58 Best Ice Cream Shops in Phoenix

“Usually very good and friendly service with delicious options, however, they have been out of raspberry sherbet for two months and now they're out of the sun sherbet. It was just seem like they could manufacture some more sherbet, but I'm sure it's due to some raspberry shortage somewhere in Guatemala and now we can't have raspberries here otherwise it's a fantastic place for ice cream.”

“I would eat the honey lavender out of a shoe.We went back for seconds on the bough melt, dangerous. Butter pecan waffle pieces filling. Excellent customer service, I found Waldo, samples gladly given, and to top it all off it's connected to an amazing little plaza. I'll be back, Yelp yeah.”

“A cute little spot to take a date. Churn can get really busy later in the day- towards dinner time. It's worth the wait in line I'd say. The peeps here are super sweet and can keep the line moving so you won't be waiting as long. Other then their sweet treats complementing our hot summer, they have some candies & small little toys you probably haven't seen since childhood! I think it's pretty rad & worth taking a look at.”

“This was my first visit to this quaint little ice cream parlor and I'll be back. The employee was friendly and helpful, the selection was large, the ice cream was delicious and, though sweet, I didn't have the usual blood sugar crash an hojr later. So, it's a place I'd like to bring a friend, next time. Enjoy!”

“Okay. This particular Dairy Queen location is beautiful. Really. It is the FIRST time I've ever decided to stay and eat INSIDE of a Dairy Queen. No stark florescent lighting! No stressed out and grumpy employees! It is easy to enjoy a meal in peace with this ambience. Good for you, Dairy Queen!PS: And double "Yay" on the Christmas decorations!”

“The creativity, presentation, and flavors got me here! This place is great. The shop itself is a fun, bright place, with a menu that's easy to understand. They have traditional flavor combinations, and they have unique ones for those who want to get outside the box a bit. And they dress up their shakes in a way that makes you want to take a photo before you dig in. The staff was friendly and obviously enjoyed working there. I admit, when we first walked in I had a little sticker shock, but I got over it quickly when I saw what the end product was. In addition, if you are looking for some intrigue, there is a "secret" entrance in the store to some escape rooms. If you book the escape room in advance, you can arrive early and eat your treat in the dining area inside the hidden room. Definitely a fun and unique place to go for a treat!”

“Got myself a double flavor dough baked with ice cream. Though it was going to be a cookie sandwich with ice cream in the middle. I got in a cup and it was warm and chewy and so sweet. While I thought the price was a little bit expensive, the price was well worth the experience and the place was so relaxing.”

“Smallcakes did my birthday cake recently! First off, they were very helpful in helping me design the cake, as well as fix it when I later decided I was not happy with the design of the cake. They worked very patiently with me to be able to get the best end result of my cake that I wanted. I got many compliments from my family and friends on this cake, as well as how delicious and well made it was. I had the best experience possible with Smallcakes, and will utilize them in the future as well as recommend them to all my friends and family.”

“I was shocked to look up this place on Trip Advisor and see no one has reviewed it here yet! Well please, let me pop the cherry on the ice cream shop. My fiancée and I walked here from our house in Coronado about a week after moving to the city. We’re ice cream people and all around dessert people (also now desert people), so it was only a matter of time until we got some sort of sweet tooth fix here. The shop, small and assuming in terms of stature, is anything but in terms of culture and flavor. Armando, the owner, walked us through the various different offerings, which extend well beyond ice cream and include various cheesecakes, brownies and fresh baked Mexican pastries delivered daily from a local bakery. We let him pick out a couple of his favorites for us (pictured is a lemon cheesecake with mango ice cream topped with homemade sweet cream as well as a Mexican sweet cake with cookies and cream) and then proceeded to enter sweet sweet sugary bliss. It was honestly awesome and made even better by Armando welcoming us to the city, offering suggestions for other places to eat and giving our dog Broccoli a pup cup of whipped cream. We’re sold and look forward to ruining our diets at this place on a regular basis over the coming years.”

“I don’t know how I missed out on these tasty morsels for so long! Had the pleasure of touring the facility today and finally tried their scrumptious brownies! Where have you been all my life! The owners are absolutely out to make happy and joyful moments by bringing these brownies, right to your doorstep! Not only do they provide an amazing product, they give back to children! A percentage of their profit goes to building playground equipment for kids!. I love a company willing to give back! What a fantastic experience! Thank you, Eileen.”

“Fantastic delicious desserts in a cup. Not sure I know what the hell is in it but I got the Tirmasu and it was incredible! Lots of chocolate chunks and syrups and I think mine had condensed milk in it. Some have ice cream- some dont- but never had this Mexican gem! Like a combination of a smoothie açaí bowl and frozen yogurt only much better! Small is $10 but it's really big and filling - they have other enticing treats that I must try - price range is $7-$12. In a nondescript strip mall on 7 th street - I live in central corridor and it's a 5 minute drive.”

“We ate at the restaurant next door and when we left, my wife noticed the Crumbl Cookies next door. I had never heard of it, but she said that everyone she worked with raved about them, so we decided to check them out. Their store was quite clean and bright. The guy there explained the different cookies they had. When we were there, they had 6 to choose from. I had a blondie, which is a regular cookie but with white chocolate chips and some pink sprinkles around the edges. It was good, but I cant say it lived up to the hype. I had a bite of my wife's chocolate chip cookie and thought it was of similar quality. I'd go there again, the cookies were good, but not spectactular.”

