I have recently discovered the greatness of Capital Street. We had the Espresso Oreo ice cream and it was to die for. Not too chunky with a great espresso flavor. We will be back again!

Love their ice cream and food. Chocolate cherry amore is my favorite but it's all good? They are very busy so we usually buy a couple of quarts and bring them home. Terrific, easy dessert.

Ice cream was great, staff were friendly and attentive. We went on a busy night so parking was a bit of a challenge, however, we only had to walk 3 blocks and its was worth it! We had 4 flavors which we shared, all were excellent. Worth getting off the highway for a treat.

We were on a quest for hand-dipped ice cream on a recent road trip from Nashville to central Pa. After receiving a recommendation from a friend who went to school in Charleston we visited Ellen's. The place was busy on a weekend evening but the ice cream was worth the wait. Would go out of the way to visit again.

While visiting my daughter in West Virginia we were told we had to try Ellen's ice cream. I was kind of skeptical about it being the best ice cream I had ever had. I was raised on some very good ice cream but I was wrong. This is the best ice cream I have ever had. The only negative thing... More

Ice cream and more. Unique and interesting flavor options. Nice lunch choices. Lemon Zestivall is a personal favorite offered only during Festivall. Cute shop and friendly staff.

The Capitol Street area is the better part of Charleston and Ellen's makes it sweet! Standards and special flavors available. Try the coconut ice cream with their hot fudge... A warm Mounds bar.

Always stop for a scoop when in downtown Charleston! Quaint little shop with a feel of nostalgia. Staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful and ice cream - made on location - is extraordinary.
