“Great Ice Cream and Great food too”

Ranked #1 of 3 Dessert in Old Lyme
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 4, 2013

I love all the different and creative flavors they have. So many of them seasonal and you need to catch them when the ingredients are fresh. I love the peach ice cream. The pumpkin caramel pecan pie is amazing with chunks of pie crust in it. Ginger snap is a favorite as well as the Chai. The sandwiches are amazing. The owner told me she roasts all the meats on the premises and you can definitely taste it. Love the soups all home made too. YUM!!!

We have plenty of ice cream shops to choose from in our area. The Old Lyme Ice Cream Shoppe is just such a treat. We come here once a week for sure during the summer. Every flavor we have tried is delicious. Their hot fudge and carmel sundaes are the best. My all time favorite ice cream is Salted Carmel with lots of chocolate sprinkles. We love going after dinner and to sit under the big trees outside to enjoy the whole experience. Always a delight!

The ice cream is very rich - they do not skimp on the cream. The prices were very reasonable, and the scoops were generous. We loved the white chocolate cappucino and the black raspberry flavors here.

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!
