This is a local ice cream shop that uses unique ingredients to make delicious ice cream flavors. Yes, it will cost more than baskin robbins or ben and jerrys - $3.29 for a single scoop and $4.99 for a double. Its a very different ice cream experience. I enjoyed the Earl Grey the most - not too sweet and a... More

We decided to come here after visiting the zoo because the lunch we had there filled us up but we wanted to get some food at least somewhere. The staff was extremely friendly and is really good about answering questions for newcomers. You can sample before you buy which is good because they have a great variety of interesting ice... More

The flavors offered at Sweet Cream are incredible -- from Earl Grey to Cherry Cheesecake to Amaretto to Sweet Onion (seriously!), they have so many options that you'll be tempted to try them all! Two scoops will set you back about $5, and you are allowed to sample as many as you like so long as you're making a purchase.... More

I have not stopped thinking about and craving the ice cream I had here two days ago. I definitely will be back next time I am in Columbia. Their flavors change and are not just your standard chain ice cream flavors. I had the Panna Cotta with candied orange rind flavor and it was fabulous. My guy had the dark... More

Interesting flavor variations, some local flavors make for yummy ice cream treats. Variety changes very often. I love the outside benches. Inside decor is a little sparce.

Very groovy ice cream parlor! Loved the vibe, and the ice cream was out of this world! The young lady working the counter was friendly and polite!

I was wondering around the city and luckily stumbled upon this place. I thought the inside was super cute and felt that it really conveyed the idea of a hand crafted ice cream shop. There were a lot of interesting flavors available. They all looked quite good, but I was feeling a bit traditional when I went. I got the... More

Wonderful selection of freshly made ice cream and sorbets. My personal favorites are the coffee bean ice cream and the apple cider sorbet.

I was very surprised at the flavors that offer. Not your standard ice cream parlor, but delicious all the same.I had a double scoop of Whisky Pecan at about 6 1/2 bucks. Tasty. The shop is located across the street from a really cool art museum so it was fun to stroll one evening, eating our ice cream and looking... More

Hand crafted, local ingredients, organic milk. Unique flavors and old standards. You can ask for a taste of anything before you buy it. I stop in periodically for a sweet treat, and I always wonder why it has been so long since my last visit; then I remember that I'd be big as a house if I came every day... More
