This place has the best hand dipped chocolates, and the best ice cream around. Everything I have ever gotten there has been delicious.

The ice cream is delicious in an old time ice cream parlor.the best ice cream. Small place that is paced in the summer. Even the usual flavors are anything but ordinary

I know many people here think the "other" place has better ice cream but I disagree. However, I am a Gold Star fan also so who knows for sure. In any case, I love the store, love the old fashioned parlor feel of Aglamesis, love the table service - all above and beyond. Their ice cream is amazing but they... More

Aglamesis was founded in Cincinnati and is one if my favorite local ice cream stores. I have been to the Oakley and Montgomery stores many times and they offer a quaint ice cream experience where they serve their own French pot ice creams.

I grew up on Graeter's, but the mint chocolate chip ice cream I ordered at Aglamesis Brothers was faaaaar and away better than Graeter's (which has become so commercial and modern! Where's the atmosphere?) The parlor wasn't maybe wildly clean, but it has great personality. I think the mint ice cream was made with real peppermint oil, and there was... More

Grew up in Cincinnati and of course, I love Graeters. But when I go back I head to Aglamesis to order the Swiss Chocolate Sundae. If I can go twice, I do. The sauces are just better than most I have tasted. The ice creams are lighter in texture but with intense flavor. They have the full array of a... More

Everyone talks about Graeters, but Aglamesis has always had the best ice cream and candies in town. The Oakely location has it original marble topped counter. Sodas and sundaes are wonderful; take home a pint of ice cream and 1/2 pound chocoaltes and you will be happy.

Aglamesis in Cincinnati is well known, and I've enjoyed for years and years. Unfortunately don't have the opportunity often, but splurged when early to the Montgomery location. Simple scoop of peach ice cream, available only around August. Served in vintage metal cup, with metal spoon and glass of water. Old time Jazz in the background. A nostalgic, relaxing, delicious break... More

At Aglamesis you step right into an old school ice cream parlor. It's a one of a kind experience. You can't go wrong with the two-step!

Crammed full of tasty home-made chocolates of all shapes and sizes on one side, and traditional old-fashioned ice-cream on the other, Aglamesis Brothers in Oakley resembles the traditional Greek neighborhood zacharo plastions, where you can sit down to have a high-quality dessert and a coffee. Among the rotating seasonal scoops, pistachio ice cream was our choice of delight. Satisfying amount... More
