Our first time visiting Lewes downtown and stopped here for a treat...good ice cream but Hopkins Farm was better...King's just didn't taste as homemade but glad we tried it anyway!

Amazing ice-cream! I love the coconut flavor! Great quality and nice and friendly atmosphere! I wish there were more sitting place outside to sit down and enjoy it more. :)

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.

We stopped in here the other day for some ice cream. We got 4 baby sized cones, which are still a pretty decent size. I like this size since you can get a snack & not feel so guilty. Plus it is the perfect size for the kids. We got the chocolate, oh cookie, butter pecan & black raspberry. We... More

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.

Really good ice cream, cute old fashioned feel. Nice treat as you walk around town. Some tables inside but it is counter service.

A trip to Lewes isn't complete without a visit to King's. My daughter and I and the 2 grandkids visit frequently. It certainly isn't cheap but from your first visit it just becomes a tradition. The staff is wonderful. Actually the last time we were there, my grandson walked outside and immediately dropped his scoop on the pavement. I went... More

Think of having your favorite ice cream flavor served by a friend and efficient young lady and while sitting in the cozy but pristine shop listening to the friendly banter of the tall Dutchman,who is the current owner, and the customers new and old who love the quality of the ice cream and good service. I left sated and happy.
