“Pizza then Ice Cream”

Crank & Boom Ice Cream Lounge
Ranked #1 of 113 Quick Bites in Lexington
Price range: AU$4 - AU$13
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.

After our pizza at Goodfellow, we walked down the street to Crank and Boom ice cream. They are located in Lexington’s distillery district. We each picked our flavor and enjoyed. Great ice cream. Lots of nice art work on the building exterior.

Neat place in a very cool place. The ice cream is excellent. So many flavors. A scoop is a generous amount for about $4.00.

Delicious Ice Cream, Many Flavors. I went to the Distillery district on Manchester. I ordered cookies and cream and it was just superb. I was also interested in the coffee flavored with stout beer- next time.

Good ice cream in a weird area. The place was very small.
With a name like that, I thought there would be more to it. It was okay.

Great ice cream with some different flavors. Enjoyed a break on a hot afternoon while wating on our bourbon tour. Would go back when in the area.
