Friendly place to stop and have a yummy cup of ice cream. At times you may need to wait in line before being serviced. No worry it will be worth the wait.

5 stars for taste, location, service, friendly staff, and value. Yes I paid $3+ for a scoop, not too bad considering it is located in the busy street of Broadway in Lincoln Park. This place is nestled in a busy street of local restaurants and...More
