Macarons & Ice Cream, oh my!
Second Street in Long Beach, California is home to many unique restaurants, shops, and dessert parlors. One of the newer and most loved ones is “Snow Monster,” the place where you can get a Macaron sandwich, or a milk tea with a cloud of pink bubble gum around it.
The brick walls of this dessert shop gives it a fresh vibe, while still staying within the hipster vein. The menu also boasts cookie sandwich’s, shaved ice, and drinks ranging from honey milk tea to strawberry lemonade.
For my macaron sandwich I chose cookie’s and cream macarons with brown butter ice cream. This $5.00 deal is one that you will continuously be thinking about as soon as you’re finished.
There is something fun and unique about the dessert and the unique menu that Snow Monster offers that makes it an exciting place to visit. It is the perfect excuse to visit Belmont Shore and make a day trip out of it, or simply taking an evening drive for the ice cream.
