Unfortunately, this ice cream maker has changed the favorite ice cream, chocolate pecan, and it is sad that this is so. No longer living in northeast Ohio, Handels was the first stop on any trip to family there, even before going to family! This will no longer be the case, I have had my last ice cream there.

Family owned and operated for years! We were thrilled when they opened a branch near us on Rt 422 in Niles. All the flavors are good, but be sure you try the chocolate pecan!

Always a good selection and reasonably priced. Their relatively late hours make them a perfect stop after mall or movie. Never had a bad experience over many years. Lots of seasonal treats from butter pecan to peach. Great end to a first date or a long term "date nite" with your mate.

Wonderful ice cream. Portions tend to be very large and pricey. Would prefer smaller/ less expensive, but one can buy by the quart and enjoy smaller portions in the comfort of home.

great ice cream, enjoyed the banana cream pie ice cream, now need to try some other flavors. Great place to go, after going to the flea market, behind Handels.

The ice cream is made fresh daily. They have a nice selection of treats, some of which change seasonally, like the strawberry short cake or the Thin Mint ice cream.

a bit pricey but open year round and great flavors to please just about everyone. Located right in Niles on state route 422 and always busy. Lots of parking but no inside seating which would be nice when weather is not.
