Good ice cream, maybe a little on the high price side but it is very good. A great place to stop at on a warm summer evening.

The Cone is favorite in West Chester. The ice cream is so creamy! You can drive thru or sit outside at the tables. Toddlers will enjoy the little rides. The orange/vanilla twist, what they are known for most is my husband's favorite and I like either just plain vanilla or a sundae with hot fudge.

We moved here earlier this year and tried The Cone...Oh my we were hooked. We've tried other ice cream parlors in the area and theres no comparison! The Cone is amazing and we go there at least once a week!

...is lunch from the drive-in window. This is no ice cream parlor... it's a cone-shaped Roadside stand that dispenses soft serve in any form you like. My personal fave is the pumpkin. I love to watch the kids on those goofy rides, too.

After tasting the ice cream you will understand why the Cone is rated one of the top dairy bars in the Cincinnati Oh area. Years ago while living in West Chester we visited the Cone quite often. Since moving from the area we still occasionally make the trip for the best ice cream I have ever tasted. The only downfall... More

The Cone is one of the favorite places in town to get Soft Serve Ice Cream. They have all varieties. The drive through is a little unusual but that is due to the limited area. The staff is always friendly and the prices are reasonable. It is a fun place to go on a hot summer night.

It's just soft ice cream with a line. Nothing special here, just an organized traffic jam and mediocre, overpriced ice cream.e

Fun family environment and great soft serve ice-cream. This is a favorite spot for our family to go for soft serve ice cream. We have a hard time waiting for opening day, and always miss it when it closes in the fall.

Thank Koreen2015

We Are Seasonal! We will re-open in Early April 2017! The Cone is a family owned and operated Soft Serve Ice Cream Store with 100s of menu options! Voted Cincinnati's Best Soft Serve! Opened in 1995! We make or enhance all of our Soft Serve and products directly in the store using only the best natural ingredients! All of our Soft Serves are Egg Free, Gluten Free, Soy Free, and Kosher! We have a Sugar Free Menu and Dairy Free Menu! Ice Cream Flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Peanut Butter. Sherbets: Orange. (Orange Vanilla Swirl is very popular). Italian Ices: Key Lime and Blue Raspberry. Yogurts (Switch out weekly): Sugar Free/Fat Free Vanilla (Every day), Black Raspberry, Blueberry, Peach, Caramel Macadamia Cappuccino, Banana, and Banana Caramel Foster. Our Whipped Cream is homemade in the store every day! Customer Favorites: Buckeye Parfait, Salted Caramel Truffle Parfait, Hot Fudge Brownie Treat, Nutty Buddy, Strawberry Shortcake, Banana Boats, and Hot Fudge Macaroon! Come out and try us! We, the Wren family, have been producing premium ice cream since 1973. Kenneth Wren owned and operated the K&W Creamy Whip in Reading, OH with the help of his wife and 3 kids. While vacationing in Florida in 1993, Ken spotted a 30-foot high ice cream shaped building. Ken bought the building and had it shipped to West Chester, OH in nine 1000 lb pieces. Construction delays caused the pieces to sit for an entire year. Finally, construction began. Much hard labor was put into rebuilding the unusual shape! On July 15th, 1995 The Cone had its grand opening! We had one cash register but found out the first week that we needed to order another one! From the beginning the eye-catching building brought families form the greater Cincinnati area. The Cone, which was intended to be a retirement hobby for Mom and Dad, now has a Drive Thru, Game Room, Kiddie Rides, and 3 Mobile Units! Although making quality product is a lot of work, we feel the finished product is well worth it! You be the judge!
