After dinner in Plano a group of friends and I decided to try some local place for dessert and found this place through Trip Advisor. Amazing ice cream that is local and home made! The prices aren't bad and the ice cream was amazing. The owner took time to welcome us and it was nice to see her greet some... More

A really good ice cream shop. Love that is in a neighborhood shopping center. It is surrounded by restaurants so you can go over after dinner. Really interesting flavors.

Went out for Valentines a few days early. Beautiful warm day in February and decided to try a different dessert place. TA had Sweet Firefly in the area. Reviews were good so we gave it a try. Small homemade ice cream shop in a neighborhood shopping center. The mango sorbet and raspberry sorbet were great. My husband and son got... More

For YEARS, we've not had any good small shops in Canyon Creek Square. This is an ice cream/sherbet/candy shop that is much appreciated by the kids and seniors in the community, along with everyone else you see lining up there. I loved the lemon ice cream thingie and Hubby got some sort of strawberry he liked. Portions are somewhat smaller... More

Love the homemade flavors especially on hot summer nights. Been there several times and loved every flavor I've tried. Not much room to sit down in or outside shop is the only drawback.

I can not say enough about this place. The roots of Sweet Firefly are as sweet as the ice cream. Rarely will you not find a line out the door, but the quick wait is well worth it. The sea salt & carmel ice cream is earth shattering, the birthday cake is worth its weight in a celebration all its... More

Delicious homemade ice cream with many different flavors! Our friends recommended Sweet Firefly during a recent visit to Dallas/Richardson. The shop is located in a small quaint plaza with different restaurants and shops. It's in the middle of a residential neighborhood, which added character to the plaza. Highly recommended.

Great selection of their unique and some odd ice creams. It is worth a try to taste the flavors and then pick as they are very helpful and friendly. It is in a neighborhood strip center setting, but you will have to be going there as it is not one you can see from the street. A great find.

Delicious, homemade ice cream! Great unique flavors of ice cream, shaved ice and a fun variety of candy!

Got some really unique flavors for a reasonable price, and we'll go back for sure. A little hard to find, but worth the effort!
