About Us

Over the Top is a national award-winning ice cream business located just outside of Des Moines in Pleasant Hill, Iowa. Our super premium ice cream is crafted with the best ingredients, sourced from local Iowa dairies and small businesses, and made in our family-owned shop. Our menu includes more than 31 fabulicious flavors, along with non-dairy and vegan options made fresh each week!  

Guests are greeted by the yummy smell of homemade waffle cones and bowls which are made fresh daily. Enjoy your favorite ice cream treat while watching our team manufacture our ice cream through a large picture window. We offer indoor and outdoor seating along with drive thru service and a private party room for birthday parties and other celebrations!

With every scoop, Over the Top supports local schools, churches, and non-profit organizations. We take pride in teaching our "Super Scoopers" the value of hard work. They may not scoop ice cream forever, but they learn skills to last a lifetime.

Enjoy our national award-winning ice cream. You will love every fabulicious spoonful and tell all your friends why they should try it too!
