Richmond, VA's Best Ice Cream
This list will evolve over time as new restaurants enter, old ones leave or slip.
|(1) Gelati Celesti|| 8906 W Broad St # A
Crom, Gelati Celesti sits atop the ice cream mountain, a king of
kings laughing at the swarm of chains entering the market*. There is a reason why so many fine area restaurants
outsource their ice cream to Gelati for their dessert menus.
Best In Richmond by this
Also, try Boyer's Ice Cream (5714 Patterson Avenue)...They use Gelati Celesti ice cream in their store!
|(2) Ray's Italian Water Ice And Frozen Custard||3039 Lauderdale Dr
8023 West Broad St (804) 290-4448
|Best frozen custard in town (not quite at the level of Carl's in Fredericksburg, but it'll suffice). True Philadelphia style Italian ice is another specialty|
|(3) Bevís Homemade Ice Cream||2911 West Cary St (804) 204-2387|
|A mandatory stop before watching a movie at the Byrd. 2nd best traditional ice cream shop in Richmond. Crossroads Coffee also uses Bev's to weave killer milkshakes.|
|(4) DeLuca Gelato||1362 Gaskins Rd (Gayton Crossing Shopping Center) (804) 741-3202|
|Best bet for Italian style gelato and sorbet. Maybe, the classiest "ice cream" shop in town.|
|(5) The Station Cafe||113 S Railroad Ave Ashland, VA (804) 798-5632|
|They serve Garber's ice cream which is made in Winchester, Virginia. A lovely cone to watch the trains in Ashland.|
|(6) Dairy Bar Restaurant||1602 Roseneath Rd (804) 355-1937|
|Best hot diner food with milkshake combination.|
Lot of chain options in town as well (in order of my favorites):
