It’s the time of year again. When your thermostat can’t go any lower and the best way to cool down is with a sweet treat, these seven locations make their own ice cream sure to excite your taste buds as you escape the heat.

Snack Attack
601 N. Mustang Road, Yukon | 405-324-2072

If you want to go to a neveria, but are worried about a potential language barrier, Snack Attack is perfect. Owned by the same family that operates Refresqueria Las Delicias (1107 SW 59th Street), Snack Attack offers many of the treats like tamales, homemade ice creams, agua frescas and nachos, but cater to an English- speaking audience.

Neveria La Michoacana NG
4922 NW 23rd Street | 405-473-0034

Connected to a taqueria with the same name, this 23rd Street location is a one- stop shop for some of the best al pastor tacos in the city (carved from a spinning roaster with an open flame called a trompo) and homemade ice cream. Once you’ve eaten a meal, head next door when you can finish with fresh, home-made ice cream and agua frescas.

Roxy’s Ice Cream Social
1732 NW 16th Street | 405-521-1300

Kaiser’s has the history, but no brand is more synonymous for Oklahoma City ice cream than Roxy’s. With three storefronts, and a host of retailers and restaurants both selling standalone Roxy’s products or using their homemade ice cream in dishes, there’s no debating the biggest ice cream influencer. Try a classic like its cookies and cream or venture to a seasonal flavor.

Capitals Ice Cream
1006 N. Hudson Ave, Suite 100 | 405-600-9966

It’s a machine Capitals Ice Cream found- ers often referred to as “The Swirler,” that makes this midtown location (as well as its Cities Ice Cream location in Edmond) standout from the pack. The machine, which was popularized in New Zealand where abundant fresh fruit is whipped into ice cream, whips all sorts of mix-ins into one cohesive bite that is sure to please your taste buds and attract likes on social media.

Gazedibles: Ice Cream

Bibi’s Ice Cream
1316 W. Memorial Road | 405-607-0060

The combination of pizza and ice cream is the perfect combination, no matter your age. Connected to Birria Birria Craft Pizza, customers can add ice cream to their order or walk into BiBi’s independently. The power of customization is in the custom- er’s hands. Choose from 12 regular flavors or two vegan varieties, and then you get to customize your own sundae or cone with sauces and toppings.

Dolci Paradiso
17 E. 5th Street, Suite 101, Edmond | 405-216-3538

Since opening its first location in south OKC (10740 S. May Ave. Suite 116), this one-stop-shop for everything sweet (gelato, cakes and pastry) expanded into Edmond last year. Peruse the interesting selection of gelato (don’t sleep on the rice flavor) and sorbet, but also don’t forget about cakes, which can also be ordered in gluten- free and vegan-friendly versions.

Kaiser’s Grateful Bean
Café 1039 N. Walker Ave. | 405-236-3503

Depending how long you’ve lived in Oklahoma City, Kaiser’s has taken on many iterations over the years: traditional soda shop, vegetarian restaurant and even an underground punk club. No matter which Kaiser’s of the past to which you most relate, Kaiser’s commitment to providing homemade ice cream in an old-school setting with such treats as a black cow ice cream soda, malts and sundaes that unites everyone.
