This Midwest-based chain boasts 3 stores in one: a grill, soda fountain and grocery store all within the same building. Offering ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet and other sweet treats made with milk from their own private dairy herd. During warm weather, a Cherry Limeade from Braum’s is a must-have!

Churn & Burn

This locally-owned spot specializes in ice cream and coffee. Something unique about Churn N Burn is their use of liquid nitrogen to create perfectly textured ice cream there in the store. My preschooler was completely fascinated with watching the ice cream-making process, as customers are able to see the ice cream being made behind the counter. One of their specialties is the Churn & Burn, a combination of coffee or espresso and ice cream.

Cocoa Dolce

Stop in for a scoop of gelato at Cocoa Dolce! Famous for their artisan chocolates, this Wichita sweets staple has 3 locations (east, west, and downtown) also serves gelato and specialty drinks like Organic Citrus Green Iced Tea, Cocoa Dolce Iced Chocolate and other cold treats. A Lavender Lemonade is the perfect way to beat the heat!

Cold Stone Creamery

An ice cream shake with a donut on the side? Yes please! The Cold Stone menu provides a seemingly endless variety of treats for your tastebuds, including ice cream, cakes, yogurt, sorbet, shakes, smoothies and frappes.

Specializing in steakburgers and frozen custard, this chain with local roots also serves sundaes and blended sundaes called concretes.  The Dirt n’ Worms Sundae or Concrete made with vanilla custard, Oreo cookies, Gummi Worms and whipped cream will delight your little ones and you will probably find yourself stealing more than one bite.
