Homemade Ice Cream in the Old Market

Ted & Wally's Ice Cream Parlor has the best ice cream. New flavors all the time. Everything from traditional chocolate chip to Guiness ice cream. I am never disappointed and always happy when I go there. The "down" side is it is so popular, it can be difficult to get in, especially on weekends. But... read more

Unique flavors (to put it mildly), cool urban vibe in the Old Market. A trip to Omaha just isn't complete without a visit. Been there many times, favorite flavor...Grape Nuts. It was actually REALLY good. Don't worry though, they have plain vanilla for the timid.

I had the lemon cake and my sister had the butter pecan ice cream sundaes. There was just a short line since it was the end of January. Service was great as usual and the ice cream was smooth and creamy.

I liked the very local feel to this place, they were friendly and all but the flavors were all a little too freaky for my taste so I ordered chocolate. It was good but not what I expected for a home made ice cream place. Would I go back? Maybe. But then I'm kind of an ice cream snob.

We stopped here for some ice cream when we were walking around Old Market. They had some interesting flavors of ice cream and we ended up getting their equivalent to blizzards. They weren't anything special.

T & W had a nice selection of different and interesting flavors, but the place itself smelled of urine 😕 And our son was very excited for a malt, but was mildly disappointed to receive what tasted like just a shake instead.

If you want an experience with your ice cream and not just a run of the mill chain, this is your place. Delicious recipes and adorable décor.

Dreamy, creamy and with a range of flavours that is incredible. Always a long queue but worth the wait.

Popular spot so be prepared to wait in line for a few minutes, especially on warm sunny days/evenings. The ice cream is very good and worth the wait. Prices are a bit high, but that seems to be typical in specialty ice cream stores. This is a nice place to take guests visiting Omaha so you can eat your cone... More
