Description: Handcrafted for Five Generations Since 1870. Louis and Regina Graeter started handcrafting Graeter's Ice Cream in 1870. Today, generations later, we proudly remain a family owned and operated company. This is made possible thanks to you, our legion of loyal fans. For a century and a half, Graeter's has remained steadfast in our commitment to making ice cream not the easy way, but rather, the only way it should be: by hand, with real cream, sugar and eggs, in 2 gallon French Pots one batch at a time.

This is Cincinnati at it's best. If you like ice cream you will love Gaeter's fresh hand dipped home made ice cream. The bakery goods are great as well. Try the cup cakes or if you are having a party the cakes. It says it in the name Greater!

It's just a 5-10 minute walk from Residence Inn Downtown Cincinnati but it's worth the effort. The local favorite is their raspberry ice cream.

I don't even normally like ice cream, but Graeter's is another story! It's so rich and those chunks of chocolate are delicious! I wouldn't recommend the cookies as much, but ice cream and ice cream cakes are yummy! Black raspberry chip is their specialty flavor.

Graeter's made fame by the chocolate chip ice-cream they developed. However, they have let quality slide and now function on reputation more than innovation. The ice-cream remains competent but not special. It is just another parlor. The backed goods are poor and worse each year. Be careful you do not purchase day old stale rolls. The candy on the shelve is just mass produced junk repackaged in the house label. Overpriced and mediocre. It is heartbreaking to have this once proud shop go down the tubes.
