Rich and creamy ice cream. Many flavors, something for everyone - waffle cones, regular cones, dishes and sundaes. Delicious! Hometown atmosphere. Eat in or outside, choice is yours.

We have been here about 10 times. We always get GREAT Service & Ice Cream. We only have one problem, they never seem to have Strawberry Ice Cream. That is only thing wrong with this place. The Ice Cream & Service is always GREAT.

Good homage ice cream. While I don't know the exact butterfat content, it strikes me as pretty rich. There is a sugar free or sugar less edition of the salted caramel, but it isn't quite as good IMHO.

Even plain old vanilla is very good here. Almond Joy is exceptional. Ice cream is made on site. Fresh and creamy.

The ice cream is very rich .... More like a custard. They are rather pricey too. I don't think we will be going back.

I love Leo's ice cream. It's excellent and there's different flavors to choose from. The best homemade ice cream in town. Definitely worth a visit even though they move to a new location.

Leo's beats every other ice cream store in Cumberland County! A little pricey, but size able helping, and definitely worth a visit. The blackberry and the salted caramel are terrific!

Thank Larry S
