With locations in Chandler, Mesa and Ahwatukee, Snowtime is a dessert cafe that serves magical memories in a bowl, a plate, and a fish (more on that later). I recently came here and had Bingso (Korean shaved ice) for the first time, and it was magnificent. Essentially, just a bowl of shaved ice (shaved to the consistency of soft snow) with toppings, every spoon, every bite reminded me of my childhood playing in the snow and eating snow for the first time. Really, who doesn't like snow? Just say the word and a smile comes to your face. When I think of snow, I personally think of winter wonderlands, snowball fights, and sliding down hillsides. Shouldn't food be that fun? With fun names that will tickle your brain and wet your appetite like Golden Dust, Tira-Miss-You, and Espres-Snow, my personal favorite Bingso dishes are Matcha-Love and Sweet Sunset. Their toppings here are fresh, and their ingredients are high end. At Snowtime they call their Bingsu "Snow". Either way, you can say Snow, Bingso, or shaved ice they will know what you mean. Snowtime also serves drinks too like Espressos, Fresh Leaf Teas, Specialty Drinks, and Milk Teas. In addition, they offer Soft Serve which you can get in a cup or a cool looking crunchy fish cone. Finally, remember to add the word Bingso to your everyday foodie vernacular. It will be a life long obsession during hot summer days when water is just too boring and ice cream and froyo too mundane (just joking, I love ice cream and froyo too). Check out Snowtime at their three locations!
Although this place is better known for their sweet desserts, I'd like to point out that they also serve a high quality espresso with consistency. I wanted to wait and review them until I had triple-checked their consistency and I am pleasantly surprised. Now counting my third visit, I have drank the double espresso, twice hot and once over ice. There is an appreciated level of consistency in their flavor which I admire as a coffee enthusiast. It's got toasty, caramel butter notes, leaning on ashen bark, but not too heavily. (hint: your taste buds will have their back blown out if you have the espresso served affogato-style over their ice cream) My friends always have the Nutella-filled fried waffle fish and the custard filled mini fishes, which they rave about! Can't go wrong there! Would highly recommend as a sweet tooth type of place, or as stated earlier, a hidden coffee shop.
Really good little dessert place right here. Really liked the strawberries and cream signature dessert I got but next time I will try the drinks. They look amazing.
Banana split would have been incredible had they gave me more than a teaspoon full of ice cream. All the other ingredients were there a touch more ice cream would have been 5 stars. If i choose to break my diet I'd definitely go back though.
What a yummy treat! The servings are huge. The snow is so fine and yummy toppings were plentiful. The staff was super friendly and it was clean. Lots of options.
Finally tried this place and I?m glad I did. The space is clean and trendy. The staff is super friendly and kind. The tiramisu ice was insanely delicious, like nothing I?ve tried before. The menu selection is wide and varied. There?s something for everyone. The prices are comparable to Starbucks drinks, but you truly get what you pay for.
This place is amazing! It took me a long time to figure out what I wanted, because many of the items I was not familiar with. However, they have a TV displaying several of the items, as well as pictures in the restaurant, to help guide your decision making. The employees were SUPER nice, and the restaurant itself is very clean and welcoming. They have some chairs and tables outside too, so you can enjoy your ice cream outside. The prices are little high, BUT even the "small" is HUGE, so can't really complain. Will definitely be back.
This was excellent! The cone was perfect, fresh, warm, thick but lite. Usually not a chocolate ice cream fan but this was subtle and delicious. The employees were so sweet and very patient with my indecisiveness They were very busy after I arrived and the only negative comment I have is that they mixed up mine and my friend's order ... Her filling in my cone and my toppings in her ice cream.
One of the best reason to visit Chandler is to experience Snowtime. We offer a great time for people everywhere and our food keeps people coming back for more.
