You know how your mother always told you to eat all your dinner so you could have ice cream? You’ll want to ignore that advice before you head off to this family-owned ice cream parlor. The homemade ice cream here is amazing, and the portions are huuuuge. Skip dinner completely tonight, and feed the family ice cream instead.
Visit Leatherby's Family Creamery at one of its four locations.
You'll find Leatherby's parlors in Salt Lake City, Taylorsville, Midvale, and Draper.
While many ice cream parlors offer very limited seating, Leatherby's has tons of tables. Bring all your friends, or stop in to celebrate a special family occasion here - there's plenty of room!
You can watch them make the ice cream right there in the shop! Leatherby's has been making and serving its premium ice cream for over 27 years, so they've perfected the art of this smooth, creamy confection.
The ice cream is all made just one batch at a time, which helps Leatherby's maintain their high standards of quality.
Only the best ingredients are used in the ice cream. Once a batch is finished, it's placed in a freezer at -15 degrees for at least 24 hours, then moved to another freezer at -5 degrees before it's served.
Leatherby's also creates its own homemade toppings.
There's nothing in the world like Leatherby's caramel. You could eat it with a spoon straight from the jar!
The ice cream confections here are unlike any other. Each menu item is named for a member of the Leatherby family.

Gwen's Black and White is the perfect combination of vanilla and chocolate.
This huge confection has large scoops of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, marshmallow topping, and chocolate sauce.
