Our Story

Family-Owned, Community Focused

Welcome to Crosstown Creamery & Diner, where we celebrate our local community as much as we celebrate our friends who are passing through.


From sipping morning coffee, taking the team for a victory ice-cream, relaxing into a family dinner after a long days work or a traditional stop-over on the way to Hocking Hills.  Crosstown Creamery & Diner is where you will be welcomed by a familiar, friendly face in a dining room we hope is as comfortable as your own.


About Johnson's Real Ice Cream

Family-owned and operated for over 67 years!

In 1950, Grandpa Johnson opened the first Johnson's location in Bexley, Ohio and he has since been an inspiration to three generations of ice-cream makers. He started Johnson’s Real Ice Cream with a commitment to quality, community, and the simple joy of a cold ice cream cone
(or pint, or sundae—there’s no wrong way to eat ice cream).


Each flavor we make is a testament to the things he loved and a reflection of his personal quirks. He was a good man with a contagious laugh who worked hard and always had fun. Thanks for keeping his legacy alive by enjoying his famous flavors!
