Delicious homemade ice cream!!!

My daughter took me to this local ice cream shop in Carytown and got to taste a different flavor than I would find at a chain ice cream shop. While they did have vanilla, coffee, chocolate chip flavors there were spacial flavors of the day. Since we were there on a Friday, the flavors were Basil... read more

Excellent homemade icecream! Many creative flavors, and everyone in our group loved their icecream. I would highly recommend the butter pecan, mocha almond, and espresso and oreo icecream flavors!

We just wanted some ice cream. I saw the store riding down Cary. I dropped my party off and tried to find somewhere to park. Finding nowhere I parked in "The Portrait House Only spot", being a little scared of the consequences. We bought our ice cream and ate as we drove on down the road. The ice cream is... More

Great ice cream. Different flavors, fresh and all homemade. Not to be missed. Espresso Oreo amid strawberry basil were great.

I am lactose intolerant and tend to avoid ice-cream but this place was too good to pass up. Very delicious and good assortment of flavors, I had the coffee/cookie combo (I don't remember the name) and it was great. Service is nothing special but then again, it's an ice cream parlor and not upscale dining.

I will start with best part of the review. The ice cream is out standing. Good variety of flavors and free cups of water. I always want water when I eat ice cream. Bad: The staff could be more organized. Went there with 3 friends, one shake and three cones. One girl made the cones and rang up the order... More

Hands down Bev's has great homemade ice cream. I went for a seasonal choice - apple and carmel and rum raisn. Wow! Rich, creamy and full of flavor. The seving sizes was larger than we are accustomed to for speciality ice cream. We found the servive was exceptionally courteous and good. The seating was not very comfortable but then how... More

When someone visits from out of town, there are a couple standby restaurants that we go to, certainly some shops that we try and bring business too, but nobody, and I mean nobody, gets to come here without visiting Bev's at least once. With at least a half-dozen fresh-that-day-only flavors, a wall full of standby choices, and a cute area... More

We're at the point in our road trip when you just need a decent ice cream. After some local digging we find out we should head to Carytown and look out for Bev's. We did, and it was good. Very good. I went for 'Dirty Chocolate' with M&Ms and Oreo's. It was unbelievable. I've been around a bit, I've been... More

One of my favorite ice cream shops so far. While in Richmond I was a little disappointed with the food in Cary st but was extremely happy to find this great place. I had the butter pecan and peach and cream both extremely creamy and flavorful.
