Hopkins farm ice cream tastes better, but King's store smells better than the farm although the milk/cream smell can overwhelm you some times.. There is a nice variety of flavors. The Lewes location is on the main drag near Agave and Half Full.

A great place to stop for ice cream if you are in Lewes. The service was a bit underwhelming as the student staff crowd seemed to be more absorbed in chatting to each other than taking orders but that can be forgiven as the ice cream is great and obviously deserves its popularity amongst locals and visitors.
