The other flavors do not disappoint. We love this delightful ice cream parlor with friendly service, delicious ice cream, and those silver dishes! So sorry we live hundreds of miles away.

Aglamesis Brothers have the best ice cream ever. Much better than Graeters. The handmade candy is yum.

Most Cincinnatians debate the best ice cream in the city between Graeter's and UDF. That's probably because there's no debate about Aglamesis. This isn't just ice cream: it's pure, frozen, sugary love. Not to mention Aglamesis hand made chocolate desserts and other non-ice cream fare. UDF is convenient. Graeter's has achieved commercial success and is even exporting their ice cream... More

I honestly have visited here more than Greater's Ice cream. This is not the huge place neither have been so crowed (based on my experience). However, they are nice and friendly, as well as the great selection of the ice cream. I usually visit with my family and kids. All of them love this places~

The store is very interesting. The ice cream is average at best. The chocolate is poor to average at best. I think if people were honest about the flavor of the ice cream and chocolate and not falling in love with the building they would not rate the sweets so highly. Graeter's is far superior. Aglamesis was a huge disappointment.... More

Any visit to Cincinnati should include a stop at this Victorian ice cream parlour in Oakley. (homemade candy and sandwiches, too) Locals don't argue over which ice cream is better - Graeter's or Aglamesis. We are blessed with 2 phenomenal local ice creams!

We were in Cincinnati for two days and after finding this place on TripAdvisor we had to try it. Oh. My. Goodness. Cutest little shop, cutest neighborhood, friendliest staff! We walked in expecting a lunch counter, and received several recommendations from the three people working. Went with one they mentioned and it was great! Came back to Algamesis Brothers for... More

Lived in Cinti for 30 yrs and now live in TX but there's nothing like their ice cream and their Easter candy! LOVE their malt marshmellow and caramarsh eggs! My adult kids still expect Aglamesis Brothers' chocolates for Easter!

Visited Aglamesis brothers in Oakley recently and tried their famous french quarter Sunday it's huge but with a hefty price tag but well worth it if you have a sweet tooth and a willing to share it with others. There ice cram is home made daily and their chocolate candies made weekly. I told them to add Carmellows to their... More
