“Home-Made Soft Serve - Orange, Strawberry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

Remember those "orange dreamsicles" you had as a kid. Orange popsicle coating, vanilla creamy ice-cream center? Remember orange push-ups? Ever had HOMEMADE strawberry icecream, made with fresh strawberries? If you want to experience ALL THAT and MORE, stop by The Cone. A giant fiberglass cone is the front of the store...and expect a line, but NOT that long of a wait. The soft-serve is dense, yet, creamy and smooth. My favorite is the fresh strawberry twist...with 1/2 strawberry soft serve and half vanilla. Large outdoor seating area...two smaller indoor seating areas (air conditioned) wiht a game room, AND a coin-operated kiddy rides area. Take the family to beat the summer heat! They have a limited sandwich menu and chips, and drinks...but the soft-serve is AMAZING. Try the triple hot-fudge banana split...just like a regular one, but with three LARGE pools of hot fudge, and spanish peanuts tossed all over, on top of vanilla icecream and a banana! The Cone is a West Chester favorite for nearly 20 years now.

“Very Good Soft Serve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

This is a landmark in the northern Cincinnati area for soft serve ice cream and shaved ice treats. Terrible location always creates a parking and traffic headache so be patient and don't get in a big rush for your ice cream. Try their orange and vanilla twist cone.

“Once a week must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

The best ice cream stand in Cincinnati, you must stop here on your way through West Chester. The Cone has a number of unique ice cream desserts. Don't expect to walk right up to the window, most of the time there is a line at the window and in drive-thru this place has been getting bigger and bigger every year. The Cone even has mobile cones that travel in the summer time all around the city for events and festivals.

“Cones get smaller and prices get higher”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2011

It's a summer tradition in West Chester. The soft serve is good but not great. Prices have risen to the point that it's no longer a couple of times a month treat. I say spend your summer money elsewhere.

“Overpriced softserve......”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2011

What was once a great little place to stop with the kids for some above average softserve ice cream (the creamsicle was my family's favorite) has been ruined for me by the continual rise in prices. 8$ for a small cone with sprinkles and a medium twist cone is a waste of money when you compare the quality to Graeter's ice cream, which you could easily get for the same price or less. I am sure countless families will still pile into the cramped parking lot out of habit. It is a West Chester tradition. I am done though.
