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!

Best Ice Cream and Pies

My husband and I took our 2 teenagers to Louisville and thoroughly enjoyed our pies and milkshakes at the Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen. We had 4 different pies and they were all excellent and the milkshakes get made from their very special ice cream. Excellent!

A bit of a confusing ordering system, so if you are on a time budget and want something other than pie, ice cream, or cake, move on! Our 3 diners waited for 25 minutes on a non-busy evening to get our food, and the complication of getting a meal with dessert baffled each of us. When I saw the TripAdvisor... More

If you like homemade pies and/or ice cream, give this place a try. Their ice cream is in lots of great flavors and has that homemade taste & feel to it. Their pies are delicious and fresh. Trying to decide what to get is the toughest part.

The ice cream and pies/cookies are so delicious, but it's not a treat I could afford too often. My husband raved about the cinnamon ice cream. I love the turtle cheesecake.

We went downtown for dinner at Edward Lee's Milkwood, and finished with pie a la mode here... Pecan pie was not too sweet, chock full of chopped nuts, and the chocolate peanut butter fudge ice cream was decadent... felt TOO guilty afterwards!

I had the Carmel cake my husband had pie with Carmel. We both had Oreo ice cream and he had coffee. Everything was delicious, even the coffee, which means it was great because I don't really like coffee. If you are anywhere near here, you should stop, you won't regret it!

I ate too much at dinner to get pie but the ice cream was awesome - unbelievable selection of desserts! Super fun for our large group to hang out and enjoy!

We visited this establishment yesterday on our trip to Louisville, and I cannot fully express how delicious their treats were. Several people in our group got these enormous cookies that looked wonderful. I got a strawberry cupcake that was out of this world! We will definitely visit this bakery again when we are in the area!

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.
