My husband and I visit one of their locations around the city every year when we are in town for the NSRA Convention. I recently took a road trip with my two teenage daughter and we planned a stop here. We weren't disappointed. We had the Shaker Sugar pie, a caramel upside down cupcake, and the Georgia cake.

After a day of antique shopping and enjoying the weather it was time for taking home something sweet. I opted for a piece of chocolate silk cake while my wife decided on the German chocolate cake. Both were fresh and sinful. Service was friendly and quick. This is probably our favorite Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen location on Bardstown... More

Another visit to Louisville and of course, another visit to this awesome kitchen! I tried about 5 different items and each one better than the last. German Chocolate Cake, Georgia Cake, Dutch Apple Pie, Key Lime Pie and my favorite Banana Pudding! Bring your money and your appetite.

The pies, cakes, cookies are wonderfully delicious, but our lunch we had was not at all. The soup we had was cold and had to request they heat it up. The sandwich was not on the bread I requested, the service was "VERY' slow, which is always the case when we have gone there and for future, I will not... More

We stopped to pick up a gift for a dinner we were going to and a birthday treat for grandma. We bought 6 different treats including the chocolate pie, pecan pie, and cheesecake. All were scrumptious! The service was slow but the girls helping us were very pleasant. Prices reasonable. Will go again next time in Louisville.

I have only had one thing from this place but would fly down to Louisville tomorrow for the caramel frosted cupcakes! We did a caramel frosted cake for my mother's birthday and it was superb.

This homemade Ice Cream is incredible. It opened in 1982. Everything on the menu is made in the store. They sell a big selection of pies and cakes as well. They have 9 locations in Kentucky. open 7 days a week. They know their "ICE CREAM".
