Worth the wait

Very busy ice cream shop on the main retail street in Historic Downtown. If you are lucky you can get a seat out front on the benches and people watch. Tasty ice cream, it must be homemade.

Kings Ice Cream is in a cute little town called Lewes, Delaware. They make homemade ice cream that is wonderful! They have numerous flavors and give great portions. The kids that work there are very helpful and friendly. It was a jail a long time ago and there are claims that it was haunted as well.

Simply great ice cream...! If you find that your path brings you to Lewes, DE I strongly recommend that you stop for a cone of Kings fresh made ice cream. It has been a favorite of my family for over twenty years.

King's is part of our annual Lewes vacation tradition, but the ice cream this year was just not up to par, so we only went once. Disappointing.

The ice cream shop was a quick walk from our hotel, the Inn at Canal Square, and we enjoyed having ice cream there more than once. The service was quick, and friendly Obviously it's a local favorite I can see why.

The homemade ice cream is scrumptious! I had the butter brickle, which was by far the best I ever tasted. I hear the raspberry is the best, and plan to go back to try it. One of the best things is that I can get a little cone with a small scoop atop for $2, just the right size for... More

Stopped in Kings the other day after having lunch on Second Street. We each got a kiddie cone, even the adults. I think it is the perfect amount of ice cream! Plus it is only $2 each. We got oh cookie, mint chocolate chip, blueberry and black raspberry. Everyone liked their cone. Service was fast, but could be a little... More

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

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