Description: No trip to Savannah is complete without a visit to Leopold's Ice Cream!...
No trip to Savannah is complete without a visit to Leopold's Ice Cream! Named the #5 Ice Cream in the World, Leopold's is a "Must-Do." You'll enjoy visiting our retro ice cream parlor, complete with old fashioned soda fountain and friendly soda jerks. You'll also experience a little piece of Hollywood in Savannah as you peruse Stratton Leopold's collection of film posters and props from films he has worked on over his 45 plus years in the movie industry! Leopold's Ice Cream was founded in 1919 by three immigrant brothers from Greece. They learned the art of candy and dessert from an uncle who had already settled in America. The brothers perfected the secret formulas and created the world famous Leopold's VeriBest™ ice cream.Our ice cream is made in house, one batch at a time, using family recipes handed down from the Leopold brothers. With our soda fountain creations and more than 20 flavors available at any given time, we've got something just for you!

My husband and I like our ice cream flavorful but not sugary. After trying a half dozen samples at Leopold's, we chose the cocoanut and the strawberry ice creams. Unbelievable delectable!

A great local ice cream place with quality ice cream and unique flavors this shop in historic Savannah is an interesting place to visit with very good ice cream. We had coffee ice cream with shots of espresso poured over it which was heavenly. This hang out is decorated with movie memorabilia including movie posters.
