I’ve never been to Handel’s when there wasn’t a line. It usually moves quickly. I think if they had a menu in the parking lot where everyone was lined up then people could see their options while waiting instead of trying to read it once...More

It’s a really nice little Icecream spot. No indoor seating. But enough outdoor seats. Nice friendly staff. Good quality Icecream Seems fresh and homemade. Nice interesting selection of flavored Icecream. I recommend a visit.

But don't worry, because they usually have four windows opening up take orders, and the line moves fast. Owned by a local family, and everything is made on the premises. Your only problem will be figuring out which of the many flavor you want!

Absolutely the only place to go for homemade ice cream on the Main Line. There's always a long and interesting menu with seasonal creations. Everything is hand scooped. It's not surprising there's generally a long line at the windows.
