The 11 Best Ice Cream Shops In Columbus | July | National Ice Cream Month

July is National Ice Cream Month and in our house we love to celebrate all month long.  Nothing is better than enjoying an ice cream cone after a day at the pool or a long bike ride or just because. :-) We have so many great places in Columbus to enjoy the delicious frozen treat, and in honor of National Ice Cream month I’m sharing our top 11 favorite ice cream places. Each one has a unique reason we love it and I hope you'll love them too. 

Stay tuned later in the week for how we have fun making our own homemade ice cream.  


  1. Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams - Brown Butter Almond Brittle, Salty Caramel, Brambleberry Crisp....enough said. 

  2. Graeter’s Ice Cream - Classic flavors, sundaes, and kids sundaes

  3. Handel’s Ice Cream - The Handel's Hurricane is AH-MAZING!!! I really love the nerds hurricane.  

  4. Velvet Ice Cream - The delicious, super creamy ice cream is worth the drive to Utica and their food is also really great. You can also find them in the ice cream section at Giant Eagle.

  5. The Little Ice Cream Shoppe -This adorable shop in Hilliard is delicious.  Sometimes they sell out which is awesome! 

  6. Kilwins Dublin has so many delicious treats including ice cream!

  7. Johnson’s Ice Cream - Check out their new location in Dublin or head to Bexley for their original location.

  8. Mardi Gras Homemade Ice Cream - I remember this one from my childhood,  it's a staple in Worthington. 

  9. Simply Rolled Ice Cream - looking for something a little different? Rolled ice cream is a fun new twist on an old classic. 

  10. Cream & Sugar - Located downtown and super delicious.  

  11. Cookie Dough Creamery - Love cookie dough?  Love Ice cream? This places combines the two. Pay by the size not the weight which is great since they have a full bar of toppings you can pour over your ice cream.  Not a cookie dough fan? No worries - you can get a bowl of just ice cream.
