Punch the heat in Dubai: 5 best ice cream parlors in the city

Ice cream is one of those treats that always makes you feel better and smile, regardless of the weather. Sometimes all you need to brighten your day considerably is one scoop of ice cream. In Dubai, you have a ton of dessert options to choose from, especially if you’re craving ice cream. This city is a dessert lover’s paradise. We have put together a list of Dubai’s top ice cream stores to help you in your search. Therefore, we have listed 5 cool locations where you can have the tastiest ice cream.

Black Tap

The towers of dessert-topped delight that can go viral on social media are what caught people’s attention, but fortunately Black Tap’s enormous milkshakes also strike all the right flavour notes. Although they frequently add seasonal flavours to the menu, pumpkin pie was served during Halloween, and red, white, green, and black confections were served on UAE National Day. The iconic chocolate Brooklyn Blackout and the sweet-and-salty treat with peanut butter filling continue to be customers’ favourites.


Each scoop of ice cream at this well-known Italian sorbet and gelato shop, which has locations all over the city, is meticulously sculpted into a rose, creating a visual buzz in addition to a gustatory one. Additionally, because each petal is individually produced, you may mix and match any number of flavours to produce a bloom with a variety of tastes. For the ideal creamy, crunchy combo, get their pistachio macaron sandwich, which is our top recommendation.


Enjoy ice cream with incredibly smooth textures thanks to Scoopi, a locally produced brand that quickly freezes ice cream using billowing nitrogen dioxide. Our favourite of their signature sweets is the Lotus, which is deservedly a bestseller. The Black Diamond delight, which featured gold flakes in a handcrafted bowl, was served at their original location on Jumeirah Beach Road. Try it at Time Out Market, where you can bask in the warmth of the sun while eating ice cream while taking in views of The Dubai Fountain.

Coldstone Creamery

Coldstone Creamery lets you choose your mix-ins and base flavours before their talented “sundae artists” get to work blending them on a frozen granite slab, promising the best ice cream experiences and delivering them for more than 25 years. There are countless options, including chocolate bars, gummy bears, and sprinkles. The Birthday Cake Remix, which uses their famous cake batter ice cream as the festive base, is their best-selling item.

Ice Cream Lab

At the Ice Cream Lab, where flavors are frozen using nitrogen oxide to create unique, made-to-order confections, fun is firmly in the spotlight. The Blue Velvet is the one to choose if you want to be on the safe side with a favorite. And while you’re there, encourage the kids to sample the liquid nitrogen-dipped popcorn called Dragon’s Breath, which when you crunch into it releases vapors out your mouth and nose.
