It's summertime in Texas, and you know what that means…heat! What better way to beat the heat than with something cool and sweet? Dallas, Texas is home to many frozen delights, but don't settle for a simple scoop. Here are a few shops that take ice cream to another level, just minutes from our Uptown Dallas apartments!
Originally hailing from California, Milk • Cream puts its own spin on the ice cream sandwich. Called the "milk and cream bun", they combine their rich creamy frozen treat between a hot and fresh sliced donut! With flavors like honey lavender and cookie butter, or classic vanilla topped with anything from gummy worms to Fruity Pebble cereal, the options are endless! Located in Lower Greenville, Milk • Cream is a must-see!
One visit to this downtown ice cream shop might just change your view on popsicles forever! Picolé Pops is a family-owned artisan shop, specializing in Brazilian-style handcrafted popsicles. You can enjoy a traditional-style popsicle in very nontraditional flavors like Cucumber Lime, or the boozy Tequila Sunrise. Or, be a little more adventurous and try a creamy pop, like the Banana Nutella, dipped, drizzled, and nestled in a waffle cone!
Last, but certainly not least is Baldo's, a chic artisan ice cream and coffee bar in University Park. Using high-quality locally sourced ingredients, they proudly serve "anything but vanilla." Baldo's invites you to step outside your comfort zone and experience rich flavors such as Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Salted Caramel, or Blood Orange Limeade. Can't choose just one? No worries, as Baldo's offers an ice cream flight, allowing you to try up to six flavors at a time!
Dallas is full of unique dining experiences and many attractions to explore. Enjoying a delicious sandwich in a cafe before a picture-worthy frozen treat could be your new summer routine. Contact us to speak to a leasing agent and discover how to make The Ashton Uptown experience your own.
