This ice cream is by far my favorite ice cream. They have over 140 different flavors. I buy pints and quarts of it. Dan the owner, is the sweetest nicest man/owner. I come in so often they know me by name. Sammy and Kari are awesome! I call up when I cannot make it in and they put ice cream... More

Life without ice cream is not worth living. We've been regulars here since it opened. This is the real deal. Home made ice cream, flavors vary from one visit to the next. The owner is a genuine soul and the place is a neighborhood institution in downtown Rockville Centre. My favorite is the dipped cone, but sadly it is not... More

We always try to stop in for a scoop or two of this delicious icecream. All the flavors are made on site and there are so many choices. We see "kids" of all ages including families and couples. The owner is always super friendly which adds to the pleasant experience. Lines can be long but move very quickly.

Was there today, a hot summer afternoon and in the mood of ice or ice cream. So I picked ice cream at Five Pennies. I walked in and the counter girl said hello, not something that happens anymore. The small ice cream is not so small. The ice cream was premium and the taste and smell was fresh. A real... More

We love Five Pennies. The decor and atmosphere is perfect. The owner is so nice and takes an interest in making sure his customers are satisfied. Great place to visit with family and friends. Took 20 kids there for my daughter's birthday after the movies. They were so accommodating and made my daughter feel special (and it was not planned).... More

On one of the hottest days of this summer I needed to get out of the house. Where to go? I thought I'd try Five Pennies Creamery. What a good move. I had the toasted coconut and also the banana cream flavors. The staff was very nice and the ice cream well worth the trip.

Amazing ice cream, brings to mind the old term frozen custard. Thick, creamy... sooo good! They also make ice cream pies in all sorts of wonderful flavors. Stop and try some you'll be glad you did.

Out of all the times I've been on Park Ave, for some reason I never paid this creamery no mind. We always chose Red Mango or Starbucks. I'm so glad we decided to come here! The place is adorable and has a 50's ice cream parlor feel. The staff was super friendly and they even had 50's music playing, which... More
