IceCream ShakeShack 728x524

IceCream McConnells 728x524

13. McConnell's Fine Ice Creams

Why not double-decker your ice-cream sandwich? May we suggest Summer Fruit Cobbler ice cream with Vanilla Gooey Butter Cookies and Raspberry Lingonberry sauce over Pistachio Amaretto ice cream with Sweet Corn Sugar Cookies?

IceCream Coolhaus 728x524

11. Coolhaus

Cookies-and-cream ice cream sandwiched between two cookies-and-cream macarons? Yes please.

8. Sweet Rose Creamery

A vegan ice cream that’s a solid, creamy contender? We would never lie to you. You must try the dairy-free dark chocolate topped with cacao nibs.

IceCream Three Twins 728x524

7. Three Twins Ice Cream

This Northern Cali transplant knows we need a little sumpin-sumpin to get us going on Monday mornings. So it’s ready with Madagascar vanilla and a shot of espresso.
