Local Ice Cream Shops

What better way than to beat the heat this summer than to enjoy some delicious frozen treats! Here is a list of local ice cream shops, frozen yogurt cafes, frozen custard, Italian ice & more. While we excluded national chains, such as Dairy Queen, Baskin Robbins, Ben & Jerry’s and so forth, we did include local chains that are a MUST TRY!

With a special mention of Goodberry’s – our frozen custard chain that is nationally acclaimed & mentioned on all the ‘must try when visiting The Triangle/North Carolina” lists out there. It began here in Raleigh at the corner or Spring Forest Rd & Atlantic Ave in 1988!

We also excluded restaurants that serve up delicious frozen treats (such as Bittersweet in Downtown Raleigh) & only included places that have frozen treats as their main focus!

We love to support local businesses & feature them on our local guides so if you have a business or know of a business that is not listed but should definitely be on this list, please let us know & we’ll get it added!
