Two Florida-based eateries are putting down stakes in St. Johns County.

Huey Magoo's, started by two partners from the Sunshine State in 2004, has locations across Florida and has also moved into several other southeastern states.

The latest restaurant is planned for 2490 U.S. 1 S. in St. Augustine. County officials issued a building permit Jan. 14.

Dreamette, a popular ice cream shop that began as a single walk-up stand in Jacksonville more than 70 years ago, is expanding to 3735 Longleaf Pine Parkway in St. Johns.

It will be the second location to open in St. Johns County. Last June, Dreamette moved into 119 Bartram Oaks Walk at Race Track Road, also in St. Johns.

Open since 1948, the original Dreamette at 3646 Post. St. in Murray Hill has been a Jacksonville tradition for 74 years.

The newest shop will serve up classic sweet treats that have been the hallmark of Dreamette, including hand-dipped cones, milkshakes, sundaes and more.

Soft serve is available in chocolate, strawberry, vanilla or a ripple swirl of two. Many customers favor the shop's hard-shell flavor coatings such as chocolate, peanut butter, cherry, orange, toasted coconut and cake batter.

Milkshakes are available in 39 flavors and sundaes come in 30 flavors.
