Our 13 year old daughter tells all of her friends that one of her favorite things to do is go to Kings for ice cream and walk around the historic well lit cemetery across the street in Lewes. A summer night with homemade ice cream strolling through a cemetery, who would have thought! Enjoy!

Several flavors of fresh ice-creme that are rich in flavor. A seasonal treat they carry is local eggnog for the holidays. Much better than most of the mass market brands..

A very good and pleasant ice cream shop with other candies too enjoy too. The ice cream is made by the family as is really good. The servings and fixings are great and the staff polite and helpful. If you love ice cream, don't miss this place.

We visit Kings every time we are in Lewes and are never disappointed. My mother always orders a chocolate soda and I always order ice cream. I have no favorite flavor. They're all good.

We love King's! We hit it every time we are in Lewes. My favorite is definitely the coconut! Only downfall is that they don't take cards. We never have cash, only debit. I always forget that until we are at the cash register and you have to run down a few doors to the ATM.

Stopped at King's for some ice cream. King's offer a nice selection of flavors. We were disappointed with the ice cream, especially considering it is homemade. The portions were small. There a better choices in Lewes for ice cream.

King's is a family favorite - try the mint chocolate chip...you won't be disappointed. The ice cream is always fresh and has a homemade quality taste.

King's Ice Cream is excellent home made ice cream in a charming setting. I only wish the portions were larger.

We stop here a few times a year and always enjoy their ice cream. Sometimes we buy it and bring it home too because they sell it as well. It wouldn't be Lewes without Kings Ice Cream! I have never been disappointed. You can also sit inside and enjoy your ice cream.
