It may be late August, but the Texas sun is still going strong. For that reason, you might be doing just about anything you can to stay cool until temperatures drop in the coming months. And, if you’re like us, “anything” certainly includes eating plenty of icy cold treats – particularly good, old fashioned ice cream or gelato. No matter how you take your ice cream, these 3 Dallas shops will tickle your fancy with tons of delicious menu items and safe, COVID-friendly takeout options.

Highland Park, Texas 75225
It doesn’t get much more homemade than Howdy Homemade, Highland Park’s most beloved ice cream shop. This ice cream shop – which only employs people with disabilities - churns out fresh, made-in-house ice creams every day. If you’re not feeling a traditional cone of vanilla, head to Howdy Homemade for inventive, yet classic, flavors like Dr. Pepper chocolate chip, avocado lime, sweet tea, and fruit punch - although, yes, they do make an incredible vanilla ice cream, too! Stop by for takeout orders.
