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!

“Great!”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

It was a little too cold for ice cream but we went with the butter pecan anyway and it was amazing. The sandwiches were the surprise winner of our experience though. I didn't know they served them and the chicken salad sand was amazing. This is a Savannah staple and institution, would recommend.

“Ice Cream Treat”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Visited Leopold's in our southern swing with our bikes. Never been to Savannah before so we spent a few hours riding our bikes and happened upon Leopold's. What a treat. We had sandwiches and hot drinks as it was not very nice outside...especially on bikes.
Want to stop in again sometime. Enjoyed the rich heritage of a 90 year old establishment. What fun reading the movies posters on the wall of all the famous people some who visited this place.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

I had a caramel Sunday with a scoop of caramel swirl and a scoop of butterscotch pecan ice cream? It was delicious. In spite of its busyness, the empty tables were clean and not the usual overall stickiness common to many ice cream places. If I were to be critical about anything it would be that the portion was not particularly generous for the price.

“Nice little store”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

We were in Savannah for 3 nights and visited Leopold's twice. We like ice cream and this was very good. We had good service and there was room to sit and enjoy. If you are walking around town and need a break, this is a great stop!

“Homemade Ice Cream”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

All their ice cream is made in the store; nothing is spared!! Lots of butter, cream, and everything nice! I had the Caramel Swirl and my wife had a cappucino float. They have been in business for over 90 years! If in Savannah, DON'T miss this!!
