Brooklyn Bell's the Local

Brooklyn Bell’s the Local is the home of the freshest old school ice cream made in Brooklyn. It’s more than just our store, it’s also our dairy plant & bakery. This is where we bake our cakes, cookies and brownies and of course make our ice cream daily.

Come in and grab a cup of freshly brewed Stone Street coffee. Our baked goods include our own Brooklyn Bell cookies and cakes and treats as well as local favorites such as Shakoor’s Sweet Tooth sweet potato pound cake. From cup to cone to milkshake or float we are happy to scoop up our ice cream for you just a few feet away from where it was made.

We love variety so treats and flavors change daily.
