Great Ice Cream

We visited this place twice during our week in Williamsburg. Our kids loved it. The ice cream is homemade and they have a lot of flavors to choose from. The prices are average and serving sizes are what you would get elsewhere. It is worth a visit!

GENEROUS servings of top quality ice cream, including unique flavors like my favorite: coconut cream pie! A bit too much hot fudge on the sundaes, though...

This place has been in business for 70 years for a reason!! The ice cream is tasty and avoids being too sweet. One of favorite treats on our trips to Williamsburg.

Came for the homemade ice cream... So tasty! My husband got Oreo-Dough and he loved it! I had banana and it actually had chunks of bananas in it (not the artificial yellow stuff). They let us split a dish between our boys instead of buying two since they don't actually have "kid" sizes. Which they suggested without issue. I had... More

We had finished a day at Busch Gardens, and were in the mood for ice cream before we started our drive home to Northern Virginia. A helpful suggestion from an information desk sent us towards Handel's, and it proved to be good advice. It took a long time to decide which flavor(s) we wanted, but the staff was helpful and...

We found this place on accident while we were antiquing, and stopped for some ice cream. It is a place where you walk up outside and eat either in your car or on the benches provided. It was so good that we came back again the next day! Yummy!

Service is very slow. Had the chocolate peanut butter brownie ice cream which was good. Peanut butter topping was very good. Daughter enjoyed the cotton candy. Not the best I've had but very good. I would go back again if I lived around here.

I think they have a lot of nerve calling themselves an ice cream and yogurt shop. They have many favors of ice cream, but only have vanilla yogurt! It was good, but way too expensive.

Be careful of the reviews as our server was friendly and gave us samples. Ice cream is $3.50 for a single scoop. Many choices here and all the favors are good. Sundaes look good as well and for $4.85. Portions decent.
