Find Champagne-Drenched Sorbet at this Forthcoming SMU Ice Cream Shop

Baldo’s will have a long list of frozen treats on deck + Sunday brunch


Ice cream is having its moment in Dallas right now, and another shop called Baldo’s is about to enter the fold.

The ice cream purveyor named for a “whimsical, grandfatherly figure” has already been operating as a push cart and delivery service, but this fall it will be taking over the former Goff’s Hamburgers space at 6401 Hillcrest Avenue, CultureMap reports.

The SMU grads behind the brand, Tyler Kleinert and Aldo Sandoval, also claim a culinary background in that Sandoval was formerly a pastry chef at Uchi/Uchiba and Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek. Sandoval will be lending his culinary talents, infusing ice cream with unusual, sometimes savory ingredients like prickly pear, jalapeño, and buttered bourbon.

Ice cream lovers can also look forward to affogato (for those not in the know, it’s a scoop of ice cream doused in a shot of espresso), plus champagne-drenched sorbet, pastries, and even a Sunday brunch. Diners dying to try Baldo’s goods before it opens its SMU-centric brick-and-mortar this fall can snag the treats at its mobile cart that frequents Klyde Warren Park and the Arboretum.
