Paleteria Neveria, 203 W. Jefferson

So you’re sad about the Blue Bell ice cream recall? Cheer up!

There are plenty of locally owned places in Oak Cliff to find frozen treats. Here are a few of our favorites.

1. Paleteria Neveria, 208 W. Jefferson

This ice cream shop opened not long ago down the block from the Texas Theatre, between a nail salon and a Church’s Chicken. The owner makes all the ice creams herself, including avocado, sour cherry and pine nut. Our favorite has pistachios, pecans, almonds and lime zest. It makes “Pecan Pralines ‘n’ Cream” seem boring.

2. La Original Michoacana, 415 W. Davis

One of the most popular ice cream spots in Oak Cliff, Michoacana also makes its own amazing ice cream flavors using fresh fruit, and it’s conveniently located in Bishop Arts.
