Really, Cedar Falls is an ice cream lover's dream! With so many ice cream shops serving every flavor combo you can think of, you can enjoy a frozen treat every day of the year. From creamy soft serves and crunchy snowstorms at 4 Queens Dairy Cream to farm-fresh flavors at Hansen's Dairy, these locally owned shops are here to help you satisfy your cravings!


4 Queens

1310 W 1st Street, Cedar Falls

Choose their popular drive-through window or step inside to order their soft-serve ice cream and sit outside on benches and picnic tables. Enjoy one of their frozen coffee crunches, a Flavor Burst, a Snowstorm, smoothie, float, malt, sundae or shake. Yum!

Cedar City Creamery

110 Lincoln Street, Cedar Falls

Cedar City Creamery is conveniently located along Cedar Valley Trails just over the bridge north of the Cedar Falls Downtown District. Many sweet treats are available including Snow Creams, cones, shakes and malts, sundaes and homemade cookies. Did we mention they have a drive-through window? Grab a sweet treat to go and enjoy it by across the street at the Gateway Water Trail, our NEW river recreation area. 

Chocolaterie Stam

122 Main Street, Cedar Falls

Gelato! Lower in fat than ice cream, gelato is a creamier and flavor-packed option. Flavors rotate; however, they usually carry white chocolate raspberry, sea salt caramel, and double chocolate chip along with a variety of other delicious flavors. They also have delectable chocolates, cold and hot drinks and their own line of bagged coffees.  Look for their gelato cart at local events!

Cold Stone Creamery

6421 University Avenue, Cedar Falls

Made on the premises daily, Cold Stone ice cream is considered a premium ice cream (due to its butterfat of 12-14%). The choice of flavors may seem endless as they customize your ice cream selection with an array of mix-ins on a frozen granite stone.   


401 Viking Plaza Drive, Cedar Falls

Who hasn’t heard of Culver’s and their fresh, frozen custard? You can choose shakes, malts, floats and concrete mixers (custard mixed with your favorite toppings). They have a convenient drive-through window.
