Sweet Republic ice cream

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. Here are the top places to get ice cream in Phoenix.

Sweet Republic

Sweet Republic has been recognized for their unique artisan ice cream by Sunset Magazine, Bon Appétit, the Food Network and many others. You can try their yummy flavors like Blue Cheese with Medjool Dates, Salted Caramel or Guinness at their original Scottsdale location, in central Phoenix (coming soon) and Phoenix Sky Harbor airport.


This adorable ice cream parlor is located next door to Windsor and serves up many delicious seasonal flavors like Vanilla Lemon and Peanut Butter. Our recommendation is to choose two cookies to go along with your favorite flavor of ice cream to make one delicious ice cream sandwich.


If you have a late night ice cream craving, Melt is the place for you. Open until midnight daily and located just off of Roosevelt Row next door to Jobot Coffee, Melt serves Udder Delights ice cream with flavors like licorice, sour apple, cotton candy and birthday cake.

Udder Delights

This Gilbert ice cream shop is known for it’s experimental flavors like potato chip, and red hot banana, but their traditional flavors are plentiful and delicious too. For a special treat, try the chocolate milkshake.


Retro soda shop, MacAlpines has all the retro ice cream treats you can dream of. Malts, shakes, sundaes, ice cream sodas and egg creams are all delicious at this vintage Phoenix spot.

Bertie’s of Arcadia

Half vintage women’s clothing store, half soda fountain Bertie’s of Arcadia has a fun retro vibe. Make sure to try to try one of their signature shakes like the PB and banana Elvis Presley.


Love ice cream, but maybe it doesn’t love you back? For a dairy-free treat try a tSoynami at local vegan coffee shop/sweet stop, Nami. A tSoynami is similar to a Blizzard of Dairy Queen fame.  Nami features over a dozen dairy-free and vegan flavors to choose from.
