This ice cream shop is worth stopping by. Our ice cream was great and they also sell fudge and chocolate covered Rice Krispy treats. Sooo good!

Awesome selection of ice creams and chocolates. I'm sure they had other things for sale but I was pretty focused on the ice cream when I went in. Great place to cool off and have a tasty treat!

We all scream for ice cream! While on a cruise, we stopped in Newport for the day. After touring two mansions, we indulged in Kilwin's ice cream. All of the flavors we ordered were creamy and delicious! Well worth the calories! The line moved quickly...More

Thank you for your review. We're so glad you enjoyed our ice cream. Toasted Coconut ice cream is our number 2 top selling flavor and is available all year long.

generous portions about $5.00 each...local creamery, no sugar free....or soft serve. a popular spot you can watch them make the cones and waffle baskets...

Thank you for your review. Kilwins makes their own ice cream from some of the same recipes they've been using since 1947. We do offer a No Sugar Added Caramel Ripple flavor ice cream.

My husband had a hankering for some ice cream...so off to Kilwin's we went. It is pretty difficult to find a parking spot there, so I waited in the car for him. He LOVED the ice cream!
