Where to Find the Best Ice Cream in the Treasure Valley

Last updated May 03, 2022 by Totally Boise

What's a more iconic duo than hot Idaho summer months and local ice cream? Our superb partners at Unbottled got the scoop on a complete list of ice cream shops in the Treasure Valley serving up delicious dairy treats.  


If ice cream isn't your thing, don't fret—we also added plenty of other options which serve all types of frozen treats. Check out the list below brought to you by Unbottled. They’ve compiled a list of shops from Boise, Meridian, Eagle, Nampa, and all across the Treasure Valley.  



A Boise staple, The STIL started humbly at their Broad St. location, and has quickly expanded into multiple locations. Their signature flavors are available in some local grocery stores. Another popular Boise ice cream shop is Goody’s Soda Fountain. Since 1997, the Hyde Park parlor and its handmade ice cream and soda has been a Boise tradition. If you’re craving something a little different, check Blue Cow Frozen Yogurt. Their cozy shop in the East End of Boise is a great place to walk, bike, or drive to for a creamy dessert.
