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!

“Yummy!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

I was told NOT to leave Savannah without a trip to the "world famous" Leopold's, and it did not disappoint. It was located right across from my B & B. I tried the chocolate chip coffee ice cream, and it was awesome!

“Nothing Too Exciting”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We went because it was supposed to be very highly rated according to our tour guide.

We got the pumpkin ice cream for about $3.50 a scoop. To be frank the pumpkin spice ice cream we buy from Publix which even has crust mixed in it is better. We get a whole carton for the price of a scoop.

The movie memporbilla is very interesting as is the history of the the owner and the family and the ice cream parlor.

“Cone Lickin' Good”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

My wife and I got off the Savannah tour bus to check out Leopold's . We were pleasantly surprised by the variety of the ice cream selection and the quality of the ice cream. The staff was most accommodating in allowing us the sample a few of the flavors until we got the right combination. The caramel crunch was a must for me!! Take time to enjoy a mid day treat as you tour historic Savannah. Make sure you check out the autographed pictures of all the movie stars that adorn the walls. Happy lickin'!!

“An Olde Tyme Ice Cream Parlor”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

This soda fountain is a wonderful family-friendly stop for delicious ice cream when visiting Savannah. The old-time ice cream parlor decor, combined with historic family and Hollywood photos, makes eating ice cream (or other treats) an extraordinary experience.
Note: It may be difficult to choose a particular ice Cream flavor - they offer many!
A recommended stop!
