No atmosphere, nothing to say except the ICE CREAM IS WONDERFUL AND VERY COMFORTABLE TO ENJOY. Why else should a customer care since you wait in line most of time, knowing and watching the anticipation on the customer's faces; as they will soon be enjoying...More

Not sure if there is any better ice cream around here at all!!!! WE usually take home quarts, when we are looking for a bit of a treat. The best of the year, in my opinion is the Peppermint Stick which is only available in...More

We love the ice cream at Handel's but it is really hard to choose from do many great flavors. So we share a 4 scoop sampler, great value and you get to taste 4 flavors.

It’s a really nice little Icecream spot. No indoor seating. But enough outdoor seats. Nice friendly staff. Good quality Icecream Seems fresh and homemade. Nice interesting selection of flavored Icecream. I recommend a visit.

But don't worry, because they usually have four windows opening up take orders, and the line moves fast. Owned by a local family, and everything is made on the premises. Your only problem will be figuring out which of the many flavor you want!

Absolutely the only place to go for homemade ice cream on the Main Line. There's always a long and interesting menu with seasonal creations. Everything is hand scooped. It's not surprising there's generally a long line at the windows.

Love the ice cream and flavors you can pick from at Handel's. They offer a wide selection of items to pick from. The staff is usually quite friendly. The lines could be managed especially when really long.

It's just okay. The ice cream is served VERY soft. Its already starting melt when it is handed to you. There never seems to be enough staff. That, along with prices that seem too high, keep this place from a 5.

You cannot get closers to homemade than Handel's. Just be prepared to eat it quickly because homemade ice cream melts very fast especially in the hot weather. Be prepared for a long line and a long wait. However, there is a longer list of ice...More
