We read they served a pumpkin pecan ice cream. So when ordering, the clerk said they just made a fresh batch and asked if we would mind waiting for it to soften. In the meantime we ordered their peanut butter swirl ice cream. It was so creamy and delicious! When the pumpkin ice cream was ready to eat, we couldn't... More

Absolutely the best ice cream on the Connecticut coast. Hand-made in house...and the flavors...WOW. Also a good place for lunch. Soups are made every day with fresh local (when possible) ingredients. Sandwiches, wraps and salads are out of this world. They roast their own meat (beef, chicken, etc) for the sandwiches...and again, locally sourced when possible. Feels like home.

The ice cream is very rich – YUM! The prices were very reasonable, and the scoops were a generous size. We loved the pumpkin caramel pecan pie! It’s amazing with chunks of pie crust in it. Friendly & helpful service. Great atmosphere…Will be back!!!

Excellent ice cream. Pleasant service. Generous portions. Cash only. Parking on Lyme Street, which fortunately does not have a lot of traffic.

I love all the different and creative flavors they have. So many of them seasonal and you need to catch them when the ingredients are fresh. I love the peach ice cream. The pumpkin caramel pecan pie is amazing with chunks of pie crust in it. Ginger snap is a favorite as well as the Chai. The sandwiches are amazing.... More

We have plenty of ice cream shops to choose from in our area. The Old Lyme Ice Cream Shoppe is just such a treat. We come here once a week for sure during the summer. Every flavor we have tried is delicious. Their hot fudge and carmel sundaes are the best. My all time favorite ice cream is Salted Carmel... More

The ice cream is very rich - they do not skimp on the cream. The prices were very reasonable, and the scoops were generous. We loved the white chocolate cappucino and the black raspberry flavors here.

Quaint little ice cream (and cafe!) shop in "downtown" Old Lyme. Makes their own ice cream with natural ingredients. Rich and tasty like ice cream was meant to be. Friendly, helpful service. Great atmosphere. Didn't try the sandwiches but they sound delicious. But the ice cream is not to be missed!!!

Really excited that OLICS is under old management. Great shoreline stop for the whole family. Toasted Coconut is and always will be my favorite. The shop has a great ambiance and not to mention great food! Come on down for a great time, family time, couple time, ANY time!
