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 28 flavors available at any given time, we've got something just for you!

“Glad we Stopped In!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

As my husband & I were running back to our hotel we passed right by Leopold's, we hesitated for just a minute because it was about to pour down raining & the line was out the door. My husband loves ice cream so we just went for it. It has a great history & the employees are really nice. The ice cream was great, very creamy! The service was fast (even though there are so many choices). It fits in with the charm of the city! What a treat!

“Our first meal”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

I asked my girlfriend to marry me at Pulaski Square and this was immediately our first stop right after. The ice cream here was amazing and the service went right along with it. It's a movie memorabilia-themed ice cream parlor that is old fashioned in its ways. It's a historic stop in the city that is a big place in the city. a definite must of the town.

“Worth the line!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

The line wrapped out the door and I thought to myself, is this really going to be worth it? But it was. This ice cream shop has a great old school ambiance that just seems to fit in with Savannah. On a warm day, this definitely hit the spot. Be sure to check this out when you stop in Savannah.
