The Best Ice Cream in New Braunfels

Best Ice Cream New Braunfels TX

Ice cream is one of those indispensable summer treats that, if done right, turns into a full-blown family activity. It’s an hour to bedtime, and the impending sugar high will have you questioning all your life decisions, but… you’re only young once. If your kids want ice cream at 8 PM—and they’ll never ask again!—then far be it from you to deny them.

Except the sun is now setting, so everyone is going to need a sweatshirt. And probably bug spray. And you’ll need a wallet, which you haven’t seen since your kids’ Very Necessary Video Game Expense of 24 hours ago. Shoot… are you out of lactose pills? Your daughter says she doesn’t need them, but just in case…

By the time everyone is ready to leave, your interest in ice cream has turned into a hankering for some wine. Which, if you live in New Braunfels, can mean only one thing: Scoop Street.

My kids love Scoop Street for its seasonal flavors that you can’t find anywhere else. I’m a stickler for a healthy breakfast, but I fully support Cinnamon Toast Crunch ice cream—especially when it’s churned from scratch in-house. Factory-made bases and mixes are pretty standard nowadays, but Scoop Street has its own standards. Their ice creams, dairy-free sorbets, and floats aren’t just delicious. They’re also real.

And as for the grown-ups, Scoop Street serves wine, beer, and even espresso. This, to me, is what makes their shop outstanding. It’s not hard to sell ice cream to a child or drinks to a parent, but to combine both treats seamlessly and with class is a triumph. Scoop Street gives the heart of downtown New Braunfels something for everyone to enjoy.

Why do I share this with you? Not because this is an ad—it isn’t. I just appreciate local businesses that go above and beyond, and as a realtor in New Braunfels, I love to help others make the most of living here.

No matter what my kids say, I’ll be at Scoop Street more times this summer than “just this once.” Come say hi!
