“Excellent home made icecream and reasonable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

My family and I ate here for dessert and it was excellent. We looked on Tripadvsor to find something other than our usual Greaters! We found this place on Madison Rd, right next to a really cool book store, the Blue Manatee. My ice cream sandwich was excellent, I had pecan vanilla between two chocolate like wafers!! Really good!! My daughter had the lemon freeze AKA, lemon sorbet. She enjoyed it as well. This place also sold candy, chocolate exc. it's like an old fashion ice cream shop with a soda bar. Great service, great prices, good icecream.

“Peach Sorbet at Aglamesis Brothers Tastes Like Summer!”

The other flavors do not disappoint. We love this delightful ice cream parlor with friendly service, delicious ice cream, and those silver dishes! So sorry we live hundreds of miles away.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Aglamesis Brothers have the best ice cream ever. Much better than Graeters. The handmade candy is yum.

“The. Best. Dessert.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Most Cincinnatians debate the best ice cream in the city between Graeter's and UDF. That's probably because there's no debate about Aglamesis. This isn't just ice cream: it's pure, frozen, sugary love. Not to mention Aglamesis hand made chocolate desserts and other non-ice cream fare. UDF is convenient. Graeter's has achieved commercial success and is even exporting their ice cream out of the city. Aglamesis is where we go to celebrate gladly driving past numerous UDF's and Graeter's. The raspberry chocolate chip is a classic. I often try their seasonal flavors. Then there's the nectar soda. I'm not sure what's in it, but it should be served with a side of insulin. Watching them prepare a nectar soda is like watching a mad scientist at work in a lab. It's been my favorite since I was a kid and continues to be my go-to dessert when I want to splurge.
