Scream for Ice Cream Near Monarch Medical Center

Whether you enjoy strawberry milkshakes or two scoops of ice cream in a waffle cone, a cold treat often hits the spot when temperatures are soaring.

Nearby ice cream shops include:

Ben & Jerry’s 

Nestled in the Upper Kirby neighborhood, Ben & Jerry’s is often crowded. Believe it or not, in 1978 Ben and Jerry opened their first ice cream scoop shop in a renovated gas station in Burlington, Vermont. Ten years later, President Reagan named them “U.S. Small Business Persons of the Year.” Today, there are locations across the country, and each one offers Free Cone Day annually on the company’s anniversary. Flavors include Bourbon Brown Butter, Coconut Seven Layer Bar, and The Tonight Dough.

Kwality Ice Cream

The staff at Kwality Ice Cream is known for their commitment to excellence. This shop offers a vibrant atmosphere with a pink floor and countertops, and it has a four-star rating on Yelp as customers enjoy the environment, friendly service, and the unique ice cream flavors that they can sample before ordering. There are more than fifty-six to choose from, and each offers a smooth, creamy texture. Choices include Sea Salt Caramel, Tender Coconut, and Mango Pomegranate Apricot.

Hank’s Ice Cream

Just six minutes away is Hank’s Ice Cream, a Houston institution for more than twenty years. Hank’s passion for ice cream began as a child when he was a taste tester for the flavors served at the cafe owned by his mother and grandmother. His staff makes the ice cream by hand using fresh ingredients, and they offer eighteen flavors daily that rotate from a list of nearly one hundred. The most popular choices include Butter Pecan, Banana Pudding, and Cookies-N-Cream.
