So I am lactose intolerant and most of the time the ice cream that is available to me is some sort of fruit flavor sorbet thing. Well, if you love chocolate and you are lactose intolerant this is the place to get your chocolate sorbet! It is the creamiest best stuff on earth! And have it on a home made... More

We saw their web site and were intrigued. The idea of concentrating on eight flavors is genius. Quality and creativity were evident in todays selection. We had Chocolate Sorbet and Pumpkin Ice Cream and loved them both. The Chocolate was dark and luscious. The pumpkin was a very pleasant surprise. The shop is connected to their chocolate shop which is... More

Fabulous homemade ice cream, the best you will have! The Salted caramel is my favorite so far.. Their ice cream is so rich and flavorful you only need half of what you would normally eat to be satisfied. Get some just for you, and some for the family/friends/SO, you will not want to share it.

Hedonist Artisan Ice Cream offers some the very best ice creams in the Rochester area. Luscious and creamy, the ice creams vary from time to time, but are always delicious treats.

This is ice cream pallor has some of the most imaginative flavors. I LOVED bacon peanut bark. My wife had a great chocolate sorbet (vegan). Their macha ice cream was the best I've had. On my list to return to next time I'm in ROC.

The ice cream at Hedonist Artisan Ice Cream is to die for. Lots of interesting, unusual and delicious flavors. Unfortunately, the quality of the service does not match. I have been there three or four times and each time have been treated as if I were an interruption to the service person's day.

I didn't think it was all that great, but then I'm not into artisan creations, I just like simple old chocolate and vanilla. They did have a vast selection of hand made ice creams and they also have hand made chocolates, which I found the best of my visit. If you're into specialty ice cream, this is the place you... More

Delicious, unusual flavors that hit the spot. Homemade goodness. It's nice to be able to sample before choosing. Quaint little place with a friendly atmosphere.

Made right there. Friendly staff. Great flavors. Located within walking distance to University of Rochester. The area seems to be evolving into and hip and trendy place to be.
