When the sun is at its highest point in the sky and temperatures are in the 90s and even 100s, few things are more refreshing than delicious ice cream. Cold and delicious, having a cup (or a cone) of ice cream is the perfect way to combat the heat in the long summer months. Fortunately, Addison has plenty of ice cream shops for you to choose from.
A chain restaurant with over 15 locations nationwide, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream is a fantastic place to get a frozen treat. All their ice creams have a nice, smooth texture and buttercream body; there are no dyes, off-the-shelf-mixes, emulsifiers, or synthetic flavorings in any of the flavors – just straight up deliciousness. There are many delicious flavors to choose from, such as Skillet Cinnamon Roll, Milkiest Chocolate, Salty Caramel, and many more.

They might be a cookie shop primarily, but Tiff’s Treats also offers ice cream to go with their warm cookies.
