We all scream for ice cream, especially when summertime hits in Phoenix. Check out a few local ice cream shops to chill out at this season. (Please, refrain from actually screaming at employees, though. Ordering at a regular volume works just fine.)

Melt Ice Cream

From the culinary minds behind Jobot Coffee and Superstition Farms' Udder Delights comes the eclectic and delicious Melt Ice Cream. This unique ice cream shop takes artisan to the next level, offering a spin on classic flavors and using locally sourced ingredients. Each cold treat is topped with a fortune cookie, making for a great photo-op.

Sparky’s Old Town Creamery

Sparky’s Creamery will never let you down, with their classic made-from-scratch ice creams, sorbets, malts, and shakes. They also offer Hawaiian shaved ice and smoothies. You can enjoy it in a bowl, cone, or make an ice cream sandwich. There are so many ways to eat at Sparky’s, you’ll have to keep coming back to master the menu.

Mary Coyle’s Ol’ Fashion Ice Cream

Since 1951, Mary Coyle has been serving up old-fashioned favorites in the Phoenix area. You can order online, have it delivered, or have it catered for a full smorgasbord for yourself or to share. With a variety of convenient options to get ice cream, order up for any meal, any time you’re in the mood!

If you haven’t stopped by any local creameries in a while, now is the season. Take your pick or try them all this summer!
