New Sunset Harbour ice cream parlor planning soft opening Sunday

IMG_2247Emack & Bolio’s, the high-end ice cream joint with roots in New England, plans a soft opening in the Shops at Sunset Harbour on Sunday.

IMG_2248The owner, Mohamed Elgayar, and his family were getting everything ready at the 1915 Purdy Ave. storefront Saturday afternoon, offering visitors tastes of such deliciousness as Grasshopper Pie (creme de menthe with chocolate chips and oreos), Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup and a fabulous Peach.

Elgayar said folks in the neighborhood could stop by Sunday afternoon while he trains his counter staff, and more goodies could be in store.

Emack & Bolio’s started in Boston in 1975 and now has stores in four states, with three locations in Florida — on Vanderbilt Beach near Naples, at Hawks Cay Resort in the Keys, and at Hard Rock in Orlando.

It’s the first Shops at Sunset Harbour storefront to open that offers something to eat. Sunset Clothing Co. was the first store to open, in November. Still to come: Panther Coffee, Ice Box, Tequitzlan Mexican Restaurant and Tequila Bar, Fratelli In Toufala, True Loaf Bakery and more.
