This place has been around since 1908 and it is very vintage. They offer a lot of options based on French vanilla ice cream, including flavored soda floats. The Italian ice is excellent. They also offer numerous chocolates and candies. Free parking is available in a nearby lot.

MMMmmmm good ... great. Rich, well made ice cream and related goodies. Even though pseudo experts declared it second best (to Graeters), those individuals were blatantly not correct.
In addition to the excellently made products, the shop in Oakley boasts an "olde fashion" soda fountain and table/chair settings.
Well worth a visit when in Cincinnati.

I have lauded the ice cream and treats at Aglamesis Brothers for years!

I could go into great detail and specifics but have chosen not to, due to the fact that EVERYTHING I have ever had there was FAR above and beyond my expectations!

I have sample many things and taken many people to this beloved gem. Never have I had even a mediocre comment. Everyone absolutely raves about whatever they get.

This small old fashioned beautifully quaint ice cream, soda and candy shop is everything that one remembers or dreams of from stories of the past. This wonderful place harkens back to a time when times were slower and things were hand crafted. I drive almost an hour to have my dessert there and share the beauty of this place with others.

Thank you Aglamesis Brothers
You have and always will be number 1 to me!

As always enjoy

Step back in time to the old fashioned ice cream parlors and you will have a good understanding of what Aglamesis is like. This place is vintage and a must see if you are in Cincinnati.
The assortment of chocolates is breathtaking. Then, the many ice cream , sundaes and milkshake choices will leave you wanting to try them all.
There are quaint lil tables with old fashioned wire back chairs. Waitress service which was attentive and polite.
We had the homemade waffle cone with blackberry chip ice cream which was delicious. Also, we had the 3 step which was 3 scoops of ice cream with a topping of choice and fresh whipped cream and nuts-yum!
Whether you come with a group; just two or alone; this ice cream parlor is nostalgic and delicious. Enjoy!

It's not a chain but normally if you meet someone who knows Cincinnati they might ask you if you triedthis place.
It has the old ice cream parlor feel.
You can have lunch here..
Then get the ice cream !
Lots to do around Oakley ( where it is located)
