Kellerhaus is one of those shopping stops that can keep a wide variety of folks busy. This place has gifts galore including seasonal stuff for Halloween, a Christmas shop, and more. There is a candy shop, an ice cream parlor where you select your own toppings. Ice cream is quite good and you get to sit and look at the... More

You need to go here for the best ice cream on the planet, but it also has cool shops and little niche gifts and paraphernalia. You really come here to be able to make your own hot fude/butterscotch/caramel ice cream topped with strawberries/pineapple/marshmallow and topped with jimmies/nuts/M&Ms to be perfectly honest. Once you are done consuming your masterpiece, you can... More

Good ice cream quality and topping bar choices were quality and plentiful. Ice cream choices could have been larger to choose from. Candy shop was fantastic.

I stopped in here by chance this past weekend and was able to share the experience with my teenage daughter. I had visited Kellerhaus regularly as a child on vacation with my family, but hadn't been here for over 30 years. The location hasn't changed any, it still brings back the joy for me that it did when I first... More

The ice cream, toppings and whipped cream were so delicious and clearly made on site. We had the maple walnut, coffee, Cookie Monster, and strawberry. For toppings we had marshmallows, nuts, hot fudge, raspberries sauce, and butterscotch. The staff is sweet and friendly. The prices are very reasonable and the seating area is clean. Wonderful for any age.

Every Wednesday they have ice cream, a scoop for $1.00 with jimmies or sprinkles. There is also a topping bar you can purchase with the price of a regular ice cream. They make their own ice cream. There is a gift shop with eclectic items you can browse and purchase.

We have been going to Kellerhaus for many years. It has always been one of our favorite places to get ice cream and some souvenirs. Kellerhaus has something for everyone, and I always look for American-made products, which they have. I always enjoy shopping at a place that has history, too, and has served an area for many, many years.... More
