If you’re looking for the perfect scoop of ice cream, check out these three parlors near our apartments in Louisville, KY. Even better, each one supports the community through charities or by using local ingredients to create their cool treats.

Louisville Cream

Louisville Cream sources their dairy and mix-ins locally and uses house-made jams, sauces, and baked goods to create their award-winning ice cream—and this creamery has won many awards. Their popular Banana Pudding flavor was recently named best ice cream in Kentucky by Food Network. In addition, major publications, such as Food and Wine and USA Today, have also recognized the shop. To enjoy this famous local ice cream, you can visit the scoop shop downtown, which is only three minutes from our Louisville apartments. You can also buy pints from participating grocery stores. 


This ice cream shop has been in business since 1867, so you know they’ve had plenty of time to perfect their recipes. Their love for the Louisville community shows through their many giving-back programs. They donate to after-school programs, education initiatives, children’s charities, and the LMPD community outreach program. Check out their page to see their staple flavors and go into their shop to try their seasonal flavors. 

Liege & Dairy Ice Cream and Waffles

This handmade, small-batch ice cream is non-GMO and hormone-free, and they add extra charm with their European-style street waffles. Meanwhile, Liege and Dairy Ice Cream and Waffles supports Louisville by sourcing ingredients from local markets and farms. 

With so many options in Louisville, it’s easy to find the perfect ice cream shop to satisfy any sweet tooth.
