When the temperature is soaring, there’s nothing more refreshing than a cup of flavorful shaved ice.

If this sounds good to you, the best destinations for shaved ice in Dallas include:


At Bingbox, the treats have the texture of freshly fallen snow. The shop specializes in Korean shaved ice and strives to change the way people feel about dessert. The flavors are made using a unique mixture and a state-of-the-art instant freeze technology. This means you won’t find the creations at Bingbox anywhere else. Choices include strawberry, honeydew, and Thai tea. 

NOLA Snoballs 

Founded by a New Orleans native, NOLA Snoballs brings the city’s famous shaved ice treats to Dallas. The shop’s logo features the iconic tiles found around the streets of the Crescent City. Maureen grew up eating snoballs and decided she wanted to share her favorite treat with the people of Dallas. Guests rate it 4.5-stars on Yelp as they enjoy the setting, friendly service, and variety of flavors. Choices include black cherry, cotton candy, and wedding cake. 

The selection also includes Aunt Sally’s pralines and root beer in vintage-style bottles. 

Snow Baby

Snow Baby boasts that its treats are “fresh, creamy, and uniquely delicious.” The desserts feature thinly shaved ice sheets layered like freshly fallen snow. They’re topped with fresh fruit and other goodies and drizzled with sweetened condensed milk. All of the flavors are made with organic ingredients, many of which are sourced locally. Year-round choices include coconut, coffee bean, and purple berry blast. They can be topped with strawberries, sliced almonds, dark chocolate shavings, and much more.
