Just wish this place was opened year round!! After all, who doesn't like ice cream all year round!! I understand it is usually high school kids who work here, but you would only need to be open in the evenings and weekends I would think. I live out of state and when we come home for Christmas, my son always... More

Super nice place to get ice cream and spend a while watching the town of Ste. Genevieve go by. Super location that is close to all attractions in historic part of town. Owner and employees always very friendly. Clean and neat with the best ice cream around.

Have not seen double scoop cones since I can't remember when -- 2 ice cream "cups" on one cone stem. The ice cream had the clean taste of childhood memories of home made ice cream rather than all the thick custardy ice cream of today.

Enjoyed some delicious shakes here. Loved the antique soda fountain equipment. And the prices were extra nice!

Family of four went to Sara's Creamery after recommended by family from the area. Cute old style creamery in downtown area. Ice Cream was very very good! Paid $9.75 for four one scoop cones. Did I mention how good the ice cream was! Would definitely stop here again when in the area.

Great ice cream but short on smiles with no wasted words. Visited twice because we love ice cream. First visit we felt like we should apologize for interrupting server's day. Hardly a word spoken and that, only in response to ? about when season is busiest. Second, (apparently family member) garnered some passing comment about enjoying our visit as we... More

We were in the area today and was craving ice cream. I googled Ste. Gen and found this cute little shop. The ice cream cones we had were good, but they had a very small selection of flavors. It was ok. We love ice cream, so it did hit the spot.

We arrived shortly after the shop opened for the day. Not long after getting there another couple came in. Shortly after that a few more people came in and then two more. Within a short period of time there were 8 of us in this itty bitty shop. The teenage boy working behind the counter was nice and the milkshake... More

We stopped in here because it said antiques/ice cream shop and there aren't that many shops to stop in at. We thought they'd have antiques for sale, not just look at all these old antiques we have. It had a little soda fountain inside and since we walked in I got a chocolate malt. It was served in a styrofoam... More
