Whether you’re trying to beat the heat or just need something cool and creamy, you’ll find everything you’re looking for just around the corner in Katy – including frozen custards, sundaes, and milkshakes in every flavor you can imagine. Here are our top picks!

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers

You know you’re in the right place when the treat you’re looking for is part of the restaurant’s name. You can get your frozen custard in a sundae, concrete, or as a simple cone. They take the classic chocolate and vanilla and top them with unique, mouth-watering flavors like pineapple, caramel, and crumbled cookies.

Tutti Frutti Frozen Yogurt

A short drive into West Houston will lead you to this fun eatery where you’ll encounter the very real problem of trying to figure out what delicious flavor to try first. This isn’t your typical froyo, as you can probably tell, with choices like Blueberry Muffin, Papaya, Candy Cane Cookies n’ Cream, and Vanilla Green Tea Latte. They also have nondairy options!

Ritter’s Frozen Custard

Like Freddy’s, this dessert destination says it all in their name. Ritter’s offers two classic flavors (vanilla and chocolate) on which to build your ideal treat. Choose from an extensive list of toppings and flavor additives, from nuts and fruits to spices and candy bar bits. They also make killer sundaes – like their Strawberry Shortcake and Peanut Butter Mountain. Yum!


This local coldspot uses liquid nitrogen to achieve its delectable frozen treats. Their menu includes both dairy and nondairy ice cream options in all the classics flavors – and some unique new one, including Cap’n Crunch, Nutella, and Frosted Animal Cookie.

SomiSomi Soft Serve & Taiyaki

Inspired by a Korean dessert called Ah-Boong, this delicious soft serve comes in a fish-shaped waffle cone that’s first filled with sweet custard. The mouth-watering ice cream options include horchata, milk tea, matcha, and coffee.