“I ordered the Strawberry Banana Protein smoothie, and it's really yummy, though they will ask what type of protein you want in the shake. There's two types. Sorry, I can't remember the other one, but I got the wheat protein.I also got the Kirby Berry Dream Skoop, limited time only, and it's more like a sherbet than an ice cream in a cup. It has strawberry and banana in it. It's super yummy, too. Hope this review helps everyone! Cheers for July 2023!”

I pray that God's blessings be with you.”

“I am generous giving this a 4 star because their yogurt selection gets smaller each time I come ... They have more machines out of order or for whatever reason (perhaps not enough customers???) they do not want to keep them operable. I hope they stay in business .. their cake batter yogurt is excellent and they have a large selection of toppings, and their staff is consistently helpful and friendly. However, two of the last four times I went there at night in the last three months their sign was off! Each time I wondered if they were closed. Last week there were no cars in front, sign was dark, and I could barely see inside ... nevertheless ... I parked and checked it out and, thankfully, they were open and I got the cake batter yogurt I wanted. While I was there two other sets of customers walked in ... I wondered how busy they would be if they had their sign lit. Makes no sense that they allow potential customers to think they are closed by not simply lighting their store-front sign.”

“I've visited a few times now and am always happy with my selections. Staff is always friendly and inviting. I've never stepped in to an empty space. This place constantly has customers and a lot of places to sit. I love that there's live plants sitting all around the shop.I really enjoyed the Elote Entero and the VIP. The elote is soft, juicy, and flavorful. Cooked perfectly every time. They truly care about their corn and are not shy to show off pictures of it before it's cooked. They have the best white corn hookup. The VIP is a mango sorbet with Tajín and chamoy, perfectly layered. It's so flavorful and refreshing! I'll definitely be going here often!”

“First time here came because of all the reviews....while it was good, I didn't find it to be great sad to say. They come up with cutsy names for their concoctions but I wasn't overly impressed with some and I sampled many. To me it's just a typical ice cream shop. I tried the highly talked about Thai mango and sticky rice ice cream and it was good but did not knock me off my seat good. My husband got a mixture of a chocolate (can't remember the name) and the strawberry quick, he liked it but said the chocolate ended up being so rich. The inside surprised you, if you go beyond the counter area in back there is a cute seating area with games to play and just a cool vibe, dark but cool. I rate it a 4 out of 5.”

Great selection of thrifty ice cream also. And when I'm going hunting they have 20# blocks of ice that last a long time. This is the best store for water and ice I have ever been to. If you haven't gotten your water here, you are missing out.”

“As a part of Indie Week (through Local First Arizona), I read about CHILL Water + Ice Cream and wanted to give it a try. I drove through several neighborhoods to find the plaza of shops that included this hidden gem. The signs outside were very welcoming as was the inside area with a nice ambiance, great customer service, and tasty offerings.The shop is family owned and operated, very proud of their Sunnyslope community, and according to the Local First Arizona website, "convinced that ice cream is the key to happiness," which I certainly would agree with! You can fill up with water (which even has 24/hour access outside the shop), grab a shaved ice, or get some ice cream or a float or shake (plus so much more!). They have a seating area, and while the shop is run by a family, the staff seem to do a wonderful job making everyone feel likely family when they come in. As I came in, I heard a friendly banter between the staff there and the customer before me. I also received some friendly service and great recommendations. I ordered a chocolate cappuccino flavor which was delicious! They also have a seating area though I chose to take my ice cream to go. In fact, they have freezers of ice cream of all sorts to go.You can also order from CHILL Water + Ice Cream through Uber Eats, GrubHub, Seamless, and Postmates. They also have an active social media presence through Facebook (facebook.com/CHILL.phx), Instagram (instagram.com/chill.phx), and Twitter (twitter.com/chillphx). They are currently redoing their website (chillphx.com). As it's now the beyond hot weather in Arizona, I look forward to coming back to "chill" with some tasty treats again soon at CHILL Water + Ice Cream!”

We ordered 2 party boxes when we entered and had to wait a bit of time before they were ready. I did notice some of the cookies were under done and fell apart.

I opted for a strawberry waffle cone and a sundae, and they exceeded my expectations.The strawberry waffle cone was a work of art. It was fresh, crispy, and had a lovely strawberry flavor that was both refreshing and indulgent. The perfect combination of textures and flavors made each bite a pure delight.Now, let's talk about the sundae. It was a masterpiece! The ice cream was incredibly creamy, and the toppings were generously piled on. Whether it was the hot fudge, whipped cream, or the cherry on top, every component was a burst of flavor. It was pure bliss in every spoonful.The staff was friendly and provided excellent service, making the whole experience even more enjoyable.

Bummed they did not offer hot fudge. Had everything else I would expect. Also- seasonal oatmeal cookie flavor was very good and unique! During our visit an employee was underway with an interview in the customer seating. It was awkward to hear the interview, the way he was speaking to the prospective employee was off-putting, and it made us feel like we were not welcome to stay.”

He went out of his way to check on me several times while I was waiting, even including several free ice creams with my order, helping me get my food to the car when my hands were super full, and treating me with a level of kindness that you would never expect from fast food places.
