I enjoyed a cookie dough cone and my son enjoyed a chocolate cone. Spotted the place after dinner and enjoyed the cones on our walk back to our hotel. Very nice staff.

Great homemade ice cream, about 12-14 flavors, toppings, add ins (like Oreos), choice of cones (or in a cup), yogurt and a great aroma will draw you in regardless of the time of day. Pretty decent service considering the place is popular with the University of Pittsburgh student population- so don't be put off if you see a line to... More

We enjoyed the ice cream. The shop is small, but quaint. The service was excellent. We would definitely go back.

More than 60 homemade flavors - and a willingness to to take and offer you suggestions. Cones (cake or sugar) and sundaes, shakes, floats, malteds, pies and cakes - not a place for someone on a diet!

I went here at the recommendation of someone stating ice cream was great and shows pictures on the web of large filled ice cream cones - that was not the case. They are homemade cones but not greatly filled like the pictures. Was nothing differentand not worth the taxi ride - hagen daz is better!

We visited Pittsburgh for the PITT vs. Villanova game this last weekend. The game was hot, however, the ice cream was the hit of the trip. Cookies and Cream piled high in a waffle cone. Having my tween chomping down on ice cream and loving it all. The prices are VERY good and the variety is great.

The ice cream was okay, I've definitely had better so I'm not sure what the hype is all about. Really can't believe it's in the top 10 nationally? Maybe they meant in Pittsburgh.

Dave & Andy's is, quite simple, my favorite ice cream place anywhere. The ice cream is made on the premises, as are the waffle cones. You can smell the cones baking down the street, and each cone gets an M&M in the bottom to prevent leaks. There is always a selection of basic/classic flavors and then a few more interesting...

There is a reason this is annually rated a top 10 ice cream shop in the country. Great ice cream and even better waffle cones. Don't miss it.

We went for a college visit. Didn't realize their hours and came about 20 minutes before closing. The ice cream was ok but we were practically getting kicked out. There were some people coming in about 10 minutes before closing time and were told to quickly make their decision and order. As we were leaving the employee closed the door... More
