It’s getting hot in here, so it’s time to grab some frozen treats in the Queen City of the South. Did you know that the highest temperature in Cebu was recorded in 1981? The temperature then reached 37 ºC. While this may not be enough to boil an egg, it does make life in the city somewhat uncomfortable.

Fortunately, there are restaurants in the city where Cebuanos can cool off in more ways than one. All they need to do to escape the sweltering heat is to drop by the following places for frozen treats.
