Omaha Ice Cream Big on Flavor and Local Flair
It’s no secret. Omaha loves new restaurants and food experiences. Ice cream is not to be excluded. We’ve had the opportunity to enjoy some interesting ice cream that is truly special and we’ve enjoyed basic ice cream in a really special location. One thing we’ve learned is that most of us in the metro area have a go-to location for just about everything, including ice cream.
Our agents have their favorite ice cream spots and they were happy to share which ones they love and why. Several Nebraska Realty agents agree that the best is the Dairy Chef in Elkhorn. “You can't beat stopping by the Dairy Chef in Elkhorn for an ice cream treat. You will most likely find some good conversation with friends and neighbors as you wait in line. A true neighborhood gem,” one agent said. Anyone who has driven by the Dairy Chef has seen the crowds and lines that form outside the walk-up shop that looks like it’s straight out of the 80s. It’s a throwback to simpler times and community gathering for a good soft-serve cone.
It's likely safe to say that Zesto’s is near and dear to the hearts of many Omahans, as well as thousands from across the country who ever attended the College World Series at Rosenblatt. Andy Alloway shared that Zesto’s has been a long-standing favorite and the new location in West Omaha “helps make it easier to enjoy more often.” Zestos is still standing near the zoo and former Rosenblatt location and will be forever cherished the fond memories for many who grabbed a cone on their way to or from the games.
Justine Skipton and Brian Carlin are fans of Ted and Wally’s. Their Benson location has picked up steam and that is her ice cream spot of choice. Of course, the Old Market location is always a hit, but no matter which location you choose, you’re bound to find some interesting flavors being offered. Brian’s favorite is the pumpkin!
ICE CREAM, DELIVERED
While the urge for ice cream is usually instantaneous and requires immediate attention, one of Omaha's favorite locations also ships ice cream. It's easy to sign up and get local, freshly made ice cream delivered to your home without missing a beat when you order through eCreamery, although they do love their walk-in customers just as much! “When I want ice cream, eCreamery takes the cake,” raved Angel Starks.
One of the newest ice cream shops in Omaha is Coneflower. One agent said, “I hear Coneflower is the place to be, so I plan to visit really soon!” A visit to Coneflower is probably a good idea for anyone looking for great ice cream. They boast a farm-to-cone freshness and unique flavor blends like Basil and White Chocolate and fresh summer flavors like Fresh Picked Strawberry.
Though we all have our preferred spots, take the challenge to try something new this summer!
