite-sized pieces, and top them with ice cream, whipped cream, caramel, chocolate, coconut flakes, and toffee. Bring a friend as there’s more than enough to share.
Macaron characters and macaron ice cream at Sweet Box in Buena Park, CA

Ice Cream Macaron Sandwich from Sweet Box—In addition to dragon’s beard candy and oh-so-adorable character macarons, Sweet Box offers the ultimate treat on a hot day—the ice cream macaron sandwich. Choose vanilla or green tea ice cream sandwiched between two crunchy-thin macaron cookies and you’ll never go back to traditional macarons again.

Moneybag Root Beer Float from Rock and Brews—The brainchild of Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of KISS, Rock and Brews in Buena Park offers quality American comfort food in a rock & roll themed environment. Their root bear float features vanilla ice cream and their trademarked Gene Simmons Moneybag Root Beer.
Cookie sandwhich with Boysenberry ice cream at Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, CA

Boysenberry Cookiewich from Knott’s Berry Farm—Head to the Ghost Town Ice Cream Shop in Knott’s Berry Farm for an ice cream sandwich like no other—the boysenberry cookiewich. This two-handed treat is two chocolate chip cookies filled with boysenberry ice cream and rolled in a hefty dose of chocolate chips. It’s the perfect way to indulge in the iconic berry that was invented in Buena Park.

Fresh Strawberry Cheesecake from Porto’s Bakery & Cafe—It’s no surprise that Yelp’s #1 Restaurant in the Country knows how to do dessert. An especially refreshing option is Porto's strawberry cheesecake that tops a graham cracker crust with creamy cheesecake that’s loaded with fresh strawberries and a strawberry glaze. Talk about a bite of summer!
Fruit tart with cream and fruit at Paris Baguette

Fruit Tarts from Paris Baguette—Flaky pastry topped with the perfect amount of cream and the season’s freshest fruits make the fruit tart an excellent option from Paris Baguette. You’ll find the pastry case filled with many different fruit tart options with favorites including the pineapple fruit tart and the black cherry fruit tart. There are even ones that are large enough to share (if you’re feeling generous.)

Dragon’s Breath from Chocolate Chair—This spot tops the “most unique” list as its signature dragon’s breath dessert is definitely something you need to experience. Fruity cereal balls dunked in liquid nitrogen make the eater appear as if smoke is coming out of their nose and mouth like a dragon. Chocolate Chair also offers tons of flavors of ice cream and shaved ice if you aren’t feeling quite so adventurous.
