Read time: 2 minutes

Let’s face it: San Antonio summers are HOT. What better way to cool down than with a tasty frozen treat of ice cream or gelato? We’ve rounded up the best ice cream shops in San Antonio—from classic and original to unique and creative, all with countless options to choose from that will satisfy even the pickiest eaters. Here’s to cooling off—sweetly!

The Best Ice Cream Shops in San Antonio

210 Ice Cream

7126 Bandera Rd
Located on the far west side of town off Bandera Rd., 210 Ice Cream serves up unique sweet treats, including an array of funnel cake desserts like fried oreo, banana split, and strawberry. Have a taste for something more simple? They also have classic ice cream floats, sundaes, and raspas that can be ordered with or without ice cream.


7915 W Loop 1604 N Ste 120
The words colorful, creative, and fresh perfectly describe Kuma, a Hong Kong-style ice cream shop with two locations in San Antonio. Their menu features bubble waffle cones, milk tea, and specialty drinks like Hyper Potion and Butterfly Effect. Everyone in your group will be pleased because it’s not all about sugar at Kuma. They also serve salty snacks, including Gyoza, fries, and Asian wings.

Rolling Rey’s

2026 Babcock Rd.
Rolled ice cream is popular on social media and if the post you’re liking is from San Antonio, it was probably taken at Rolling Rey’s. All of their ice cream is homemade and their menu is full of fun desserts with a Texas twist, incorporating chamoy, mango, and other flavors unique to the South Texas region. Break up the rolled cream with sweet and salty snacks like corn in a cup (puro San Anto!), churros, and nachos.

Psst…Another way to cool off is at a water park!


312 Pearl Parkway, #2101
With three locations each in San Antonio and Austin, Lick Honest Ice Creams scoops up homemade ice cream with a heart. They support their communities with intention, raising over $50,000 to date for local nonprofits in both cities. Their menu is just as thoughtful, including traditional “everyday flavors” like Caramel Salt Lick and Goat Cheese, Thyme & Honey, as well as seasonals like Horchata and Honeyed Peaches with Rosemary. They also serve non-dairy/vegan ice cream and sandwiches. Get your scoop fix at the Pearl, Hemisfair, or The RIM.


711 S St. Mary’s St.
This one may sound like it’s just for the adults, but it has kid-friendly options too. For the grown-ups, Boozy’s Creamery & Craft blends your favorite childhood flavors with classic spirits like rum, tequila, and bourbon. Try their Vanilla Cherry Cordial, Blackberry Limoncello, or Not Your Mama’s PB & J, and let the flavors guide you from there. Out with the tots? No worries, they also have “basic” or kid-friendly options like cookie monster, strawberry, and chocolate cake batter. If you’re just looking for an afternoon drink, they also serve local beer and wine. 

Iced Up SA

Varied locations, currently The Shops at Alamo Ranch
Usually parked at The Shops at Alamo Ranch, Iced Up SA is a food truck that doles out mangonadas, shaved ice, and chamoy-forward fruit trays. They also have gummy bears, sour strips, and gummy worms that can be added to your cup or purchased separately. If you’re into salty-sour-sweet, add pickles to your ice for major San Antonio vibes. Iced Up also serves nachos with cheese and hot Cheetos.
