Take a break with ice cream - and kosher!

Delicious ice cream selections and old fashioned soda fountain ice cream shop. Highly recommended for a refreshing snack any time of the day!

I had seen Graeter's pints in grocery stores when I first moved to Ohio, but I never thought to try any until recently. After falling in love with their Dark Chocolate Gelato, I decided to go to one of the shops and try their other flavors for myself. I was not disappointed. Honestly, I have yet to find a flavor...

I first visited this place 30 years ago with our daughter and went again with her and her family just recently. The decor, from its antique ceiling fans to the pictures on the wall, exudes history and tradition. The ice cream is just wonderful, creamy and full of flavor. It doesn't seem to matter which flavor one chooses --they are... More

The ice cream was one of the best I've ever had - and I've had real Italian gelato all over Italy. Ordered a half gallon to take home to the place we were staying for the night, and it was amazing. Definitely wish this ice cream could be purchased in DC!

Grafters hs creamy, rich ice cream, made in many flavors. The service was awesome and their ice cream is the best! I had cooie dough. One scoop is equivalent to a bit more than one cup.

Graeters has been around for a long time, and is always packed. They're consistent, efficient, and make a solid creamy substantial ice cream. They have flavors that are wonderful (different from Jeni's -- which I also love) -- favorite is raspberry chocolate chip. Buckeye Blitz is the most popular flavor there, but way too rich for me!

I grew up eating this ice cream :) It's the best! I have many memories of grabbing ice cream as a family on hot summer evenings. I love the black raspberry chip :)

I had this before Jeni's, and was satisfied though not awed by the experience. This is good ice cream for everyday occasions, and/or for people who are not interested in creative, exciting ice cream such as one would find at Jeni's.

We'd heard of Grater's ice cream but recently visited for the first time. Wonderful, flavor-filled ice cream and other treats made our mouths water as we debated about which flavors to select. What made this such a treat for me was to find 4 low sugar choices. Many places don't offer low sugar options, and they had several, so I... More
