5 Ice Cream & Cool Sweet Treat Hotspots To Try in El Paso

If you’re looking to beat the heat this summer with ice cream or a cool sweet treat, then you’ll want to check out these five hot spots in El Paso. From classic ice cream shops to trendy new spots, there’s something for everyone here.

Boozy Ice Cream Barlor

If you’ve ever had to choose between a cocktail and dessert, Boozy Ice Cream Barlor offers exactly what you’ve been craving. Perfect for a casual date night, this bar offers hand-crafted ice creams infused with beer, liquor, or wine. We recommend the signature S’mores creamtail. Guests must be 21+ to enter.

Cereal Killers

This family-friendly spot is great if you’re a cereal lover. While you’re at Cereal Killers, opt for milkshakes blended with ice cream and your favorite childhood cereals like Fruity Pebbles. They also have a wide selection of cold treats like ice cream balls, warm brownies with ice cream, and cold brew coffee.

Coffee Box

Located in a stacked freight container across from San Jacinto Plaza, Coffee Box specializes in coffee and teas to-go, but they also offer a collection of new fruit-forward summer drinks (like the Spicy Mango and Blue Raspberry Frescada), iced lattes, and frappes.

La Michoacana Snacks and Ice Cream

When you have a craving for something sweet and salty, opt for La Michoacana Snacks and Ice Cream. This family-friendly location offers everything from pistachio milkshakes to Paletas (fresh fruit popsicles).

La Perla

If you’re looking for an upscale date night experience in downtown El Paso, don’t miss La Perla, our rooftop experience at The Plaza Hotel Pioneer Park. The new summer menu features elevated sweet treats by Pastry Chef Rojo such as the Perla Dots (frozen blueberry yogurt dots) and Boozy Raspa Helada (shaved ice with Chambord-raspberry syrup). Reservations are required. Must be 21+ years to enter after 9 p.m.
