Description: No trip to Savannah is complete without a visit to Leopold's Ice Cream! Named the #5 Ice Cream in the World, Leopold's is a "Must-Do." You'll enjoy visiting our retro ice cream parlor, complete with old fashioned soda fountain and friendly soda jerks. You'll also experience a little piece of Hollywood in Savannah as you peruse Stratton Leopold's collection of film posters and props from films he has worked on over his 45 plus years in the movie industry! Leopold's Ice Cream was founded in 1919 by three immigrant brothers from Greece. They learned the art of candy and dessert from an uncle who had already settled in America. The brothers perfected the secret formulas and created the world famous Leopold's VeriBest™ ice cream.Our ice cream is made in house, one batch at a time, using family recipes handed down from the Leopold brothers. With our soda fountain creations and more than 20 flavors available at any given time, we've got something just for you!

“Delicious ice cream at a terrific ice cream parlor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Add this to your list of things to do in Savannah, and if you like ice cream at all (who doesn't?) you won't be sorry! Eating delicious ice cream is always a treat, and visiting this unique ice cream parlor was just as much of a treat. The Leopold’s Ice Cream history is interesting and you can read all about it while enjoying your ice cream. I had a scoop of chocolate chocolate chip (and the scoops are generous) - wonderful! After I read the history I had to ask for a taste of tutti-frutti to see why it was so loved and it was fabulous as well. The original Leopold’s Ice Cream was founded in 1919 and closed in 1969. Many of the old fixtures were kept in storage and put back in use when the shop reopened in 2004, including the black marble soda fountain. The shop has an old fashioned look with movie props and posters displayed here and there due to the film career of one of the original owner’s sons (and now current owner of Leopold’s). Fun to see!

“Dreaming of honey almond cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

Had ice cream here twice on our weekend trip to savannah! My husband and I both had
the honey almond cream ice cream flavor! My taste buds went wild! You can tell the prominent honey flavor is definitely some high quality honey. They say they use the honey from The Savannah Bee Company. I will be ordering a bottle of their honey, getting some roasted almonds, and trying to recreate this ice cream at home until I visit savannah again lol
