August is one of the hottest and most humid months of the year, so if you’re in desperate need of a cold treat, we can help. Here are our favorite local ice cream shops in Anaheim and the surrounding area that we think you’ll love. And with the state regulations closing down indoor service, these shops could use your support. 

Joe’s Italian Ice

Joe’s Italian Ice prides itself on creating the fruitiest Italian ice paired with the creamiest ice cream shipped from a dairy in Pennsylvania. All recipes originate in the restaurant’s laboratory kitchen and are sold exclusively at the shop. If you are craving an icy treat, this is the place to visit. 

House of Chimney Cakes

Located south of Villa Serrano Apartments, House of Chimney Cakes serves a Hungarian dessert called Kürtöskalács. It consists of freshly baked Hungarian sweet bread shaped like a cylinder and topped with delicious ice cream. The shop offers a variety of flavors: Oreo Overload, S’mores, All-American Apple Pie, Everyday Birthday Cake, and more! If your taste buds are salivating for the combination of a crispy cake with a doughy middle and a scoop of delicious ice cream, this is your spot. 

Baskin Robbins

Just a short walk away from the community, Baskin Robbins is a traditional ice cream shop that can cure your late-night sweet tooth cravings. Their hours are 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. If you aren’t feeling up to going out, take advantage of DoorDash and get your creamy dessert delivered straight to your apartment. 

Frostbites Crepes & Frozen Delights

Frostbites Crepes & Frozen Delights is a favorite of many. With almost five stars on Yelp and over 1,800 reviews, you know the treats there ought to be good. We recommend ordering their sorbet cream, which consists of fresh Italian ice layered with premium ice cream. Customers select an ice cream base and then can choose as many mix-in flavors as they want. For our more adventurous residents, consider getting a sweet crepe (served hot right off the griddle) and top it with cream. You’re welcome!

As summer is ending and the hot weather is staying, we could all cool off with some frozen desserts. Visit one of these local ice cream shops near Anaheim for a sweet treat! The store owners (and your taste buds) will love you!
