Discover Detroit's top ice cream shops ranked by Yelp in 2024, showcasing the creamiest and most crave-worthy options available.

Ice cream is a treat that can be enjoyed all year round, although the volume produced during the hotter months signals otherwise. The majority of ice cream and other frozen desserts in the U.S. are made between March and August, with July being the busiest month of all, according to the Department of Agriculture.

Ice cream shops everywhere have made it their job to serve up the smoothest, creamiest, and most crave-able options. To find out who’s doing the best job of it, Stacker compiled a list of the highest-rated ice cream shops in Detroit using data from Yelp. Data is as of June 14, 2024.
