Love Carmen and David's on a hot summer night. Just down the street from Central Market on Prince Street. The sorbet is just as good as the ice cream. Creative choices for whatever you are looking for. Best place to grab ice cream in Lancaster City. If you live in the suburbs, forgo the Ritas and the Frozen Yogurt chains... More

While in Lancaster to see White Christmas at the Fulton Theatre, I had to stop across the street at Carmen and David's Creamery to see for myself. According to other reviews, this is the 4th ranked restaurant in Lancaster so my expectations were high. Sorry to say, I've had better ice cream in the Lancaster area. Don't get me wrong,... More

Ice cream tasted like any other ice cream parlor. I had mint chip. It was good, I enjoyed it, but I've had better ice cream from dairy farms that make homemade ice cream. It wasn't anything mind blowing. Atmosphere was bright. My husband and I visited in the middle of the day and it wasn't busy at all. The staff... More

There's no better treat than to stop by Carmen & David's Creamery after a walk around downtown Lancaster. A good selection of treats and a creative seating area.

This spot has ice cream in so many flavors that I have not seen elsewhere. Since I can never make up my mind, I often get the three mini-scoop sampler and can try three new flavors at one time. A must for ice cream lovers.

There are many different flavors of ice cream to choose from this place. You really can't go wrong with anything you choose. The service is always great and the prices aren't bad either. The atmosphere is very colorful and comfortable. Good treat for a Saturday afternoon.

Ice cream and sorbet are delicious. Atmosphere is fun. Great place to go after dinner for dessert. Fun place for all ages, from little kids to college kids. Reminded me of a place in the Village in NYC.

This is some of the best ice cream anywhere. All ice cream is made on the premises, and they have a huge assortment of flavors. Portions are generous. You won't be disappointed!

This place is great. Loads of really different flavors. It was hard to choose! I ended up having Salted Caramel in a pretzel cone. It was delicious. Make it a point if you are in downtown Lancaster to fit in a visit here!

Tried Carmen and David's for the first time today. Excellent ice cream. Toasted Coconut, Pumpkin cheesecake, sorbets, and so much more. Must return to try them all. t is definitely on the higher price end with 2 coops being $5. But, a great occasional treat.
