“Great Ice Cream in Historic Parlor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

This ice cream is every bit as good as Graeter's and is served in an old fashioned parlor in Oakley. Try some of their candies as well, they are delicious!

“Better than Graeters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

This has always been my Cincinnati favorite ice cream. It's not as well known being located only in Oakley and Montgomery, but their ice cream rocks! Enjoy this old world treat.

“Flavor-packed ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

This little place screams history from the minute you walk in. Eating on original marble tables from the early 1900's sends your mind wondering how many people have eaten here throughout the years. The service is tremendous and the ice cream is even better. I had a scoop of mint chocolate chip and my fiancee had a scoop of strawberry banana. The flavors were bold and the ice cream was tremendous. The scoops are a little on the small side, but the flavor makes up for the lack of quantity.

“Best ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Great old fashioned and quaint ice cream parlor in Oakley. I don't like chocolate so this is better than Graeter's for me. Swiss raspberry sundae is heavenly- fresh made real whipped cream folded into homemade raspberry sauce- OMG, again I hate chocolate so I get it on starwberry ice cream or vanilla. Topped with crushed english walnuts- this is soooo yummy.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

missed this place since moving from Cincy years ago
feared time and distance had enhanced my memory, but the ice cream is really as good as I remembered! Charming old fashioned ice cream parlor atmosphere and good staff.
a little pricey but sooo worth it
