Ogden’s summer got off to a wet start, but we’re being rewarded now with some glorious warm weather.
The kind of weather that makes you want to stroll down the Ogden River Parkway in your flip-flops and Westwood Sunglasses licking an ice cream cone.
Here is the scoop on the hottest spots to get your cool sweet-tooth fix this summer while visiting Ogden.
Farr Better Ice Cream
274 East 21st Street, 21st St, Ogden, UT 84401
Take a step back in time to 1929 at one of the oldest continually operating ice cream shops in America when you go to Farr’s. This popular family-friendly fudge and ice cream shop keeps more than 600 different ice cream recipes under lock and key, and has at least 75 different flavors in stock at all times. My go to flavor is the mint chocolate chip, the chips are finely grated and the perfect combination of mint and dark chocolate will tantalize your taste buds.
750 Ogden Canyon, Ogden, UT 84401
Ice cream, shakes, sundaes and pies, you can enjoy all these sweet next to the Ogden River at The Oaks Restaurant. On a hot summer day it’s nice to take a double scoop of Farr’s chocolate cookie dough and head out to the riverside seating and enjoy endless views of Ogden Canyon.
Zeppe’s Italian Water Ice
883 N Washington Blvd, Ogden, UT 84404
If Italian ice and old fashioned custard is more your style, you can’t beat the selection at Zeppe’s Italian Water Ice. Made fresh daily, Italian water ice is a frozen dessert that has the texture and consistency of ice cream, but is dairy free. Zeppe’s has over 30 rotating flavors with 10 flavors of water ice on the menu each day. Enjoy the best of both worlds (Italian water Ice and custard) with a gelata, my personal favorite, is the chocolate custard with coconut Italian water ice…YUM!
Sub Zero Ice Cream & Yogurt
2350 Kiesel Ave, Ogden, UT 84401
When science and food come together you get Sub Zero Ice Cream & Yogurt. When you walk into this parlor fresh berries, dark chocolate, cream and other goodies await for the picking. Throw all this into a bowl add some liquid nitrogen and enjoy your own custom ice cream creation!
A Good Life Café
274 E 2500 S, Ogden, UT 84401
If you are looking for a healthy alternative, but still craving something cold and sweet head downtown to A Good Life Café & Juice Bar. Here you can find whole fresh juices, real fruit smoothies and fresh wheat grass shots. Choose something from their list or make your own, the flavors are endless!
