Have been living in the community for a very long time and have always wanted to try this place out. Finally found it open over the summer (2016) and was extremely excited. My girlfriend and I ordered an ice cream cone and the young man behind the counter started scraping the ice cream out of the barrel with no gloves... More

We stopped in at Sara's Ice-cream in Sainte Genevieve on our drive down the Great River Road; it was recommended in the guide book we were using as we travelled south. Miss Sara made delicious ice-cream floats for us and made us feel very welcome. The store was full of memorabilia and felt like a step back in time. A... More

Quaint little shop with ice cream and soda. I think the best part was getting a cherry phosphate. The boys working were very polite. Lots of antiques to look at.

Just wish this place was opened year round!! After all, who doesn't like ice cream all year round!! I understand it is usually high school kids who work here, but you would only need to be open in the evenings and weekends I would think. I live out of state and when we come home for Christmas, my son always... More

Super nice place to get ice cream and spend a while watching the town of Ste. Genevieve go by. Super location that is close to all attractions in historic part of town. Owner and employees always very friendly. Clean and neat with the best ice cream around.

Have not seen double scoop cones since I can't remember when -- 2 ice cream "cups" on one cone stem. The ice cream had the clean taste of childhood memories of home made ice cream rather than all the thick custardy ice cream of today.

Enjoyed some delicious shakes here. Loved the antique soda fountain equipment. And the prices were extra nice!

Family of four went to Sara's Creamery after recommended by family from the area. Cute old style creamery in downtown area. Ice Cream was very very good! Paid $9.75 for four one scoop cones. Did I mention how good the ice cream was! Would definitely stop here again when in the area.

Great ice cream but short on smiles with no wasted words. Visited twice because we love ice cream. First visit we felt like we should apologize for interrupting server's day. Hardly a word spoken and that, only in response to ? about when season is busiest. Second, (apparently family member) garnered some passing comment about enjoying our visit as we... More
