Friday Find with Sara Hopkins Realtor | Episode 24 – Granny’s

Posted at 2:30 pm on September 18, 2020

An east side staple, Granny’s Sweet Freeze Shoppe is a small ice cream shop hidden in plain sight! You’ve likely driven down the frontage road, Hubbell Ave, dozens of time but if you’re not from the area it’s likely you don’t know what the cute building with the pink trim is. Having grown up on the east side of Des Moines, this was always a tradition.
This adorable ice cream shop has been family owned for the last 33 years. You may be surprised by how much this little shop offers! They have an extensive menu with everything from arctic swirls with dozens of flavors and toppings to choose from to slushies, banana splits, shaved ice and even Unicorn shakes! Every week offers a different ice cream “flavor of the week” so there’s always something new to try.
If you’re like me and want to hold on to summer as long as you can.. visit Granny’s this month. They are open through the end of September and weather depending possibly later!
