Savannah offers exciting places to dine out for all tastes. Which Savannah ice cream parlor has the best ice cream in Savannah? It all depends on what you like.


A lot of people like Leopold’s, located on East Broughton street. The decor resembles an old-fashioned ice cream parlor, not surprising considering Leopold’s first opened its doors in 1919. Leopold’s classic ice cream flavors include banana, caramel swirl, chocolate raspberry swirl, lemon custard, peppermint, rum bisque, rum raisin, and tutti frutti. Many flavors contain real Georgia pecans, and seasonal flavors are also available.

In addition to its ice cream scoops and sundae options, Leopold’s Ice Cream also has a full café menu. Coffee lovers can get their fix from specialty drinks like the Caffé Leopold (ice cream and espresso), cappuccino, or café latte. Diners can enjoy soups, salads, and sandwiches, such as the classic cream cheese and olive sandwich or the shrimp salad sandwich made with local shrimp. Leopold’s satisfies for a sit-down meal, a quick dessert, or both.

Bruster’s Ice Cream

On the other hand, Bruster’s Ice Cream is another local favorite. Bruster’s is a regional chain with almost all of its shops in the Eastern U.S., and the local shop is found on E. Victory Drive. Ice cream, sherbet, sorbet, and fruit ices are all on the Bruster’s menu. The many flavors include black cherry, butterscotch ripple, cherry almond, coconut pineapple, German chocolate cake, maple walnut, and sea salt caramel with toffee. Bruster’s even offers some no-sugar-added ice cream flavors.

In addition to its ice cream scoops, Bruster’s serves up sundaes, splits, ice cream cakes, shakes, floats, and frozen yogurt smoothies. You can also get ice cream sandwiches made with genuine Oreo cookies.

Below Zero Dessert Bar and Café

For the more adventurous eater, there’s Below Zero Dessert Bar and Café. With their original Broughton Street location and a newer Barnard Street location, the café offers Thai rolled ice cream. Below Zero is owned by husband-and-wife team David and Christine Cutlip, and Christine’s Thai-American dad Timmy Tsoi brought rolled ice cream to Savannah. In addition to being delicious to eat, Thai rolled ice cream is fun to watch being made. The Cutlips’ café also offers Asian-style tea drinks including bubble tea with tapioca pearls. And they also serve crepes!
