Description: Nelson's Ice Cream Store is currently open under the management of the Nelson Family. Patrick and Amanda Nelson are doing the daily operations of the store. We have updated the interior of the building and have been busy since Memorial day! Currently you can choose your favorite cone and then pick from over 30 flavors of 16% butter fat ice cream made at our factory across the street. We also make Banana splits, a variety of sundae's with baked goods made on the property by Amanda Nelson. If you want to take home your favorite flavor you can purchase many of the flavors in half gallons, pints, and novelties. The Nelson's have also installed an old fashioned original soda fountain and will make your favorite soda with one or more of the many flavors they offer on the flavor board. We are so proud and thank our faithful customers who voted for us in the 2013 PHL17 Hot Lists contest winning us 2nd place out of over 40 other shops ! Credit cards accepted

Wanted to take some home on Sunday, but we got there at 11:30 and they didn't open until 12. Oh well. The chocolate raspberry was soooo good and my nephew really like the cappuccino crunch. Wanted to try a few more flavors, but didn't want to be a total pig.

Just came back from Nelsons. The ice cream was great. It has a higher butterfat content, which makes it creamy and delicious. Reading their history, the place has been family owned for many years and the recipes haven't changed. They have a great variety of flavors - standards and unusual - something for every taste. The prices were reasonable. Nelson's is a real treasure. Can't Wait to go back.

Great ice cream and bake shop. They have plenty of flavors and I like that it is a local business. I am so glad they are open all year round now.

You go hear for real, fresh made ice cream. But there is more. Good baked items and a nice place to sit and relax. The ice cream tastes old fashioned because it is. The price can be a little steep and some dippers can be a little stingybut you'll get over it.
