Since 1982 we have been Louisville's bakery and local ice cream shop. We are the only ice cream shop in Kentucky making our ice cream 100% from scratch, no box mixes. We buy all of our dairy 100% local, from Louisville's only dairy. We pledge to not use dairy products with growth hormones. We make and bake all of our cakes, pies, cupcakes, cookies, icings and more. Family owned and run since 1982. Stop in, we look forward to seeing you!

One of our favorites

We love the banana pudding sugar cookies and three layer dessert. There's not much here I haven't enjoyed but as of now these get the top spots.

We went to one on 2232 Frankfort Ave and it was amazing. Of course the ice cream was to die for! The employees were very friendly and the atmosphere was relaxing. There was an upstairs Lounge where you can play ping pong or lounge on the sofas. There is a small parking lot right next to it but may not... More

An icon! It started on Bardstown Road in the Highlands. We would make a trip down there at least weekly after school let out. Now we can get to any of the locations easily. Always perfection!!!!

First time to Louisville and was told to try Derby Pie. Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen listed it on the menu. However, after finding this little shop, we were told they only have it during Derby week (and we were there a couple weeks afterward). Thought I'd try their ice cream instead but tasted a sample first. Not good... More

Lqchar thank you for your recent review. In regards to Derby Pie® we do not sell this pie nor do we have it on our menu, it is a registered trademark pie sold only through retailers. We are sorry to hear about the ice cream as it should not be as described and we wish to take care of this... More

I always stop at one of the locations of Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen when I'm in Louisville, sometimes I stop there twice! My favorite is their grape sherbet. I also always get a piece of chocolate chess pie to take home. I've tried several other ice cream flavors and desserts as well. It's the first place I recommend... More

This was awesome! It was our first time, and we saw several pies that we wanted to try. When we were going to get 2 each, the guy told us that it would be cheaper to get a whole pie....which would also result in 7 pieces. They let us mix & match 7 pieces to get a whole pie---and these... More

Great, amazing selection of pies. Ice cream selection very broad as well. Strawberry cake was YUM-O and do was Boston Cream pie. Grady way to cap an evening of good food.

Went here after a great dinner at Marks Feed Store. The ice cream was okay. It had a different consistency to it that made it a bit odd. Although the favors were good. Didn't try the pie so can't comment on that. Not sure I'd go back unless it was convenient. Also, parking around the store was terrible.

Their pies are why I come here. They also have tons of cakes and ice cream flavors available as well. Their pecan pie is my favorite, and the key lime is great as well. My hubby loves the chocolate pecan pie!

Some of the best pie I've eaten. The place is nothing special in terms of ambience, however, it's loaded with remarkable pies. Probably 30 different types of pie to choose from. If it's pie you crave, do yourself a favor and head there now! Always stop there when in Louisville. Not to miss!
