We stopped to pick up a gift for a dinner we were going to and a birthday treat for grandma. We bought 6 different treats including the chocolate pie, pecan pie, and cheesecake. All were scrumptious! The service was slow but the girls helping us were very pleasant. Prices reasonable. Will go again next time in Louisville.

This has been our #1 go to stop every time we visit Louisville! We always get a Dutch apple to go!! Today we got Lemon Meringue and yellow cupcake with caramel icing. Ice cream is always a must!

Mary B, thanks for your kind words. The meringue pies are like my grandmother would make. She would make meringue pies on Sunday and we would hand crank ice cream in the back yard with our grandfather.

I have only had one thing from this place but would fly down to Louisville tomorrow for the caramel frosted cupcakes! We did a caramel frosted cake for my mother's birthday and it was superb.

The ice cream here is amazing. They also offer a huge array of cakes, pies, cookies, and cupcakes. Everything is fresh and homemade and pretty inexpensive. I'd recommend stopping in.

This homemade Ice Cream is incredible. It opened in 1982. Everything on the menu is made in the store. They sell a big selection of pies and cakes as well. They have 9 locations in Kentucky. open 7 days a week. They know their "ICE CREAM".

Stopped in after dinner while in town based on other reviews. They weren't wrong - this place has awesome treats! If you can't find something in here to satisfy your sweet tooth there's not much hope for you. Cakes, cookies, pies, puddings, ice cream...you name it. We had the banana pudding - excellent! Chocolate pecan pie - great! And a... More

One of my favorite dessert spots for years now. The original is still the best. Never had a bad slice of pie, and service is only slow when the line is out the door.
