The quintessential soft serve shop.

The K&W is an indicator that Springboro was once a small town. I lived in 3 different small towns in Ohio growing up, each has a place like this.

I no longer live in the Boro, however I have several fond memories and the "K" is one of them. There's nothing sweeter than a soft serve cone on a hot Ohio day on Main St. Great service served by friendly/smiley faces. What more could you ask for?

This is THE place to hangout in Springboro - for teens, families, and those with a few more years on them. Great service and atmosphere. Outstanding prices on very good food. Closes for a few months over the heart of the winter, but it is open when you want it. Just a friendly place that fits the community.

This is the quintessential Boro hangout, full of families all summer long packed with students every Friday that the temperature is above 50. They have a ridiculous number of soft ice cream flavors and a menu that's so long you'd need an hour to take it in. The food is typical small-town drive-in type food - nothing fancy. But it's...

This is a local hang out for Springboro residents, especially during the summer months. They have great ice cream options for everyone in the family. Their fries aren't bad either. It can get crowded during certain times of the evening so be ready to wait in line, especially after any local sporting events. Prices are average for this type of... More

Where can you get an soft serve ice cream cone for $.50 any more? The K as we call it locally. And of course many other shakes and food that is the meet up place after sports.

The K and W is a soft serve ice cream, sandwiches and sides shop. Growing up in Springboro, the K (as locals call it)is a tradition. It sits in a historical district of town. I usually get the foot long hot dog with chili cheese onion and mustard. My husband gets the same thing except he adds cold slaw to... More

Stopped by during our "Walking History Tour" Very dirty outside, overflowing garbage cans and debris in the gardens, on the tables and thoughout the our door eating area. This was early in the afternoon, when they opened...YUCK!

I'm not a huge fan of soft serve but this place has the best I've eaten, mainly because of the huge selection of flavors, toppings, and dips. The service is very fast and friendly and the ice cream is very firm even in the hottest weather. The also have a full lunch menu although I haven't tried and of those... More
