Closed their doors to the public. Still producing ice cream for some local restaurants. Too bad, it was a great spot. Fear not! I believe Rita's Italian Ice is coming across the street.

This small, family owned ice cream shop had many delicious favors of homemade ice cream. Sadly, they closed last year because of some health issues with their son. So far, the shop has not reopened.

We visited a couple of times -- very rich ice cream, good flavor selection. Sadly C&D just closed. Not sure what the plans are.

Sadly, Carmen & David's closed recently, not because it wasn't wonderful but family obligations took too much time. If and when they re-open, be sure to go there for interesting flavors and rich creamy ice cream.

Too bad they're closing up shop. The place is always busy but the owners have some personal reasons for shutting the doors. Luckily I'll be able to get Carmen & David's ice cream at a few local Lancaster restaurants.

Ice cream is fantastic, but unfortunately Carmen and David chose to close their retail storefront and focus on wholesale. You can still get their ice cream at many city locations, including Chestnut Hill Cafe.

While in Lancaster to see White Christmas at the Fulton Theatre, I had to stop across the street at Carmen and David's Creamery to see for myself. According to other reviews, this is the 4th ranked restaurant in Lancaster so my expectations were high. Sorry...More

Ice cream tasted like any other ice cream parlor. I had mint chip. It was good, I enjoyed it, but I've had better ice cream from dairy farms that make homemade ice cream. It wasn't anything mind blowing. Atmosphere was bright. My husband and I...More

There's no better treat than to stop by Carmen & David's Creamery after a walk around downtown Lancaster. A good selection of treats and a creative seating area.

This spot has ice cream in so many flavors that I have not seen elsewhere. Since I can never make up my mind, I often get the three mini-scoop sampler and can try three new flavors at one time. A must for ice cream lovers.
