Where to Get Your Ice Cream Fix on St. Croix, USVI

Whether you are looking for a plain scoop of ice cream, a scratch-made ice cream sandwich, a frozen treat low in sugar, or even vegan ice cream, St. Croix has it all! Even better, enjoy delicious tropical and seasonal flavors you won’t find anywhere else. Don’t worry, you can still get vanilla and chocolate ice cream with sprinkles, but you could also choose soursop, mango, coconut, or gooseberry. Here’s the scoop on some of our favorite stops for ice cream…

Jaccar Ice Cream & Desserts
Get your ice cream fix at this charming little shop where the Hibbert family lovingly makes all of their ice cream on-site, using predominately locally-sourced ingredients. Jaccar offers ice cream by the scoop or container (ask about their Sustainable Scoops program), sundaes, low-sugar sorbet, vegan ice cream, popsicles, scratch-made ice cream sandwiches, and ice cream cakes. They have an ice cream cart to cater events, so consider them make ice cream for your next party!

Love-Croix Helados & Eatz
What started as a popular ice cream cart at local events has grown into a full on food truck, offering all kinds of delicious eats. But, just because they’ve expanded doesn’t mean the helados (ice cream) has suffered. Stop by the lovely little shaded area Love-Croix owners Bulley and Marilyn Navarro have created in Peter’s Rest for delicious, homemade helados in local flavors like mango and coconut. Great vibes and great ice cream!

Baked Cafe
With a passion for offering scratch made vegan and gluten-free foods made with fresh, local ingredients, Baked Cafe owner Alex Morris offers a flavor or two of homemade ice cream. Sit and enjoy the ambiance of the stunning courtyard cafe while you enjoy a scoop of refreshing ice cream in flavors like matcha or mint chocolate chip made with peppermint essential oil. Vegan options are often available!

Rainbow Helados (Love-Croix) | Matcha Ice Cream (Baked Cafe) | Ice Dream Sandwiches (Seahorse Rep.)

Seahorse Republic

Stop by this funky little food truck located in Gallows Bay for PB & B (Peanut Butter and Banana) Ice Dream Sandwiches. The ‘dream’ part of their ‘ice dream sandwiches’ is, like everything else served at Seahorse, their desserts are vegan and gluten-free! Did I mention they are also scrumptious…even if you aren’t vegan?

Shupe’s on the Boardwalk
If you are looking for a casual stop at a waterfront bar that happens to offer ice cream, Shupe’s is the place for you. Enjoy a beautiful view of Christiansted Harbor while you cool down with some vanilla softserve ice cream. There is something for everyone – vanilla softserve ice cream cones for the kids, and adult milkshakes with your favorite liquor for the grown ups!

Deck Bar at Rum Runners
The Deck Bar at Rum Runners is a popular local hangout because it offers cold drinks on the go, and a very simple bar menu. They also offer an unobstructed view of Christiansted Harbor, and are home to the Christiansted webcam. What you may not know is that they also offer some of the most amazing ice cream sandwiches imaginable! Cool, refreshing ice cream sandwiched between two homemade cookies, these frozen treats are almost enough for two people to share…almost.

St. Croix is an island that lives in an eternal state of summer weather…so it’s always a good time for ice cream! Remember, you can’t buy happiness, but you can buy ice cream and that’s kind of the same thing.
