Leopold's Ice Cream Restaurant Review

: Three immigrant Greek brothers opened Leopold's in 1919, and for the next 50 years supplied Savannah with house-made ice creams and other sweets. After it closed, Stratton Leopold, the son of one of them, kept the historic gear until he could take a break from being a successful Hollywood producer at Paramount and reopen Leopold's. Walls are lined with iconic early film posters and memorabilia. The line nearly reaches to the end of the block, even on a rainy day, as locals and visitors come for their favorites. This could be anything from classics such as the intensely flavored coffee or lemon sorbet, to more unusual and always seasonal eggnog. Late songwriter and Savannah native Johnny Mercer's favorite was Tutti Frutti. All the flavors are still produced in small batches, just as in 1919. Daily made soups and sandwiches also are popular. Just save room for the shop’s main event.
