Right in the heart of town this has been in existence since the early 1800's as several different businesses. Their is a historical marker outside offering the history and past ownership. This has the ice cream but also offers lunches and dinners and a very nice alternative to sit and relax while doing your day of shopping.

We have visited the Village Ice Cream Parlor several times in the past, and we stopped today for a small snack and drink. We were so impressed by the friendliness of the staff, and it was refreshing to note that the workers, though young, did not spend their time staring at cell phones and texting. It was obvious that they... More

Such a cute old fashion ice cream shop. Looks like an old sofa fountain. Service was good & fast. Ice cream was really good with great variety. We loved the atmosphere & the ice cream. We will be back!!

Fortunately, cookie cutter chain restaurants have not totally smothered America's personality. This spot is an an example. Most of the reviews appear spot on about this quaint parlor. We came here on a Saturday afternoon and it was fairly crowded. Everything was delightful as you would expect. However, our portions of ice cream were ridiculously small for what we paid.... More

The food is respectable. I frankly would eat here more often if they would invest in some chairs. The current chairs are tiny and have a slant that makes you feel as if you're going to fall out. Surely there are old -fashioned chairs out there (in keeping with the look of the parlor) that a person could actually sit... More

The place was packed on an early Saturday afternoon, and we stopped after spending time going through some shops. When we order the coconut almond chip, we found out quickly enough why there were so many people there! The ice cream was simply amazing. Any time we go to Lebanon to eat at the Golden Lamb, we intend to also... More
