Whether it’s something slushy that you crave or you’re inclined to something creamy, Frisco is loaded with cold treats to beat the heat this summer.
A couple of years ago we took an informal poll to gather the BEST places to find a frozen treat in Frisco. From year to year, and as Frisco grows, sometimes we hear of new favorites.
Tell us, did your favorite place make our “Top 5” list? If not, leave us a comment and tell us where you go for your fave frozen treats!
1. The Snow Cone Lady: A visit to the Snow Cone Lady’s familiar red hut is a beloved tradition in Frisco. She’s been a local staple for over 30 years and if you haven’t tried one of her snow cones, then you haven’t fully experienced summer in Frisco. The owner has spent years perfecting original concoctions like the Ninja Turtle and Wedding Cake, adding personal touches like sour and cream. Check the Snow Cone Lady’s Facebook page for updates (weather can affect her hours).
Address: 8760 John W. Elliott Dr, Frisco, TX 75034 (map)
2. Cow Tipping Creamery: Located at The Star, they specialize in soft-serve ice cream along with unique, scratch-made twists on traditional ice cream toppings, layered throughout their “stacker” sundaes. Stackers include fun flavor combinations such as Gimme S’More and Reese’s Witha’Spoon.
With rotating weekly special flavors and endless toppings combinations, plus shakes and Hong Kong-style bubble waffle cones, there’s always a reason to eat more ice cream!
3. Mochas & Javas: A Texas startup, Mochas & Javas is known for excellent coffee, kolaches, sandwiches, and baked goods. When you’re ready for a sweet treat, try the Mocha Java-Chino, a frozen-favorite made with Espresso and Sweet Chocolate, topped with Whipped Cream.
Try the Oreo Java-Chino, a frozen espresso treat blended with sweet cookies and cream or the Caramel Java-Chino made with espresso and caramel sauce!
4. Bahama Buck’s: For many residents, Bahama Buck’s shaved ice is a favorite Frisco tradition. At the heart of Bahama Buck’s menu is their island-inspired world-famous Sno®–ribbons of soft, fluffy shaved ice, generously showered with one of more than 91 Bahama Buck’s proprietary gourmet flavors. The frozen fare doesn’t stop there, however; try a Frostalatte® or a Bahama Soda.
5. Purple Kiwi: For those looking for a lighter option, Purple Kiwi offers delicious non-fat frozen yogurt, low-fat frozen yogurt, and sorbet. Located in a shopping center near Stonebriar Mall, the creative flavors range from sweet to sorbet and the toppings range from healthy blueberries to dangerous brownie bites. Grab a cup, self-select your toppings, and they’ll weigh it to determine your price. It’s fun to build your own, and as delicious as it is convenient.
Bruster’s Real Ice Cream: Our resident Frisco Foodie tells us, “This is the Way Ice Cream Was Meant to be Experienced.” The cornerstone of Bruster’s business is quality – both in the product they make and the service they provide. The product is REAL ICE CREAM, made the old fashioned way, on-site.
iCream Cafe: Walking into the iCream Café, you can’t help but feel like you’ve entered the future with twisting tubes and metallic mixers, but one taste and you’ll know it’s good old-fashioned ice cream. If anything, it tastes creamier and better than a classic ice cream cone.
