“Such a fun quaint, vintage way to enjoy ice cream”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

True to it's looks from yester-year, this great little ice cream/candy shop has it all. The ice-cream is delicious, on the caliber of another great Cincinnati ice-cream shop who loads their ice cream full of chocolate candy bar size chunks in their many flavors!! Sit in side at the bar or at table and watch the serves bring water and ice cream to everyone! I love that the place and all the serve ware are all from the past and the service was quick and polite!

“So cool and so worth a visit”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

What a neat spot! Definitely a must visit with little ones. They won't experience ice cream like this anymore. Order something special off the menu, you won't be disappointed.

“Step back in time at Aglamesis”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

The first ice cream parlor we've been to with sit-down service from a waiter.

The ice cream was very, very good... obviously homemade with quality ingredients. My wife had a cup of raspberry choc chip, which she loved. My daughter had a waffle cone with mocha chip, which she thoroughly enjoyed. I had a "two step" sundae, with two scoops of banana ice cream (very, very tasty!), pineapple sauce (wow!), whipped cream, and toasted coconut. It was delightful!

Total bill was $12.5 plus tip.

“Wonderful Ice Cream”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Our family has been going to Aglamesis for 30 years for birthdays, graduations, you name it. The ice cream is consistently great, and the atmosphere is wonderful. The ice cream parlor appears much as it would have in the 1900's. There is a marble counter with Tiffany lights and tall stools you can sit at and watch them make your order. While the place is primarily an ice cream parlor, one can also order sandwiches before getting to the ice cream. But the ice cream is the draw of this place. There is also a location in the Montgomery part of Cincinnati, but we would suggest the original in the Oakley area because of the atmosphere. Free parking nearby. Does not take reservations.

“Amazing”
Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

Best ice cream I've ever had. Graeters doesn't even come close to touching it. Just as pricey as Graeters, but so much better!!!
