Sweet Treats

As the end of summer approaches, cool off and satisfy your tastebuds at these go-to spots around town. Treat yourself, your kids, or your fur-kids to a frozen treat that bids adieu to summer.

    Lilo's Shaved Ice


    I love driving by Lilo's on summer nights — a parking lot full of people with brightly-colored tongues. They've got locations in Liberty and Parkville.

    Ella Mae's Creamery


    Ella Mae's Creamery is a food truck with all the summer faves — ice cream cones, shakes, splits, sundaes, and even hot dogs and nachos! 

  3. Paleteria La Monarca


    Here are all your go-to Mexican sweet treats, like chamoy-topped fruit and fried ice cream. But my eye is on the Monarca sandwich — a Mexican sweet bread filled with ice cream and toppings.

    Italian Sausage Company


    If you're craving Betty Rae's but don't want to go south of the River, Italian Sausage Company has specialty flavors, like Italian fig cookie, made just for their location. 

  5. Sweet EMOtion


    If you're looking for vegan, dairy-free oat milk ice cream with a bit of a punk rock flair, this spot will hit your very specific needs!

  6. Yogurtini Shoal Creek


    I love the customizability of a froyo place — whether you're a single-topping person or live by the philosophy that you can never have too much of a good thing.

    Green Dirt Farm


    End a perfect day in Weston with a scoop of housemade ice cream — their flavors rotate and every single one is perfection.

    Dari B


    This seasonal and unassuming takeout-only joint is a cult favorite for a reason — and it has the summer lines to prove it!

  9. Popculture Gourmet Popcorn


    A day of strolling around Parkville deserves a scoop of ice cream — and Popculture has plenty of flavors to choose from.
