old fashioned ice cream parlor with lots of variety. brings back many memories for the "grown ups" and provides an opportunity for new ones for the "kiddos"

Homemade ice cream, but nothing sugar-free. They claim it's TOO Difficult and make and tastes bad. Well, they need to go to some of the places I frequent that have excellent homemade sugar-free ice cream, especially since 20% of the population is diabetic! No excuse for laziness-learn to do it right!!!

The ice cream was ok, but they have really cut down on the portions since last summer. I like their mint chocolate chip ice cream the best. The staff was ok.

We loved the ice cream on our way back from the beach. But the ice cream is all about the whole nice experience, am I right? Wished to give them five, wished the staff would have been as friendly as other Lewes beach residents! 2 x 2 scoop ice creams with waffle cones: $10; no credit card accepted.

Yum! Really good choice of really good creamy homemade ice creams. The chocolate almond was wonderful as was the coffee according to my husband and the mint chocolate chip too.

Lewes is fun to walk around. Eating fresh made ice cream is fun too. This ice cream is creamy and tasty. They have a location in Milton too, I think on Federal Street. Lots of flavors to choose from. I am partial to vanilla.

Homemade ice cream. You can sit inside or claim one of the benches outside and do some people watching while you enjoy your cone.

This ice cream is what it says on the tin - home made. Good choice of flavours and a really nice texture unlike so many others that although usually nice can be almost impossible to eat from the tub as they are like glue. Also very good value and a small tub actually is two scoops and you can have... More

Bland flavorless flavors. Coffee Ice cream tasted artificial. Perhaps using coffee liquor instead of real coffee. It was not just me. All three of us wound up dumping our cups and cones in the garbage.We all had different flavors.

We're sorry to hear that you found the flavors bland. We use real coffee, not flavor or liquor in our coffe ice cream. We use the highest quality real ingredients in all our flavors. You should see the amount of bananas that go into our fresh banana ice cream! Did you guys happen to eat a spicy meal before? That... More
