The absolute best ice cream ever! Tom Leo (owner) is a friendly and community-oriented businessman. He aims to please every customer and his employees do likewise.

My wife and I along with our dog visit Leo's often and thoroughly enjoy the ice cream. It's a pleasant walk for us now that they have moved their place of business closer to Dickinson College. It's very well maintained with plenty of seating inside and out. The staff is always friendly, willing to assist and patient while you decide... More

Now the the local crowd may argue that Massey's is the best ice cream in town. I agree that they are good also but mostly based in soft serve products with very little variation in flavors. Leo is an ice cream artist. You can walk in and get a flavor on Monday and come back to a different flavor 2... More

My family and I were camping near Carlisle and we all wanted some ice cream. The whole pack of us (11+) went to Leo's and it was awesome! The service was great and they even allowed free tastes since some of the flavors are so unique. I sampled the cornbread ice cream which was very tasty. They had so many... More

My son loves Leo's. You can buy cones, dishes and tubs of great ice cream. There is a small, quiet area to sit and hours and service are great.

The ice cream is made using Galliker's products. How is that homemade? I think the business owner is a little misleading regarding his products, unless you can buy products from a corporate dairy, mix them in an ice cream machine, and call it your OWN, ''homemade'' ice cream.

I think this is the best ice cream I have ever had, and I LOVE ice cream. It is so creamy and also uses real ingredients (no chocolate flavored base here-just cocoa and sugar!!), so the taste is incredible. No soft serve, only hard pack, but that's the best part. There are so many flavors that change regularly, so chances... More

This is not an eating restaurant, it's ice cream. Very good ice cream too. It's worth the visit. They also have ice cream pies, and ice cream in freezers packed and ready to go.

Recently in a new location close to Dickinson College, very good ice cream with a nice variety of flavors many with tasty add-in ingredients, the building is in nice shape but the grounds are a bit rough, usually run by young people who we've found to be consistently pleasant, courteous and efficient, our family gets to Leo's at least 6-7...

Took a stroll from the White Elephant after dinner to Leo's. It was a nice walk (maybe 15 minutes) thru Dickinson campus, past fields and then arrived. Ice cream was a hit as always
