Where to Enjoy the Best Scoops of Ice Cream in Dallas

The Dallas heat ramps up this time of year, and you may find yourself craving cool treats as a way to combat the heat index. Luckily, Dallas offers quite a few ice cream shops. For innovate flavors and interesting takes on classics, try these locations around town:

Wonders Ice Cream

Wonders recently brought its rolled ice cream to Uptown. The shop boasts that it’s the “Hibachi of Ice Cream,” and the flavors are made to order with all-natural ingredients. The process begins by blending the magic base with unique flavorings. The mixture is chilled at -20 before it is spread onto a frozen platform and scraped into thin rolls. There are twenty different flavors including strawberry chocolate, pina colada, and caramel caramel.

Hypnotic Emporium 

Step back in time at the Hypnotic Emporium. It features an old school soda fountain vibe and comes complete with chalkboard menus and the smells of waffle cones. The Hypnotic Emporium strives to be the place where memories are made. The shop is perfect for date night or a leisurely evening with friends. There are dozens of flavors including caramel cheesecake, campfire s’mores, and peanut butter fudge. 

Baldo’s Ice Cream & Coffee

Baldo’s began in 2017 after three SMU graduates decided to bring quality handmade ice cream to Dallas. It offers a coffee shop atmosphere, and the unique flavors spark conversations while leaving guests wondering what’s next. The ice cream is made in small batches using a few simple ingredients. Choices include prickly pear jalapeno, dill pickle sorbet, and strawberry milk. Not sure what to order? Try the three mini cone flight.
