If you want a sweet treat, you may have considered visiting Class 502 Rolling Ice Cream in Houston, TX.
Located in Katy, it’s a cute little place with some tasty desserts, including rolled ice cream. In Thailand, rolled ice cream has a slightly different texture than regular ice cream. Creating it involves hand-rolling ice cream into beautiful spiral shapes, then stacking them vertically in a bowl.
Once you’ve added toppings and sauces, you’re left with a beautiful, Instagram-worthy dessert.
There aren’t many places in Houston creating rolled ice cream just yet, so if you want to try it, Class 502 is worth a visit. Here’s what we think about it, from the food and drinks they offer to the amenities and customer service.

#1. Ice Cream
Of course, the star of the show is the rolling ice cream. With some amazing flavor, the rolled ice cream has a gorgeous texture. The fruit flavors are particularly moreish while still feeling light. We’d recommend the strawberry and peach combo for the ultimate summer treat. Alternatively, go for cookies and cream if you want something a bit more chocolatey.
Here are the flavors you can try:
- Mango Madness
- Strawberry and Peach
- Banana Split
- Cookie and Cream
- Strawberry and Mango
The ice cream is hand-rolled and is delicious and full of flavor.
You can choose from a range of toppings (with new toppings added regularly) and sauces or syrups.
You can also get some amazing gelato here, with a vast array of incredible flavors, from tiramisu to peach to caramel to coconut. You can also get toppings for $0.50 each, and again, there’s a huge amount of choice here, from gummy bears to fruit to chocolate to regular sprinkles.
#3. Special Drinks
You can get some interesting drinks at Class 502. Try the fruit tea or the Mango Nada (a delicious cold mango drink). Or, you can grab a yogurt drink. For example, the peach yogurt drink is delicious. If you want something refreshing, try the thirst-quenching watermelon juice.
There’s nothing better than a smoothie or slushie on a hot day. You can get the following smoothies or slushies at Class 502 Rolling Ice Cream:
- Strawberry and banana
- Mixed Berry
- Strawberry Cheesecake
- Pina Colada
- Oreo Cookie
They’re refreshing and delicious, so well worth a try if you want something lighter than ice cream.
#5. Bubble Waffles
You can get some incredibly delicious bubble waffles here. Go for the standard or chocolate flavors, and then choose some ice cream. The friendly staff will be able to recommend a good combo. If you want something chocolatey, we’d recommend the chocolate bubble waffles with cookie ice cream and Oreos with chocolate sauce on the top. Delicious!
You can choose from an Americano, Mocha, Latte, or Caramel Macchiato if you want a coffee. Or you can go for a tea, including Jasmine Milk Tea and the delicious Sea Salt Green Tea.
They also offer sparkling drinks, soda, or water if you want.
