Improve this listing
Ranked #5 of 10 Restaurants in Bethlehem
Cuisines: Ice Cream
Description: It is located adjacent to the Colonial Theatre and across the street from Cold Mountain Cafe. It would be a good stop for tourists going to either place and is worthy of a listing. The ice cream is superb and the prices quite competitive with other independently owned ice cream places in the area.

“Great ice cream and great people.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

Homemade ice cream with premium ingredients. Good stuff. My family of 4 (2 adults and a 5 & 7 year old) split one of the blended ice creams. It had great flavor and was sufficient for the 4 of us without stuffing ourselves. The owner was working and was quite pleasant. My wife and I wanted the coffee ice cream. The owner told us they brew strong coffee and blend that in instead of coffee 'flavor'! What is coffee 'flavor' anyways! We decided we better not do the coffee ice cream however tempting since we were sharing with our daughters. The owner gave us a generous sample of it anyways just so we could try it. That is good customer service!

“Our Local Ice Cream Shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Renell's is our local ice cream shop. This is a place where the locals and the many guests who visit Bethlehem come together.

The shop is located right new to the Colonial Movie Theater. It could not be located more centrally located in Bethlehem.

The ice cream is all hand made by the owners. The featured flavors always change with the seasons. Pumpkin Pie, Ambrosia, and the various berry ice creams are just a few of my favorites. Hand packed pints are available and are a great way to bring more ice cream home with you.

The kids love the soft serve ice cream that they offer. Seems much better than your normal soft serve ice cream. They have all kinds of fancy swirrly ice cream mixtures to select from if you like fancy ice cream dishes.

The prices are quite reasonable and the portions are large. You can sit inside or outside to enjoy your ice cream. My kids like to sit on the steps of the movie theater. In the summer on Saturdays from 10-2pm - Memorial Day until Columbus Day - there is a Farmers Market right across the road to visit as well.

They are open most, if not all days in the summer. During the winter they have a more limited schedule.

If you are in the area, this is a gret place to visit and enjoy homemade ice cream. You will be very happy with the ice cream as you rub elbows with the locals who will also be enjoying tasty frozen treats!!!

“Great place, friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

We had dinner across the street. When we came in the owner couldn't be nicer and said we could relax while she closed. Home made ice cream - red rasberry with choc chip - was fantastic.

“Best Homemade Icecream in the Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012 via mobile

There are a bunch of independent, homemade Icecream places in the area, but this is the best. Great rotation of flavors, well priced and friendly service. Love the Avalanches.
