Their website says, “Welcome to Aglamesis Brothers, makers of gourmet chocolates and premium ice creams founded in 1908.  Our nostalgic ice cream parlor, candy kitchen and ice cream plant are family-owned and operated, situated in quaint Oakley Square, centrally located in Cincinnati, Ohio. Come visit our nostalgic turn-of-the-century ice cream parlor.  Aglamesis Brothers was written up by Bon Appetit magazine as one of the last, authentic ice cream parlors remaining in the country.  Step back into a simpler, gentler time.  Nostalgia greets you at the door with antique photos of the Greek founders, Thomas and Nicholas Aglamesis.  From our antique tin ceiling, to our marble topped fountain, all aspects are authentic.”

The Aglamesis Brothers ice-cream parlor in Oakley has been in this same building since 1913. It is like stepping back in time and it is by far our favorite ice-cream parlor in Cincinnati. It smells like heaven and with just one foot in the doorway, it feels like a special day to be remembered as a special moment with the kids. The ice-cream is delicious and the chocolate chip cookies dipped in chocolate make a wonderful spoon. You would think with so much atmosphere they would charge more for their incredible sweets but their prices are not ridiculous (like a few … Cold Stone… franchise out there today).

The Oakley location is sandwiched next to the Blue Manatee Bookstore to it’s right and King Arthur’s Court Toystore to it’s left. If you plan to visit  all three locations, you’ll be sure to see lots of smiles.

Cincy Kids: APPROVE!
