I grew up around farmers that made ice cream with real ingredients....this is as close as it gets....if you give this place a poor review maybe it's not their issue....I have been going here for 25 years ever since I moved to Cin. and this is the only ice cream parlor in Cincinnati period. Great people great spot fabulous ice... More

This is one of the best ice creams I had in my life, and it is up there with Savannah's Leopold's, on a category by themselves. The ambience of the place and the wonderful old gentleman that runs it, Mr Aglamesis himself, add to the experience. (and for Johnny Cash fans like me: Rumour has it that the man himself... More

The debate will go on forever. But in my opinion Aglemesis ice cream is the best. Graeters is outstanding also. And we are so lucky to have 2 of the top 5 nationally rated Ice cream makers right here in Cincinnati. Walking into Aglemesis in Oakley takes you back to the days of the old fashioned fountain soda shops. The... More

This place has the best hand dipped chocolates, and the best ice cream around. Everything I have ever gotten there has been delicious.

The ice cream is delicious in an old time ice cream parlor.the best ice cream. Small place that is paced in the summer. Even the usual flavors are anything but ordinary

I know many people here think the "other" place has better ice cream but I disagree. However, I am a Gold Star fan also so who knows for sure. In any case, I love the store, love the old fashioned parlor feel of Aglamesis, love the table service - all above and beyond. Their ice cream is amazing but they... More

Aglamesis was founded in Cincinnati and is one if my favorite local ice cream stores. I have been to the Oakley and Montgomery stores many times and they offer a quaint ice cream experience where they serve their own French pot ice creams.

I grew up on Graeter's, but the mint chocolate chip ice cream I ordered at Aglamesis Brothers was faaaaar and away better than Graeter's (which has become so commercial and modern! Where's the atmosphere?) The parlor wasn't maybe wildly clean, but it has great personality. I think the mint ice cream was made with real peppermint oil, and there was... More

Grew up in Cincinnati and of course, I love Graeters. But when I go back I head to Aglamesis to order the Swiss Chocolate Sundae. If I can go twice, I do. The sauces are just better than most I have tasted. The ice creams are lighter in texture but with intense flavor. They have the full array of a... More

Everyone talks about Graeters, but Aglamesis has always had the best ice cream and candies in town. The Oakely location has it original marble topped counter. Sodas and sundaes are wonderful; take home a pint of ice cream and 1/2 pound chocoaltes and you will be happy.
