Graeter's Restaurant Review

: Graeter's is available in plenty of Cincinnati's neighborhoods, and you can even get it from the frozen-food aisle at the grocery. But there's something about Hyde Park Square and its promenade that makes the ice cream here taste even better. Enjoy your sweet treat outside on a bench by the fountain and take in the sights and sounds of summer. Graeter's uses a French pot process to make its creamy concoctions. Black raspberry chip is a favorite, with big chunks of chocolate throughout. The blueberry pie flavor is irresistible, and the waffle cones are a must-try. You can even take some home in a dry-ice travel pack.
