A scoop of ice cream is the perfect way to cool down as the weather gets warmer. Plenty of local spots serve this frozen treat, whether on a waffle, with a side of coffee, or sandwiched between two donuts. Get ready to travel in style when you head out to a local ice cream shop in McKinney, Texas, in your new vehicle. Check out this list of the best ice cream in town that our team at Huffines Kia Mckinney put together.
Drip N Roll
Rolled ice cream almost looks too good to eat. The presentation of it is phenomenal at the local Drip N Roll in McKinney. Instead of scoops, the ice cream and its flavors are mixed on a flat top that keeps everything cold as the server prepares the treat. As the ice cream is scraped off the flat top, it’s rolled and placed into a cup for you to eat with a spoon.
Choose the Coffee Lover, Cookie N’ Cream, Ferrero Rocher, or S’more for decadent ice cream flavors topped with crunchy peanuts or graham crackers. For a fruity taste, Strawberry Cheesecake or Mango Passion will surely satisfy your palette. Go for the Cotton Candy rolled ice cream topped with cotton candy sprinkles or the Tuitty Fruity topped with Airheads Xtremes for a unique treat.
Drip N Roll has a full drink menu if you’re curious to try bubble tea or are already a huge fan. It offers classic milk tea flavors like taro and Thai, but you can choose rose, jasmine, or lavender for a floral-infused taste. Consider purchasing Oreo, horchata, or salt caramel milk tea for a delicious blend of flavors. Slushie lovers will appreciate the shop’s sweet slush offerings, such as pineapple, lychee, mango, or guava. Add tapioca pearls to enjoy a wonderfully chewy bite with each sip of your delicious drink.
- Location: 1681 N. Central Expressway, Suite 700, McKinney.
- Hours: Noon to 9:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and noon to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
Sugar Ice Cream & Waffles
For ice cream served in a classic waffle cone, visit McKinney’s Sugar Ice Cream & Waffles. Select from various waffle cone flavors, such as sugar, matcha, red velvet, or dark chocolate. Or get your ice cream scoop served on a warm waffle topped with your choice of sauce and sprinkles. Order the Pineapple Magma for a truly indulgent treat. This dish features a full pineapple filled with chocolate, fruit, ice cream, nuts, and whipped cream.
If you’re in the mood for a warm and doughy treat, this local ice cream shop offers soft Waffle Bites topped with cinnamon, sugar sauce, or syrup. Another option is the Waffle Panini, a filling sandwich made of waffles served with chocolate and fresh fruit. If you want to order something lighter, several fruit salad selections exist. Sugar Ice Cream & Waffles is open late, so you can stop by for dessert after dinner or treat yourself to a late-night snack.

Cream & Sugar
Come to Cream & Sugar to get your coffee fix while enjoying a scoop of yummy, locally made ice cream. Get a hot drip craft coffee or nitro cold brew if you want it iced. This combo coffee and ice cream shop also offers espresso drinks such as macchiatos, lattes, and cappuccinos. Want a unique drink? Choose from its signature drinks like The Honeycomb for a honey and cinnamon latte or The Reindeer, a hazelnut and mocha latte that smells just as good as it tastes.
Customize any drink with add-ins such as vanilla, caramel, pumpkin spice, or lavender syrup. Not a fan of coffee? Cream & Sugar’s drink menu extends to offer something for everyone, like a soothing cup of Mexican hot chocolate or chai. Order the kombucha or iced lemonade for a cold, refreshing drink, or ask for an Arnold Palmer for a sweet blend of iced tea and lemonade.
If you’re open to trying a special treat, order an affogato. It’s a tasty treat featuring a shot of espresso with a scoop of ice cream. Since Cream & Sugar makes its own ice cream, the flavors change monthly. Be sure to come back for a taste of something new. Pints are available, so you can take your favorite flavor home to enjoy whenever you’d like.

- Hours: From 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
The Bodega @ Craig Ranch
The Bodega @ Craig Ranch is an unexpected ice cream shop because it’s primarily a market where you can buy groceries. In addition to stocking up on seasonal goods such as fresh jams, spices, and teas, come to The Bodega for the best hand-dipped gelato in McKinney. This Italian ice cream specialty is so smooth and creamy you’ll want to take home a pint or two.
There are several decadent gelato flavors, including chocolate and Coffee Mocha Swirl. If you like rich ice cream flavors, order a scoop of the Chocolate Peanut Butter gelato. Or, if you want something lighter and fruity, try the Strawberry Sorbet. Order a fresh blended shake or smoothie if you’re looking for a sweet treat you can enjoy on the go.
