Great selection and prices. Always hard to choose because there are so many things to try. Italian ice, hard ice cream, soft ice cream, shakes, sundaes, combinations of these. Often plenty of folks lined up for treats but the service is quick.

They always have new kind of flavors out and they all taste so good. The place is kept very clean! The people who work there are also very nice. Love all their whole menus! I wish they would keep some of the hard ice cream flavors longer than they last, but they are all very tasty!

Great Italian ice and gelato . The ice cream isn't the creamiest but the gelato and Italian ice are good . It's always kids working there so you wait in line for long periods of time . The prices are a bit high for ice cream and especially for a small town . No where to sit or enjoy your... More

Locals know that Pepe's is the best ice cream/Italian ice place, not only in the area, but possibly anywhere. They make all of their stuff on the premises, hundreds of flavors, with new ones all the time. Their soft ice cream is to die for, but my husband prefers their unique hard ice cream flavors and my son is all... More

This place has the best ice cream and Italian ice we ever had! We now drive 45 minutes each direction and pass many ice cream places just to get "our Pepe Fix", lol

We have had Pepe's ice cream before, but we were never at his mail location in Mount Carmel until two weeks ago. Pepe also has an ice cream truck and he goes around to local communities and sells ice cream. We usually get ice cream in front of our house from his truck. The other week he did not come... More

Great little Mom and Pop shop with friendly people and good service. My favorite is the homemade hard ice cream- all I have to say is WOW! It maybe slightly more money than May's or Turkey Hill but OMG does it taste better, nothing else even comes close!!! Sometimes there is a line but it moves fast and is worth... More

best ice cream place around, you have to try their cherry Italian ice, it has bits of real cherries in it, their ice cream is so cream it is just like the old time custard.
