“Ice Cream like it ought to be...”

Old Lyme Ice Cream Shoppe & Cafe
Ranked #1 of 3 Dessert in Old Lyme
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Quaint little ice cream (and cafe!) shop in "downtown" Old Lyme. Makes their own ice cream with natural ingredients. Rich and tasty like ice cream was meant to be. Friendly, helpful service. Great atmosphere. Didn't try the sandwiches but they sound delicious. But the ice cream is not to be missed!!!

Really excited that OLICS is under old management. Great shoreline stop for the whole family. Toasted Coconut is and always will be my favorite. The shop has a great ambiance and not to mention great food! Come on down for a great time, family time, couple time, ANY time!

Spring is here officially and on a warmer Sunday (52 degrees) we went to Old Lyme Ice Cream and had our first dip off the year. I loved the peach that was made specially from peaches saved from last years harvest. Awsome!!! Dont come down for the peach. I got the last bit until peach season 2013 (late August). Come for their other spectacular 16% buttermilk flavors.

This a great place for lunch and ice cream. Cute little place with outdoor seating. Sandwiches are unique. Great bread. Fresh vegetables. Ice cream is a nice way to end your meal.

FRESH PEACH ICE CREAM, TO DIE FOR! But all the other flavors are wonderful, peach ice cream only available in summer as it is homemade and you will know it at first lick!
