This is by far the best ice cream I have ever had. It is creamy and surely they do NOT skimp on the quality ingredients- therefore do not expect it to be a low calorie place! So if you are going to indulge and eat ice cream, why bother with a low fat kind that doesn't taste as good? You won't be disappointed by going to Kilwin's. Also they make their own cones right in the front window, along with fudge and other chocolates for sale. There is always a line out the door but the many helpful workers behind the counter allow for speedy service.

Delicious chocolate. Fabulous ice cream. All homemade and buy some for later. Love those chocolate graham crackers.

Beautiful creative preparations of sweets and ice cream. I have never see this before: They bake their own waffle cones right in front of you. Amazing!

Many flavors of ice cream, and server was happy for me to test a bunch, even though they were busy in the store.

The near 100 degree temp on the day I was there helped, but I am pretty sure this was some of the best ice cream I have had!

There is plenty of crappy tourist trap snackage in this town. This place is several cuts above, and the price premium is not huge. Go there.

When in Newport I always stop in for their fudge. Very good fudge. The coffee is pretty good as well.
