One of the three good spots to get a cold summer treat in Bexley. Nice flavor selection. Convenient location in the heart of town

We decided to bust-out of our Graeter's routine of eating a scoop, and got banana splits. It includes two flavors, plus two toppings. The whipped cream has robust flavor as well. Well worth the calories, just don't make it a habit.

After a visit to the Drexel Theatre what could be better than a Graeter's Ice Cream? We couldn't come up with anything either. Great seasonal favorites, dependable everyday flavors and served with a smile made this visit most pleasant.

I wish they had a Graeter's Ice Cream in Nashville, TN. I love the black raspberry chip and my husband is crazy for the mocha chocolate chip.
