Really good choices and some very unusual ones. If they have the cinnamon, get a taste, we loved it. Not inexpensive but worth it. If you are a chocolate fan, go for it!

This is the best homemade ice cream and worth the price. Always different flavors and great cakes to go.

Leo's is amazing!!! I am absolutely in love with their salted caramel but just about EVERY flavor I have tried, even weird flavors like cornbread, I have LOVED. The only reason for the 4 stars is because it is pricey. Trust me it is worth it for sure and I do believe you get what you pay for...but not easy... More

At of the homemade ice creams here are rich and tasty, but the salted caramel is other worldly. Do not even consider the low sugar variety. Go for the goodness (in moderation) of course.

Leo's is a locally famous ice cream shop. So many delicious flavors of homemade ice cream, it's always hard to choose! They let you sample as many flavors as you want to TRY to make it easier for you to choose. Be prepared for crowds in the summer months. Rest assured it's worth your wait!

My wife had declared that Leo's has the best chocolate ice cream cone in Carlisle. She conducted thorough research by trying a chocolate ice cream cone at every Ice Cream store in town this last summer. Leo's was a 5 out of 5 on her scale and I can attest to her expertise in the world of chocolate. Leo's also... More

Leo's is located in the former Subway Service Station that I used to visit as a child. It's been renovated to look like an ice cream shop. The ice cream is homemade on site and is delicious! There's an outdoor patio where you can enjoy your ice cream while looking at the plants that the owner has placed around. Very... More

Great l dessert shop that sticks really to one thing, locally made ice cream. Most of the time in the summer the place is packed anytime from 5:30 on, but service is usually quick and friendly (although some times the teenagers that man the helm are still developing some of their customer service skills in regards to service, but they...

Excellent quality ice cream. Most items are expensive but a small cone is about the same or less as you would pay anywhere...$2.50. Clean and plenty of space. I highly recommend.

Highly recommend Leo's if you love homemade ice cream. Great variety of flavors makes it hard to choose, so get 3 scoops! Indoor or outdoor seating is important based on the weather. Treat yourself! You'll be glad you did.
