To die for! Lots of flavors and all homemade. You won't be disappointed if you're an ice cream lover.

This is the best ice cream parlor ever. Located near the Erie Canal museum this artisan ice cream option was the recommendation of several locals, including the farmer’s market vendors lined up on the street outside. The flavor options are hard to describe. It could take 30 minutes to read through the menu, with each choice including a wide variety... More

This ice cream parlor is so cute and it's my favorite place to get ice ream. They have so many good and creative flavors to choose from. I always try a sample of a new flavor every time I go. My favorite flavors are peanut butter epiphany and omanhene chocolate. They are reasonably priced for the high quality homemade ice... More

Lake Effect ice cream is a hometown owned and operated parlor in downtown Lockport on the Erie Barge Canal. Right outside the parlor steps lead directly down to the locks so during the season, there is a historical point of interest to explore. A few hundred yards away is Lockport Cave's Tour - a added bonus to the location. The... More

Went here after dinner nearby and had a hard time selecting w flavor! The workers were excellent and offered tastes of any flavor. I finally settled on 2 in a dish. My wife got a single flavor and we shared - they were all good. Good thing it's not closer or we'd be there a lot more!

This ice cream shop is adorable and loaded with choices to meet every taste bud! I had the Guinness flavored ice cream and thought that I actually had a Pint in my hand...delicious but without the alcohol. Be prepared to read an extensive flavor board in order to decide which flavor to enjoy. The staff are very personable and friendly... More

Something for everyone. But, this brand is for the real ice cream aficionado. Amazing flavors that are very Buffalo/western ny. The texture and creaminess is truly a work of art. The mouth feel has a smoothness even after being in your own freezer. Crazy crazy good, also found in local Wegmans by the pint.

Very nice place. Very good ice-cream and the portions are huge. We had 2 scoops each and could not finish it. So if you are not very hungry, ask for one scoop.
