Special....very special !!!

We visited San Antonio in August and had Brindles ice cream for dessert at a restaurant. It was so amazing that we had to have more before we left town. It was summer and hot, so there were lots of customers even on a Sunday. Staff was generous and patient serving samples. I'm picky about ice cream... read more

My boyfriend and I came here on a Sunday evening and were overwhelmed with all the delicious flavor choices there were. It took us a good fifteen minutes to decide but the staff was super patient and helpful! We tasted about five flavors each. I ended up going with the Azteca (Mexican chocolate flavor) and pistachio and I was not... More

Excellent tasting ice cream, and very reasonably prices. Friendly staff, great portions, and its all homemade! A perfect hang out spot for family, there are a few tables out front too!. We had the cheesecake ice cream with strawberries and cookies and cream. We could have sat all day and ate ice cream!

For years we have heard ice cream lovers rave about Brindles ice cream and finally made the trip to the place in a high end strip mall along I-10 at Heubner Road. Two separate freezers...one for gelatos and the other for traditional ice creams. The butter fat content makes its location (close to the medical district!) opportune but the flavorings... More

If you love the wonderful old-time ice cream parlors of years gone by, you will LOVE Brindles. The quality of ice cream is like nothing I've ever experienced. Words like "Rich and Creamy" just don't do it justice! But what really sets Brindles apart is the surprising "pairings" of unique ingredients that result in flavors that make me want to... More

Love the waffle bowls! And the variety of flavors! We sampled Amaretto Gelato and Red Velvet Cake but decided on Moose Tracks, Orange Dreamsicle, Biga and Chocolate! Yumm-o! We were hoping this would be in the style of an ice cream parlor, but we were satisfied with the ambiance. And the service was quick and friendly. We'll be back!!

I visited San Antonio last March, I know...this took me a while, but I just wanted to say this place serves great ice cream! I love ice cream, but I usually stick to my favorites. When I saw the lemon basil flavor, I had my doubts at first, but then I thought "I like basil and I like lemon, what... More

Brindles does gelato right! The first place I've ever encountered Cardamom flavored ice cream, and it was a delight! Our party of four enjoyed a variety of shakes and gelato cups and every one was pleased. We relaxed a long while with friends before catching a flight home on a Monday afternoon, and sat on a cozy couch and easy... More
