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

Went to Nelson's with a niece who lives in the area. Death-by-Chocolate and Salted Caramel were delicious.

“Never knew this was here”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

I've lived in the Collegeville area for 14 years and never heard of this place. My brother-in-law and his family moved to Royersford last month and brought us here for ice cream. It was fantastic! Quaint shop, great service, and delicious home made icecream. I will definitely be back. Try the espresso explosion !

“Just plain awesome”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

This ice cream is the best I've ever had. Simple ingredients, and small town quaintness! Loved the new shoe fly pie ice cream, but my favorites are the coffee and chocolate raspberry!

“Nix Besser (None Better) because that's just what it is!!!!”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

Though we ate at a restaurant, we had our dessert at Nelson's. Nelson's is an absolute treasure.
The ice cream is simply heaven on earth. This ice cream parlor is run by the fourth generation of owners and is cute, clean and comfortable. The service was fast and friendly. We each had our favorite: my mom had Death by Chocolate, I had Chocolate Raspberry and my dad had Strawberry. Their cappuccino crunch is fantastic too. If you love ice cream - try Nelson's. You won't be disappointed!
