Best Places for Summer Treats in OC

Best Summer Treats in OC

One of the best parts about summer is taking the kids for refreshing sweet treats. From ice cream to cookies to milk tea, these are some of the best places to take the kids for summer treats in Orange County.


Honey & Butter

Pokemon Honey & Butter

Honey & Butter
Irvine Spectrum Center
633 Spectrum Center Dr
Irvine, CA 92618

Honey & Butter has been our favorite place for summer treats this year. They not only have a super cute store, but they also make the most adorable themed macarons. We’ve had a Winnie-the-Pooh macaron and Pokemon macaron paired with homemade ice cream. I recommend coming early for their themed macaron’s because they are selling out fast – especially during the summer.



Dad’s Donuts
318 Marine Ave
Newport Beach, CA 92662

Nothing tastes more like summer than a frozen banana or Balboa bar from Dad’s Donuts. If you’re a local, then you know it is their hippo cookies that made them a favorite amongst locals. Take the kids for a bike ride around Balboa Island, and then cool off with one of these refreshing sweet treats.


Opening of the Hello Kitty Cafe in Irvine

Hello Kitty Cafe
670 Spectrum Center Dr
Irvine, CA 92618

Become immersed into the magical world of Hello Kitty at this fun pop-up store at the Irvine Spectrum. Enjoy sweet treats, delicious drinks that are all themed after Hello Kitty. Hurry, this pop-up store location is only here in OC for a limited-time.


The Loop

Drinks at The Loop

THE LOOP: Handcrafted Churros
9729 Bolsa Ave
Westminster, CA 92683

Our kids fell in love with this place the moment that it opened. Handcrafted churros and ice cream – oh my! We recommend coming to THE LOOP early because there is often a line that wraps around the corner with families eager to sink their taste buds into one of these delicious sweet treats. After one visit, I guarantee you’ll be hooked.


Milk Box Milk Tea

Milk Tea at Milk Box

Milk Box
Kaleidoscope Center
27741 Crown Valley Pkwy #329
Mission Viejo, CA 92691

Milk tea is one of my kids favorite refreshing treats ever since the opening of Milk Box in Mission Viejo. Your kids will fall in love with their boba! Milk Box is more than just milk tea, and they are creating cutting edge culinary drinks that are made with REAL ingredients.



Stax Cookie Bar
4187 Campus Drive #M174
University Center
Irvine, CA 92612

Cookies and ice cream collide at Stax Cookie Bar this summer. There is nothing better than a warm cookie paired with fresh ice cream, and Stax can customize your perfect summer sweet treat. It’s not just cookies and ice cream at Stax, but they also have waffles and gluten-free options.
