This place is a gem in Oakley square. I remember my mom taking me there when I was little and have been obsessed ever since. The ice cream is delicious- cinnamon is my absolute favorite- and the seasonal specialties are amazing.
They have a whole case in the Hyde Park Kroger location so I can pick some up when I'm grocery shopping, too. (Extra bonus points for being very close to where I live!) If you're looking for a delicious dessert with classic old world charm, this is your place!
Best ice cream, no contest! – The quality of this ice cream is unsurpassed. It is always completely creamy and flavorful. The sundaes have just the right amount of toppings to feel pampered without losing the flavor of the ice cream. The service is always fast and friendly, but on 3 occasions in the last 3 months, at least one person in the party had something incorrect with their sundae order (wrong flavor of ice cream, missing a topping, completely different sundae). There is free parking in a lot a few feet east of the restaurant, and the ambience has a charming French Quarter appeal.
One trip to this turn-of-the-century ice cream parlor and visitors are hooked on its 25 homemade flavors. – The Scene
Established in 1908, Aglamesis Brothers hasn't changed a bit from the Industrial Revolution to the Information Age. The marble tabletops, imported from Italy in 1914, and the trademark pink-and-white-striped awning create a decor reminiscent of a sweeter time in America's past. Over 25 ice cream flavors and chocolate confections are made right in the back of the parlor each day. Trademark sundaes, sodas, shakes and sorbets are all made from the finest ingredients.
The BEST ice-cream I have ever had!!! – This leaves Graeters in the DUST!!
This is the best ice-cream in the U.S.A. It has won awards as best in the USA too -- give it a try!!!
cincinnati's ice cream – this place has the best chocolate malts i've ever had, and i am of the opinion that, with their beautiful presentation and cute ambience, aglamesis' is much better than cincinnati' graeter's.
flavorful and creamy! – I think Aglamesis Brothers is the best ice cream and is overlooked by die hard Cincinnati-born Graeter fans. I'm impartial, having transplanted to Cincinnati 7 years ago, and believe that Aglamesis Brothers is quite possibly the best ice cream in the world!
First democracy and now Ice Cream – Yet another great contribution by the Greeks, along with Democracy and Cincinnati Chili. Hands down, best ice cream in town, no matter what Oprah may say.
I LUV Aglamesis! – Smoooooth. Creamy! Delicious! YUM! YUM! YUM! YUM! YUM! YUM! YUM!
Travel back in time! – This place is one of Cincinnati's treasures and well worth finding. Virtually unchanged for decades, its one of the last true ice cream parlors in the United States. They only have two locations and the family that started the place something like 100 years ago still has a hand in day-to-day operation.
Bring your out of town friends here... the ice cream is fantastic (doesn't leave a film in your mouth like Graeters) and you'll impress people with something truly unique.
Childhood memories – I remember when I was a kid and my father was very sick, driving to Aglamesis for a soda. Not your everyday soda but a fountain soda. "bubbly" water real strawberries and of course a cherry. Dad and his 6 kids all around the table, having a great time at a great place. They still have the best chocolate chip cones any where. They are well worth the 25 mile one way trip it takes. Thanks for the memories
