Ice cream.

Great home made ice cream. Worth the calories. Enjoyed sitting outside and watching the activities on Second Street.

Love their homemade ice cream! crazy flavors but you can stick with the old favorites too! Only drawback is cash only. Other than that the staff and choices are great :)

We went biking & on our way we saw this place. I ordered my fav cherry vanilla & it was so yummy. Problem is when I handed my credit card. The cashier, Melissa, told me it's only cash & that's when I saw the small sign. I went outside to ask if my husband by chance brought cash. Nope, I... More

Perfect place for a delicious ice cream. Nice selection of flavors, and ice cream is creamy and fresh. Prices are reasonable.

A very small ice cream shop but the ice cream has a very big taste. There are a few tables inside if you want to sit down, but I imagine the weekends are very crowded. I had the Oh Cookie (their version of cookies and cream). It was excellent.

For a hand-dipped ice cream shop, it's pretty average, but better and more quaint than a chain like Cold Stone or Dairy Queen. Worth stopping at if you are walking around downtown Lewes, but don't expect to be wowed.

Went here the first night and was disappointed in the choices, saw that it was advertised in the magazine in the hotel the second night and didn't know it was the same place. None of the flavors were offered that it said in the article. Nothing special.

Hi, Emma. Our focus is on quality, simple, old fashioned, ice cream flavors with a few specialty flavors that are rotated throughout the summer. We've served the same tasty 16 flavors for the last 43 years it's why we have generations of loyal customers coming back year after year. We do add to the specialty flavors that are rotated. Could...

Crowded, but well worth the wait! Great flavors. The Dutch chocolate is recommended for any chocoholic out there!

This is where we go for ice cream. We live in Lewes, like dining down town Lewes, and we'll stop here afterwards.
