There’s nothing like delicious ice cream to cool you off on a hot summer day. And here in Greenfield, we have no shortage of ice cream shop options to choose from. From local homemade treats to large chains (with full meals too!) let’s round up the best ice cream in Hancock County!


Do you love custard even more than ice cream? According to Culver’s, one of our Midwest staples, “custard is made from a combination of milk, cream and pasteurized egg yolks, and in order to be true custard, it has to be at least 1.4 percent egg.” At our local Culver’s, you can pick up their flavor of the day or any variety of yummy custards (plus a delicious burger) in their drive-through!

Dave’s Express Care Carwash & Grill

The Express Grill at Dave’s Carwash in Greenfield is known not just for their quality car washes, but also for their homemade food and hand-dipped ice cream. Next time you’re craving some ice cream (especially while you get your car cleaned) try out the hand-dipped ice cream in a dish or a hand-dipped milkshake from Dave’s!

Dairy Queen

We’ve all been to the Dairy Queen Grill & Chill to grab a tasty Blizzard, and enjoyed the fun it is to see it served upside down! Their summer flavors are always a treat to try out, and they recently even brought back their Misties to the menu to really cool off from the summer heat. Have you got an August birthday to celebrate, or maybe you want to have a special dessert for the first day of school? Pick up a Dairy Queen ice cream cake with their signature fudge and crunch center!

Greenfield Chocolates

J. Evelyn Confections may be known for their handcrafted chocolates, but during the summer you can also pick up special ice cream sandwiches with homemade ice cream on Saturdays while supplies last, with new flavors offered every week. Some of their most recent ice cream sandwich flavors have included peanut butter ice cream on a brownie, lemon on a ginger snap and lime on a coconut blondie. These gourmet treats will be hard to find elsewhere!

Hitherto Coffee & Gaming Parlour

There’s more than just coffee and games at Hitherto Coffee & Gaming Parlour. Try out their high-quality soft serve gelato in Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla, Belgian Chocolate or get them swirled! And while you play a game from their library together with the family, your kids can enjoy a frappe in unique flavors like Cotton Candy, Orange Dreamsicle, Frozen Hot Chocolate and more. 

Libby’s Ice Cream

A Greenfield staple, Libby’s Ice Cream, which also has a second location in Fortville, is known for its large menu of ice cream flavors that rotate daily. You can also try out their one-of-a-kind milkshake recipes, twisters (club soda with sorbet), real fruit smoothies, ice cream sandwiches and more!

The Mug

The Mug has a delicious “farm-to-curb” menu that includes tasty ice cream served drive-in style right to your car window. Originally called The Frosty Mug, this restaurant served residents of Greenfield for over 50 years before it closed its doors in 2013 and was reopened the next year by Chris Baggott. Order from your car, get a full meal inside or grab a scoop from the ice cream window today!
