Description: No trip to Savannah is complete without a visit to Leopold's Ice Cream! Named the #5 Ice Cream in the World, Leopold's is a "Must-Do." You'll enjoy visiting our retro ice cream parlor, complete with old fashioned soda fountain and friendly soda jerks. You'll also experience a little piece of Hollywood in Savannah as you peruse Stratton Leopold's collection of film posters and props from films he has worked on over his 45 plus years in the movie industry! Leopold's Ice Cream was founded in 1919 by three immigrant brothers from Greece. They learned the art of candy and dessert from an uncle who had already settled in America. The brothers perfected the secret formulas and created the world famous Leopold's VeriBest™ ice cream.Our ice cream is made in house, one batch at a time, using family recipes handed down from the Leopold brothers. With our soda fountain creations and more than 20 flavors available at any given time, we've got something just for you!

“Delicious”

True to its reputation. We tried three different flavors and loved them all. I am pretty sure I could eat it every day.

“MMMM!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

My husband and I loved everything we ate at Leopold's! The employees were very chatty and we learned that one was from a town near ours in WI.

We first had some dinner. I had to try that famous cream cheese and olive sandwich - OMG, it was divine. Creamy & salty goodness! My husband really enjoyed his shrimp salad sandwich.

Then it was on to the ice cream. I had their lemon custard (wonderfully sweet and tart with lemon zest in it) and hubs had the coconut ice cream which also had actual coconut in it. So glad we stopped! I could go for one of those sandwiches right now...

“Great place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

Great ice cream, great service. Only 2 negative things are the poor design when it comes down to seeing all the ice cream flavors as there are people in front and behind you, so if you want to take a look at a certain flavor again, you need to squeeze by other customers. Another things is very few outside sittings!

“A Step Back in Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We sought out Leopold's only because of reading reviews on Tripadvisor; we otherwise would have walked right by. Stopping in mid-day only for ice cream, it was a memorable experience. Leopold's has all of the feel of an old-time ice cream shoppe. There are tables both inside and out where one can sit and enjoy a choice from their simple menu or the very delicious ice cream. We only had ice cream and sat outdoors on a beautiful afternoon.

When doing a walk-about of the Savannah Historic District, do yourself a favor and detour to Leopold's for lunch and/or ice cream. Every town deserves to have a quaint ice cream place like this. Savannah is lucky enough to have one.
