Had to wait in line for a short while because this place is so popular. I found out why. I ordered one of their most popular flavors, black raspberry chocolate chip. I never had that flavor before and was reluctant to try it -- but...More

We went to Graeter's ice cream during the Clifton Festival. The ice cream is the best and it is a great little neighborhood.

Small batch made ice cream using the French pot method. Especially known for various " chip" flavors with large chunks of chocolate. Most popular is the raspberry chocolate chip.

Raspberry chocolate chip... The stuff of dreams! Yes there is national competition, yet would consider a "top 10"... Sundaes equally as delightful, hard to miss the quality

This was a great sweet treat to in the evening. The staff seemed friendly. The game was on in the fountain square and the ice cream . . . Was the best butter pecan I've ever eaten.

It's famous for a reason. Graeters' is hand-packed creamy goodness. At almost $4 per large scoop, it may be worth getting a pint for not much more. Black raspberry chip is popular, and the chips are really slabs of chocolate. Try mocha chip, it's got...More

Handcrafted for Five Generations Since 1870. Louis and Regina Graeter started handcrafting Graeter's Ice Cream in 1870. Today, generations later, we proudly remain a family owned and operated company. This is made possible thanks to you, our legion of loyal fans. For a century and a half, Graeter's has remained steadfast in our commitment to making ice cream not the easy way, but rather, the only way it should be: by hand, with real cream, sugar and eggs, in 2 gallon French Pots one batch at a time.
