The Best Ice Cream Shops In Columbus

I scream, You scream, We all scream for ice cream!

Okay, so maybe we don’t scream for it (we are adults, after all) but we can certainly be excited about it. Living in Columbus, we have so many amazing ice cream options that you could eat a different flavor and style every day of the month and never repeat an option. It doesn’t matter if you’re on the hunt for international treats like paletas or a classic cone of soft serve. If you want it, you can find it in Cbus.

Alright people! Here are the best places in Columbus to grab a scoop. Sun’s out, Spoons out!

Double Happy

Location: 1280 Brown Rd, Columbus, OH 43223
Hours: Monday-Saturday from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. and closed on Sunday.

Location: 5266 W Broad St, Columbus, OH 43228
Hours: Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and closed on Sunday.
Treat to try: Tony’s Coneys is the ice cream of my youth, so naturally, I’m inclined to say, EVERYTHING IS AWESOME. But in all seriousness, I am all about the hand-dipped cones from Tony’s Coneys.

Mardi Gras Homemade Ice Cream

A post shared by Madisen Ngo (@khanhyewestz) on

Location: 1807, 1947 Hard Rd, Columbus, OH 43235
Hours: Open daily from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Treat to try: If you want to truly step outside your comfort zone, please go to Mardi Gras Homemade Ice Cream. The international flavors are off the charts and the Malai Kulfi flavor is the stuff dreams are made of.

Dulce Vida Ice Cream Factory

via Facebook

Location: 2400 Home Acre Dr, Columbus, OH 43231
Hours: Open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Treat to try: I’ve never had a bad scoop from Dulce Vida but to make this easier on you, I’ll just say that their Pistachio ice cream is the best I’ve ever had.

Whit’s Frozen Custard

via Facebook

Location: 3339 N High St, Columbus, OH 43202
Hours: Sunday-Thursday from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday-Saturday from 12 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Treat to try: I know what you’re thinking. “Chelsea, how could you? Whit’s is frozen custard, not ice cream!” Technically, you’re right. But Whit’s is SO good that I just couldn’t not include it. If you aren’t sold on frozen custard, order the Buckeye Madness Whitser. It’s vanilla custard with Reese’s Cup, chocolate syrup, and peanut butter and it’s SO. FREAKIN’. DELICIOUS.

Simply Rolled

Location: 970 N High St, Columbus, OH 43201
Hours: Sunday-Thursday from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday-Saturday from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m.
