“WOW, What A Place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

So when you walk into the place you just stepped into a time machine which transported you back to the early 50's. With oldies music playing in the background and the decor of the soda fountain, it really sets the entire atmosphere of a time gone by. The ice cream and drinks are great but certainly on the expensive side but no more than say Graeters. I'll take the nostalgia and their ice cream over Graeters any day of the week and twice on Sundae! = )

This is a local must stop place if you want some of the best ice cream anywhere! Everything is fresh and made locally. The store is Oakley is as if you stepped back into time with all the marble and décor.

“How have I not written a review for this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

This is my favorite ice cream in the world! I live in St. Louis, but LOVE this ice cream, and must have it every time that I'm in Cincinnati! Best flavor for me is dutch holland chocolate, and I love it in an extra sincere soda. This last visit was incredible, they looked packed but service is still fast. Love that the Oakley location is 100 years old this year! It's not 100 years old for nothing! Also, bought a number of chocolates to take back home! Opera creams and almond bark are a must!

“Nostalgia is not worth the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

No doubt the old soda fountain is cool and there all kinds of sweet ice cream treats available but the experience is over-priced. I further realize that this is the equivalent of a micro-brewery with small runs and relatively high expenses. It's just that with Graeters and United Daity Farmers both also in the Cincinnati market there are better values.

“Takes you back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

Very good ice cream. When you go into this place it is like you go back in time. They have ice cream, Sundays, sodas, shakes and awesome candy. Great hours too.
