Enjoy Sweet Treats from Houston Dessert Shops

waffles and ice cream with chocoalte sauce | dessert shops in Houston

There are plenty of basic ice cream shops out there, but our apartments in West Houston have a few of the best dessert shops in the whole city nearby. You can cool down and make your taste buds very happy with milkshakes, gourmet gelato, and funnel cakes or waffles filled with ice cream.


At Krave, you can have a cone made of fresh funnel cake filled with premium ice cream and yummy toppings. Try the H-town which has tons of cookie dough, whipped cream, and chocolate drizzle. The Drama Queen features red velvet funnel cake, and ice cream topped with strawberries, brownie, whipped cream, and chocolate drizzle. You can customize your own creation by choosing your favorite flavors and toppings. They also have delicious milkshakes, as well as deep-fried Oreos, Twinkies, and strawberries.

Bubble Egg

The waffle cones at Bubble Egg look different than you’re used to because they are made in a honeycomb waffle maker. They are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. You can also choose fillings to be baked inside to make it either savory or sweet. Add chicken or a hot dog, and you’ve got a yummy lunch. If you’re craving dessert, fill it with ice cream, fruit, or mochi. Take a friend, so you can order two and split them. You’ll also find refreshing drinks like teas, frozen fruity slushes, mocktails, and more.


Houston is lucky to have a locally owned shop that serves fresh, handmade gelato and sorbet. SweetCup opened in 2012 and has been in such high demand that Whole Foods in the area started carrying SweetCup pints.  Their pints can also be found at all Central Markets in Texas. On any given day, you’ll find about 15 flavors of gelato available out of the 200 they make. The sorbets are dairy-free and vegan friendly. 

Nothing beats a delicious frozen treat from one of these Houston dessert shops. For more luxurious desserts, don’t miss some of the best chocolate shops in town. Contact us to schedule a tour of the fantastic floor plans and community amenities available at our apartments in Houston.
