Aglamesis Bro's

Oakley Square, 3046 Madison Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45209

Now in the third and fourth generations of family ownership, Aglamesis Bro's blends classic Old World recipes with modern manufacturing methods. The shop's namesakes, Thomas and Nicholas, opened their first location in 1908 after emigrating from Greece. Tiffany lamps, antique tin ceiling, and genuine Portuguese marble fountain top create a charmingly nostalgic ambiance. In addition to premium ice cream and Italian ices, the shop sells a variety of gourmet chocolates to satisfy your sweet tooth. Hours are 10 a.m. - 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. - 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and noon - 9 p.m. Sunday.

Simply Rolled Ice Cream

32 W. 12th St., Cincinnati, OH 45202

At Simply Rolled Ice Cream, watching your order being prepared is almost as much fun as eating it. In a method inspired by Thai street vendors, ice cream is made right in front of your eyes using a liquid base flattened onto a frozen pan. Once your chosen mix-ins are added, the ice cream is shaped into a roll and placed in a bowl or waffle taco shell. Choose one of their signature combos, such as Buckeye Madness or Salty Caramel Pretzel, or create your own from more than 20 mix-ins. Simply Rolled is open 4. - 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 4 - 10 p.m. Friday, 2 - 10 p.m. Saturday, and 2 - 9 p.m. Sunday.

Buzzed Bull Creamery

1408 Main St., Cincinnati, OH 45202

The ice cream at Buzzed Bull Creamery might be the greatest science experiment ever. Watch as they use liquid nitrogen on fresh, high-quality ingredients to make your order on the spot. Try specialties such as Death by Chocolate and Tiger Stripes, or become a mad scientist and brew up your own combination of mix-ins. If you're really looking for a "buzz," check out the ice cream lattes at the espresso bar or add a shot of liquor. Can't decide? Sample the monthly rotating "flights" that include four servings of special 21-and-over flavors. Hours are 4 - 9 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 4 - 11 p.m. Friday, 3 - 11 p.m. Saturday, and 4 - 9 p.m. Sunday.

Hello Honey

1530 Madison Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45206

Hello Honey's cozy East Walnut Hills storefront has made a big splash in the neighborhood. But for owners Brian and Nitima Nicely, things haven't changed that much from the days when they were turning out small-batch ice cream for family and friends from their kitchen counter. They still make everything from scratch, right down to the vegan marshmallows brûléed with a mini-blowtorch. Creative flavors such as Berry Earl Grey, Honey Lavender, and Brown Butter Caramel rotate to take advantage of seasonal ingredients. Hello Honey is open Thursday through Sunday from 1 - 9 p.m. 

Sweet Hunter

1028 Delta Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45208

Take your taste buds on a trip to Europe with a visit to Sweet Hunter for gelato, Italy's version of ice cream. With half the fat and calories of ice cream plus high protein and calcium content, gelato lets you indulge your sweet tooth without any guilt. Sweet Hunter also offers sorbetto, which is a fruit-based, non-dairy frozen dessert that's comparable to sherbet. Pair your gelato or sorbetto with a French macaron, a light, crispy gluten-free cookie filled with buttercream or fruit. Sweet Hunter is open weekdays from 1 - 10 p.m. and weekends from noon - 10 p.m.

Nick Ganim, owner of the Pendleton Parlor, has sugar hard-coded into his DNA. Since the 1920s, Nick's family has been serving up sweet treats around Cincinnati with shops such as the Mount Washington Creamy Whip & Bakery and the Old Milford Parlor. Like the other shops, Pendleton Parlor serves luscious soft-serve ice cream in vanilla, chocolate, and swirl, which can be customized with mix-ins and toppings. Edible cookie dough, in four classic flavors, is a recent addition that's been a big hit. Hours are noon - 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. - 11 p.m. Friday through Sunday.

The Dipper 

6918 Plainfield Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45236

Remember those summer days of your childhood when you'd ride your bikes to the local soft-serve stand for a refreshing cone? Share that joy with your own kids when you stop by The Dipper. Eating a chocolate-, butterscotch- or cherry-dipped soft-serve cone is just as much fun as ever. Kids love the blue soft-serve as well as fun flavors like Bubble Gum and Green Apple. Pump up the volume with a Frost Bite, which includes Oreos, Snickers, and your other favorite mix-ins. The Dipper even has pup cups for Fido! Indulge in some people-watching to go with your ice cream while you relax at one of the nearby picnic tables. Hours are 2 - 9 p.m. weekdays and noon - 9 p.m. weekends.

The unusual name isn't the only thing different about Yagööt, which is owned by Cincinnati's iconic Busken Bakery. In a world of self-serve shops offering sweet froyo, Yagöö is a full-service shop where the frozen yogurt has an invigorating tartness. Try one of their signature bowls, including options such as peanut butter and berry, or mix and match toppings to create your own. Yagööt's ice-free smoothies are equally popular, especially with a shot of immunity-boost powder. Hours are 11 a.m. - 8 p.m. daily except Friday and Saturday, when doors close at 9 p.m.
