Description: No trip to Savannah is complete without a visit to Leopold's Ice Cream! Named One of the Top 10 Ice Cream Parlors in the World, Leopold's is a "Must-Do." You'll love our retro ice cream parlor, complete with old-fashioned soda fountain & 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 brothers from Greece. They learned the art of candy and dessert from an uncle who had settled in America. The brothers perfected their secret formulas and created the now world-famous Leopold's VeriBest™ ice cream. Our ice cream is made in historic, Downtown Savannah, one batch at a time, using family recipes handed down from the Leopold brothers. With our full soda fountain menu & more than 28 flavors available at any given time, we've got something just for you!

We enjoyed a nice ice cream break at Leopold's. You can try the various flavors before settling on the one you like. This is the home of tutti frutti, so be sure to try it!

For a tourist it was a good experience with great ice cream, but do ask how the queuing & ordering goes if you're not used to it. Might be simple if you know, but...
Friendly, great range & atmospheric. Eat in or out but it's not that big once families get planted at tables in the back!
Also does lunch snacks & we can recommend the soup too.
Lots of locals popping in and a permanent, fast-moving queue - always a good sign.

The ice cream store had a lot of nostalgia. The ice cream flavors were many. The cool store and cold ice cream was a welcome relief from the heat.

This place has lots of charm and character due to its authentic vintage style but, most importantly, the ice cream is fantastic! There's not tons of seating and you may have to wait in line if you go at a peak time but it is worth it. Gluten free flavors are marked on the menu. Try the Savannah Socialite.

World class ice cream and home to the originally tutti fruity. A great stop for a cone after dinner, but expect to wait in line. Yes, it's that good.
