The ice cream was delicious. I got a semi-sweet chocolate. Was so good and creamy. There were some unique flavors (Tiger's milk, which apparently tastes like Frosted Flakes) and some old stand byes. Highly recommend, it won't disappoint.

The Boston area has one of the highest rates of ice cream consumption per capita, and the area around Lexington (into Bedford, Carlile and beyond) has several homemade ice cream stands. This shop – in the center of Lexington – stands out as one of the best. The ice cream is consistent, and the staff of young people is really... More

If you're in Lexington on a warm day it is lovely to stop here for an ice cream treat. The staff were really friendly & welcoming and the ice cream is very, very good.

Many choices, all good. They let you taste anything you'd like to try and everything is sinfully delicious. For a later evening stop in Lexington Center, it's a great choice!

Great tasting ice cream. Great service. Great location. Stopped after a long day of touring in the rain. Wonderful teas to warm me up and delicious ice cream to go with!

While all their ice cream is excellent, their Coco-Joel is perhaps the best chocolate cream ever! At least according to my husband and a lot of people agree with him. My daughter loves their mango and blue berry ice creams. Hydox (cookies and cream) and vanilla are my son's favorite, while I usually go for their Kulfi. Their frappes are... More

I especially love their chocolate chip. They use premium large chocolate chunks! We have been getting my son's birthday cakes here for 19 years (he does not like regular cake, only Rancatore's ice cream cake, and he is now 19 years old!). Love it!
