Kirt's ice cream is made there on the spot. My wife and I are ice cream fans and this is our "Go-to" place for ice cream. Always good.

Some rich, imaginative flavors, and all made in this shop, with Kirt himself behind the counter. Shop local and family-owned for the best!

Tucked I on the north wing of Albemarle Square next to the Carving Board and near ACAC is Kirts Ice Cream. This steamy hot summer has certainly made braving the construction on Rte 29 worth it to get an ice cream cone of a thick shake.

We decided to stop here at the end of our date night, and I'm so glad we did! Kirt's Ice Cream is the cutest little shop, and I love the fact that it is family owned. The ice cream is delicious and the flavor combinations are great too. The staff is friendly and willing to help. I'll definitely be returning... More

We brought our family from the west coast here as it's somewhere only found in Charlottesville. Now we're ice cream enthusiasts, we actually make our own ice cream because it's so difficult to find "good" ice cream, but Kirts is amazing. I would definitely return and the staff was more than helpful. And added bonus waffle cones are free!

My son is probably the greater devoté than I am but I have to admit it really is very good. I especially love the vanilla, which to me is the test of whether the ice cream is quality or not. It has a very rich dense vanilla flavor to it. They will pack pints as well for take out.

This place is owned by the same person who owned Maggie Moo's in Hollymead except now they make fantastic home made ice cream with mixings available. My daughter loves the birthday cake one. The strawberry is terrific too. If youhave gone to ACAC, stop by afterwards, it is delicious!

We were driving and saw the sign in the little Plaza and thought it was new but realized they have been there almost a year! We have been missing out, we got three pints mixed however we wanted- my fav so far cinnamon mixed with expresso, it is hard to pick because they were all very good. This is a... More
