July is National Ice Cream Month, and here in Spearfish we have our own home grown creamery to celebrate with.
Locally owned Leone's Creamery opened downtown near the end of 2014 in the historic City Hall Building.
Leone's offers six flavors at a time, rotating through more than 100 flavors without warning, and seemingly at random.
They always keep a vegan option available (made with coconut milk!) and use local ingredients to make their flavors--such as the chocolate chip Pile o' Dirt and Blackbird Espresso coffee ice cream. They also dabble in some more adventurous flavors such as avocado and blueberry + goat cheese.
Freshly made waffle cones (gluten free) and homemade granola are a highlight of the creamery, but don't compare to the ice cream sandwiches made with soft cookies. You can also get a float or a sundae--and don't forget a pint to take home!
In the winter, Leone's hours are limited to Friday-Sunday 12-9pm.
All summer though, Leone's is slinging cream Wednesday-Monday all day long.
Whats your favorite flavor?
