“We were looking for a place to take our grandson and daughter-in-law out for ice cream. We heard that Bubs and Gracie's Ice Cream and Cookies was really good, so we decided to try it. It turned out to be a great choice. The ice cream was delicious, and the service was excellent. I spoke to the owner and found out that the shop is family operated. We enjoyed the experience so much that we'll definitely be back!“

Flight of Flavors

“Probably my favorite ice cream in Richmond!I just love how the flavors are sometimes experimental, always exciting, thematic, and most of all they are FLAVORFUL ?I get kind of annoyed when places say an ice cream is, for example, matcha flavored or Thai tea and it barely tastes like it- here it's unmistakable like the flavor is super powerful and tastes like the real thing (that passionfruit sorbet is heavenly)Love you guys!“

“Gelati Celesti is a staple in Richmond for having one of the best ice cream! and I completely agree with that. Sadly, i found out about this place when we already moved out from Richmond. But! every time I visit Richmond this is a must stop for me to go! I think I have been to 2 or 3 of their locations and both of them deserves 5 stars! from the surrounding, employees and the top quality of ice cream they have, they are indeed a number 1 spot for ice cream. I do not even care if its cold outside, I will tell my sister to go here to get ice cream! they also have different flavors to choose from and to be honest, I do not remember what my favorite flavor is but I have tasted a few and they are all good! you will not go wrong here since they use the best of the best ingredients here and all of their locations are so cute! I think my favorite location is the one close to scotts addition but like what I said all their locations are great!“

“My little sister took me here while I was visiting her for a day. I tried the Gold Rush, and it was undoubtedly one of the best ice creams I've ever had. We bought two pints for the road.

“Really wonderful first experience!! I’ve never heard of the franchise before and the baker working was so patient while I was joyfully overwhelmed by so many amazing flavor options!! The baker was also so present for our entire interaction and was giving me all the information I was curious about.. even blessed me with the little tip on how to get the cupcakes home in perfect condition. The cupcakes are stunning, I know they’re going to be delicious but even if they weren’t, the customer service here sold me well enough to come again. I really just walked in for birthday dog treats and left with 4 cupcakes ??“

“Ray's Italian Ice & Frozen Custard is one of my favorite ice cream places here in Virginia. There are many flavors and toppings to choose from. The ice cream is tasty and the texture of the custard is buttery soft. In addition, the staff is friendly and quick. It’s important to note the seating is restricted to outside, and there aren’t many seats available. I usually eat my ice cream in the car or take it home. I definitely recommend Ray's Italian Ice & Frozen Custard as it’s delicious!“

Breakfast Burrito

“This place is unassuming, but as far as to-go breakfast is concerned, it is much better than I expected. I had probably the best breakfast burrito I have ever had anywhere (I added tomato and avocado to it), the breakfast sandwich on a bagel was pretty good, as was the thai coffee and the latte. One thing was outstanding (the burrito) and the rest were just slightly above average. The online ordering system was convenient as well.“

One Way Cream & Goodies Ice Cream Shop •
407 N 1st St, Richmond

“Great customer service and such a variety of flavor options. This ice cream shop is unlike no other as the flavor pairings are not as "common" as one may think. You can either choose ice cream scoops or you can get a milkshake, I went with a milkshake and got it infused with fruit loops and cheesecake bites which was such a yummy combination . Additionally, I took off one star for the price...it was $10 plus tax and they only offer one size for the milkshake which seems to be an equivalent to a small so hopefully they offer more sizes in the future.“

“This place is really amazing! Their piñatas are cute too. A nice selection of snacks and was excited when I saw a few chip brands I like. I recommend the rusa, taki esquites, and the mango raspado de mango! The only reason why I put 4 stars was because the 2 ladies working were completely rude to me and were talking bad about me and thought I couldn't understand them. Also my de mango was missing a few things but I came maybe 2ish hours before close so I can understand being annoyed to make a few things but come on now just be nice please.. Being rude gets you nowhere in life. Love this place though!“

“Check the hours before heading over. The shop has free 3 hr street parking outside if you get lucky. The side has a ramp into the shop. We didn't see much of the bakery today, but the ice cream satisfied two kiddies and a grown up(espresso Oreo). There is a restroom for customers only. Quite a few shops on this street didn't have restrooms. The waffle cones are the familiar brand of "Joy". The shop has many seats and tables inside. The view is Byrd Theatre and the cool shop Bygones. I could imagine myself spending a couple of hours enjoying desserts, coffee, bakery,... here.Parking: Free 3 hr street parking if you are luckyKid-friendliness: Kid's size ice creamMy kids love themWheelchair accessibility: The side of the shop has an outdoor ramp up into its side door.“

“OK Yall another Hidden Gem. My hunny brought me here for Valentines Day 2024. Well whenever reviewing a Candy spot I usually start with the fudge. NOW before I say this know that I am very picky I had the Chocolate and the Salted Carmel Fudge. Both were good, just not great and it had a funky aftertaste that I could not quite but my hand on. But I also got a Cashew Bear Claw and that was amazing let me tell you. I want to come back and give some other candies and truffles a try.“
