I remember getting my weekly scoop of Grape on a sugar cone at the original location (conveniently steps away from the back door of the beauty salon my mother frequented). That Grape still tastes exactly the same as it did when i was 8 years old. It's like an... More

Handels is an institution in northeastern Ohio when it comes to ice cream. They have an astounding number of flavors and everything is tasty. The prices are a little high but that seems to be the case at all ice cream places these days. My personal favorite is the grape ice cream.

Probably the best ice I have had--ever, and this comes from a serious ice cream eater. So creamy, so smooth, and so flavorful, with a huge selection of flavors. If I lived closer I would be here all the time. We visited the location on South Avenue.

Handel's is hands- down the best ice cream around. When our family visits from California and New York, we always make a trip there. Of course, we visit on too many other occasions, as well.

Love heading to handles..best icecream around. Even in the winter you will find people lining up. I do recommend the 4 scoop sampler so you don't have a hard choice of picking just 1 flavor! The Boston cooler is unique..I've never seen it anywhere else, if you like rootbeer floats , you will love the Boston cooler.

Wow!!!!! Out of this world Tastylicious Ice cream! Not only is this place very affordable and incredibly good with their serving size, but it's also a legend in town. It's been around for years and has evolved into a destination spot for many locals and tourist.

Handles Ice Cream has been a family favorite for two generations. The variety of flavor is second to none....most famous for chocolate pecan...but my favorite is coconut cream pie. Celebrities have this ice cream shipped to their homes....once you try it you will want to come back!

I was introduced to Handels on my very first date and fell in love, not with the guy that took me there... lol... but with all the delicious homemade flavors. I have a cone there and always take a pint back home with me.
