If Savannah is known for any one thing, food would be it – and that includes an incredible selection of local dessert destinations. Find scoops, ice cream sandwiches, milkshakes, and so much more at these four local ice cream shops around town.
The Ice Cream Stop
Situated just east of Savannah, in Pooler, Georgia, is The Ice Cream Shop (920-G Morgans Corner Road). And trust us when we say it’s worth the 15-minute drive just for a scoop of ice cream. From almond fudge to rocky road and simple classic flavors, this ice cream shop has it all.
Ben & Jerry’s
When it comes to truly delicious ice cream, Ben & Jerry’s (25 E Broughton St.) has the flavors you can count on. Satisfy your sweet tooth with any of their classic flavors, like Cherry Garcia®, Chip Happens, or Everything But The...®. Or switch it up with a new flavor, like Strawberry Topped Tart, Tiramisu, or Totally Unbaked™.
Leopold's Ice Cream
For over a century, Leopold’s Ice Cream has been serving up scoops in Savannah’s Historic District while using its unchanged, original recipe. This old-timey parlor brings you a delicious treat in practically any ice cream form you crave – take your pick from sundaes, shakes, scoops, and even ice cream sandwiches.
Olympia Cafe’s Peaches and Crème
Paired alongside the Olympia Cafe in Savannah’s Historic District is a true dessert shop gem. Peaches and Crème has over 30 unique gelato and ice cream flavors to select from, which means there’s always something new to try.
