Very Unique Flavors, Outstanding Ice Cream

Wonderful ice cream parlor to visit. There are always many very unique flavors and it is so difficult to pick just one or two. Thankfully there is a chalkboard that gives a thorough description of the ingredients in each ice cream flavor and they are always willing to allow you to sample a... read more

I go every Sat during the Lockport Community Market. So many unique flavors to choose from. They give you a sample to help you decide.

Interesting combinations of ice cream. One had the one with donuts; tasted just like a glazed donut!!! AND reasonable prices.

Often overused the word unique does apply here. It takes a while to read the menu because you have not seen these flavors before. I got London Fog and it was fanastic, hard to describe. Great location next to the canal and locks.

Awesome ice cream in an easy to find location right near all the attractions. We enjoyed our ice cream in the gazebo next door. Try the whiskey brown sugar or the sampler. You won't be disappointed and your taste buds will thank you!

The cool little shop has a ton of awesome handcrafted flavors to choose from. It was hard to decide! I went with the PB epiphany. The description said "best PB Ice cream..." And I thought meh, they all say that. I took one taste and realized they weren't kidding. Awesome ice cream and not a bad price! Glad I moved... More

Here we have really high quality ice cream. The favors are interesting without being either ordinary, foolishly complicated or bland. Really loved it and am sorry it isn't anywhere among my usual travels. But for ice cream, it is worth a detour.

A great location for those visiting Lockport to enjoy a treat. Close by the cave tours, the locks and the visitor center. Creative with their flavors, they also have the regular flavors for the non adventurous.

This ice cream shop came highly recommended by the locals as we passed through town and the shop was worthy of their praise. So many unique flavors of ice cream to pick from and the three we tried were all delicious. Take note of their hours-when we were there they did not open until 4:30pm so no ice cream after... More

Lake Effect is a Lockport success with creative flavors added every season- try the new coffee and chai tea flavors
