Dining Guide for Families in Orange County

Phineas Q. Butterfat’s Ice Cream Parlor at Universal Studios Hollywood

We dined as a guest of Universal


Where is the coolest place to grab a refreshing ice cream in the town of Springfield from The Simpsons? Phineas Q. Butterfat’s of course. Now, your family can experience the sweet treat that Bart and Lisa love at Universal Studios Hollywood.


While our family was visiting the theme park this summer, we cooled down from the summer heat with a refreshing ice cream treat at Phineas Q. Butterfat’s Ice Cream Parlor. The ice cream cones are unique by offering guests to add their own “flavor swirl.” First guests pick their favorite soft serve ice cream flavor and then add their favorite flavor swirl. The flavor swirls include strawberry, banana ripple, root beer, watermelon, tropical orange, black cherry, cotton candy or chocolate swirl.


My son and I had our cones swirled with a root beer flavoring that tasted just like a root beer float. It was unique, delicious and refreshing to enjoy on a hot summer afternoon. While my son and I opted to have the flavor swirl, my daughter added oreo topping to her cone to make a cookies & cream flavored treat.


The one treat that we are saving to enjoy the next time we visit Universal Studios Hollywood is the Brain Freezin’ D’oh-Nut Sundae. This dessert features chocolate or vanilla soft serve on a sprinkled pink frosted donut with your choice of topping – oh my!


Phineas Q. Butterfat’s Ice Cream Parlor is located right across from Krusty Burger inside of Universal Studios Hollywood.
