“Awesome IceCream in a cool urban restoration locale”

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.

Have been to Crank and Boom several times and it offers superb, hand-crafted premium icecream with a variety of flavors. They also a potent, locally roasted coffee that is a good compliment to a cone or cup. The servings are plentiful so if you get a double scoop, you'd better be hungry. Tastes/contrasts in the flavors are amazing!

This is a don’t miss experience in Lexington. Our son has applied/been accepted at UK - and we’re hoping he’ll go there so we can enjoy this on the regular.

My wife and I stopped on the road. After having pizza nearby we came here for ice cream. Smooth and creamy. Nice place and outside seating.

Bourbon Ball Ice Cream!

This place can't be missed. It has an amazing staff who actually enjoy serving you and their phenomenal ice cream/coffee and shakes, with or without alcohol. I have NEVER had better ice cream anywhere (and I'm from Wisconsin, home of frozen custard!).
Wow. Woah. Yum. Get there!

Ordered a flight of ice cream and got to say it's some of the best ice cream ever! My husband and I tried BlackBerry and buttermilk, honey bourbon, vanilla bean, and chocolate brownie. The awesome staff behind the counter gave a sample of strawberry balsamic to show my husband what he was missing and he ate a scoop of that too. The flight was 12 dollars and well worth it!
