The Dolly Llama in Winter Garden

by Holley Long

Is your sweet tooth calling? Indulge it with the winning combo of ice cream and waffles at the Dolly Llama, now open in Winter Garden Village.

What is it?

Founded by real estate leader Eric Shomof and European restaurateur and entrepreneur Samuel Baroux, the Dolly Llama takes its name from a real llama that lives on a farm in France and brings joy to everyone she meets, according to the company website. The waffle and ice cream shop endeavors to bring that same joy into the lives of all who come through its doors. 

Waffles take up a good portion of the menu, but the shop also has an abundance of different flavors of ice cream to check out. Get a scoop on a waffle—liege or bubble—or have it in a cup with toppings galore. Also on the menu are shakes, waffle ice cream sandwiches, and boxes of mini liege waffles (so you can take home a little snack for later). 

The Grand Opening 

The Dolly Llama hosted its grand opening in Winter Garden on January 7, and the day saw a line that stretched around the strip of stores housing the waffle and ice cream shop. I waited nearly an hour and a half before finally stepping past the balloon-decked storefront and into the shop. It was well worth the wait. 

More balloons floated to the ceiling, and the walls featured quirky designs that make for great photo ops. Aside from waffles and ice cream—both of which were delicious—the shop had merchandise to sell. Grand opening attendees were even given some of the merch, including pins, key chains, and a packaged Signature OG Liege Waffle.

Winter Garden Village 

The Dolly Llama is located in Winter Garden Village, an outdoor shopping and dining destination, so once you’ve enjoyed your sweet treat you can pop into stores like Nike, Ulta, and HomeGoods—no matter your interests, there’s plenty at Winter Garden Village to occupy a full day. 



While Orlando is well known for its theme parks, its unique eateries shine bright as well. So next time you’re in need of a waffle and ice cream fix (and maybe a little shopping spree) head to the Dolly Llama at Winter Garden Village!
