If you have a sweet tooth, you have to visit these places in Gilbert


The soft serve ($2.50) is almost irresistible at Topo, even if you’re not a dessert person. Choices are vanilla, prickly pear, or twist. Um, prickly pear, please. What results is a tall spiral of mauve in a cute little cone. It’s so pretty it pains you to take a bite, but that bite is heavenly. The fruity soft serve is incredible to the last crunchy bite of the cone’s base. Dips are a fun accompaniment at 50 cents a pop. Choose from chocolate, lime, or prickly pear again. However, the soft serve is good enough to walk away sans dip.

Petersen’s Ice Cream & Cafe

The adorable Petersen’s Ice Cream & Café has two locations — one in Chicagoland, and one in Gilbert. The ice cream shop was started by Hans Petersen in 1919, and now, you can scoop up even classic ice cream flavors like chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry while seated in pink and blue chairs on the sidewalk along Gilbert Road. For the more adventurous, additional flavors include Mackinac Island Fudge, Caramel Ripple, and New York Cherry.


Rocket Fizz

It’s not all ice cream when it comes to a sugar rush in the Heritage District. Sneak back to Rocket Fizz Soda Pop & Candy Shop for mounds of by-the-piece candy and single-serving sodas. There are also toys and wacky signs, so if you bring kids in here, you’ve officially been warned.


See you there!
