Crank & Boom Ice Cream Lounge
Ranked #1 of 113 Quick Bites in Lexington
Price range: AU$5 - AU$14
Description: Crank & Boom Craft Ice Cream started in the back of our family restaurant, Thai Orchid Cafe, with one flavor: Coconut. After making ice cream for about 6 months as a simple dessert option, we noticed some customers were coming in to just buy the ice cream….and they didn’t order any Thai food. From there, we began serving our super premium ice cream at festivals, weddings, parties and schools. The company grew organically from community support and we opened Crank & Boom Ice Cream Lounge in June 2015 in the Lexington Distillery District. Our second location at the Barn at the Summit at Fritz Farm opened in September 2017. Crank & Boom is now sold with 40+ retail partners, like Kroger and Whole Foods and has supported hundreds of local non-profit and community organizations.

My wife and I stopped in for some dessert at Crank & Boom Ice Cream Lounge last night and were blown away by how good it was! The ingredients used in the ice cream are top notch and extremely creative. My wife had a sundae with bourbon ice cream, chocolate sauce and bacon. It was divine. I had the North Lime donut sandwich, made with a glazed donut, and it was incredible. The environment adds to the awesomeness of the place, located in an old bourbon distillery building in a trendy, up-and-coming part of town. You much try this place!!
