Easily recognizable by its lavender-colored façade, Christina’s is a popular spot for homemade ice cream. Located in Inman Square between Harvard and MIT, the small shop is decorated with exposed brick, antique church pews, and displays of local art. The menu includes a rotating selection of at least 50 gourmet flavors, many of which incorporate ingredients from a neighboring spice shop. Options may include adzuki bean, carrot cake, burnt sugar, and herbal chai, as well as seasonal flavors like eggnog and fresh rose. Christina’s also sells a variety of sorbets in flavors like apricot, champagne, and ginger lime.
