We were in Savannah, GA for several days so naturally we consulted our favorite websites to find the best $$ restaurants in town. Ranked at #4 with over 1,200 comments was Leopold’s Ice Cream. Is this serious? Well, we are very enthusiastic ice cream and sorbet aficionados so this rating question would justify a stop on one of our long afternoon walks. Our ice cream and sorbet stop was, of course, for verification purposes only.
As you step in the shop you step back in time. The parlor is old fashioned with a proper soda fountain. Old movie posters, movie equipment and a jukebox by the little marble tables decorate Leopold’s.
We were advised that the best type of chocolate was the chocolate-raspberry ice cream. We only wanted the best, for test purposes, of course. As we sat at a table, a hostess – was she one of the family owners — served us water and let us know that, if the recommended ice cream wasn’t what we really wanted, then they’d be happy to give us another choice. You’re kidding?! Nobody does that! What a great place. In fact, the chocolate-raspberry ice cream was very rich and truffle-like. Really quite perfect.
The older couple at the next table selected songs on the jukebox, and, when one hit after another from the 60’s played, they sang along quietly, happy in their little world. (Beth lip-synched the songs, too.)
