Here are the best places to find gelato and other Italian-style ice cream treats in the Natural State.

1. Dolce Gelato, Hot Springs, AR

This hot spot (or should we say cold spot) in Hot Springs has been passionately crafting Italian ice cream since 2007, when gelato became a reality in this iconic city. When you walk in the door at Dolce Gelato, you are greeted by a cozy atmosphere filled with the aroma of freshly made gelato and freshly ground coffee beans. One glance at the colorful display of gelato is enough to make your mouth water! Dolce Gelato features more than 24 varieties of homemade Italian-style ice cream that are available daily.

2. ZAZA Fine Salad & Wood Oven Pizza Co., Conway and Little Rock, AR

The folks at ZAZA’s are up bright and early each day making fresh gelato. Made with whole milk rather than cream, the gelato served here has half of the fat as American-style ice cream. In addition to milk, ZAZA’s gelato is made with other premium seasonal ingredients like, berries, nuts, all natural cane syrup, and fruits.

3. 3 Crazy Berries, Fayetteville, AR

Conveniently located on N. Crossover in Fayetteville, 3 Crazy Berries has made a name for itself in the Arkansas gelato scene. This popular frozen-yogurt shop is best-known for, well, for frozen-yogurt. But with flavors like yellow cake batter and red raspberry, you can bet the gelato at 3 Crazy Berries is good too! 

4. JavaPrimo Coffee House, Arkadelphia and Hot Springs, AR

While the available flavors vary, the gelato and sorbet served here is made fresh onsite each day. The Italian ice cream at JavaPrimo is so popular that it is also available for purchase by the liter.
