It is summer, making it the perfect time to indulge in that quintessential experience of slowing down at one of the best ice cream shops in Reno on a hot day to make you feel like a kid again.

Whether your tastes run from the classic or the cool Taoiyaki Ice cream, to gelato, and mochi, these ice cream shops near your Reno apartment offer plenty of top-notch scoops. 

Bubble Tea Station Café

1495 E Prater Way #111, Sparks, NV 89434
Located in nearby Sparks, Nevada Bubble Tea Station serves delicious ice cream served in a Japanese Taiyaki waffle cone. 

Bibo Greddo Gelato

717 S Center St, Reno, NV 89501


Bibbo Greddo Gelato offers truly exquisite handmade gelato in a variety of flavors! This Italian treat is denser and richer than American Ice cream because it contains a higher volume of milk and is churned at a slower rate. 

Mochi is one of our favorite frozen treats, but other than being offered in some Japanese restaurants and Whole Foods, we could not find any top-notch spots for this frozen treat, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out. These two websites have some great DIY mochi kits.
