“Inventive ice creams”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

Home made ice cream that is inventive from wonderful to silly names. Free samples so you don't get something you don't really want. The owner also takes suggestions for future flavors

“Good alternative to Carvel or Baskin Robbins”
Reviewed November 9, 2011

Five Pennies Creamery is a cute little ice cream shop with a variety of creative ice cream flavors and numerous desserts to choose from. The atmosphere is somewhat retro, reminiscent of the 50's; and the staff is friendly and not reluctant to answer any questions about the menu. They are also very generous with their sample tastings. Prices here are relatively cheap and the quality of the ice cream is very good.

Ambiance and inventive menu aside, the question I ask myself is, "Would I go out of my way to get ice cream here?" The answer is no. While the ice cream is indeed very good, is it that much better than Carvel or Mr. Softee? I don't believe so. However, we do dine in Rockville Centre quite a bit, and I would absolutely come here again for a wonderful dessert...I just wouldn't go out of my way for it.

Basically, if you are tired of going to Carvel, Baskin Robbins, or chasing down Mr. Softee, then go to Five Pennies. It's something different and you will not be disappointed.
