Kansas City Ice Cream Shops Offer a Sweet Escape

What tastier way to beat summer heat than with a double scoop of something ice-cold and refreshing?

It’s hard to go wrong with a frosty treat, but classic desserts like ice cream are even more satisfying than ever thanks to Kansas City’s creative shops. Whether you’re stopping by Glacé on Main Street or Town Center Crossing, where you’ll find everything from peanut butter ice cream to pineapple cilantro sorbet, scouting out the latest flavor creation at Westport’s beloved Murray’s Homemade Ice Creams, or reaching for Slurries at Foo’s Fabulous Frozen Custard in Brookside or Leawood, one thing is for sure: Your day will be a little sweeter.
