Love this place. Be prepared for a long line if you are visiting on a First Friday of the month. Love that they make their own ice cream. Best Cookies and Cream EVER! I consider myself an ice cream expert!! Wanna try something new? Plenty of new things to try... And I love that they have water available (self-serve) for... More

We have been here several times now, very consistent product. Read on for more, but I'll save you some time and say this is the best ice cream that we've ever had. -Atmosphere/Service- Located in downtown, parking can be a challenge, but it is worth it. Park in the parking garage on Prince Street just north of the creamery for... More

We had just had lunch and were looking for something sweet when we happened on Carmen and David's Creamery. That make the ice cream on site, had over 30 flavors including a sugar free butter pecan which I thoroughly enjoyed. We had a single scoop which is the equivalent to two anyplace else. Located right across from the Fulton Theatre.

The best ice cream I've ever had! I asked the girl behind the counter her favorite... toasted coconut... I have to say, I agree with her :) they allow you to get three mini scoops for the price of one regular. So I tried the dark chocolate, which came in a close second and the salted caramel which was equally... More

Our son attends college in the area and suggested this ice cream shop while we were visiting him. When we arrived around 9PM on a Saturday night the line was very long-- maybe 20 guests ahead of us. While we waited we took in the very interesting surroundings. They had several games out on tables that families could play, the... More

Amazing ice cream! My husband and I had cones here and SO enjoyed them. He had the pretzel cone and didn't like that so much, but the ice cream was great! My waffle cone was super! You have to try this place when in Lancaster! Nice atmosphere, also.

Great ice cream spot. Try the Bourbon Coffee ice cream. You will not be disappointed. I suspect that as it gets warmer they will be more packed.

We have been to Carmen and David's before and enjoyed their delicious home made ice cream. We went for National Ice Cream for Breakfast Day and had a blast. We had waffles with maple icxe cream, maple syrup, and bacon. It was awesome. They had pj contests for kids and balloon animals being made. The fact that it was freezing... More
