Whetsel Whip is the ultimate shop for creative foodies who love ice cream. Located in Madisonville, the newly opened ice cream parlor is equal parts aesthetically pleasing and so, so tasty. With gorgeous pink roses covering the shop and bakery next door, Whetsel
Whip is one-of-a-kind as far as ice cream shops in Cincinnati go.
The creative menu is a show-stopper with loaded ice cream “nachos” and a rotating flavor menu with cone upgrades like pretzel cone, chocolate chip cookie cone, waffle bowl, waffle cone and our favorite: the large bubble waffle cone. For an extra 50 cents, dip your cone in tasty flavors like chocolate, blue raspberry or birthday cake confetti. The walk-up window is open Tuesday through Sunday with outdoor seating nearby.
Signature sundaes are a highlight of the Whetsel Whip menu. Sixteen variations of the Whip’s delicious ice cream include Ryan the Cookie Monstaaa with blue ice cream, Oreo crumbles, mini chocolate chips, chocolate sauce, whipped cream and a cherry. Taylor the Party Girl keeps things a bit more classic with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, rainbow sprinkles, chopped nuts, whipped cream, cherry and a candle. For the kids, Dirt N’ Worms tops chocolate ice cream with chocolate sprinkles, gummy worms, Oreo crumbles, chocolate sauce, whipped cream and a maraschino cherry.
“The best things in life are sweet” is the motto at Whetsel Whip, which carries over to the bakery next door and nearby sister store, Cheesecakery, one block away. The bakery and ice cream shop expansion fits nicely into the revitalization of Madisonville and is a perfect place for a well-deserved treat. The bakery is full of sweets like cannolis, cheesecake brownies, macarons, pretzel rods, huge cookies, biscotti and The Cheesecakery’s famous individually-sized cheesecake “cupcakes.”
