Given its reputation, I was HUGELY disappointed in the large ice-cream sundaes on offer and was even more disappointed to find that despite the high cost of purchasing one - it was tasteless (extremely ordinary). In my opinion, this establishment is wholly over-rated and hugely...More

Had delicious ice cream and sat by the window to have a few of the river. Nice relaxing time. Just wish they had sundaes that came in smaller portions. We shared and still could not eat it all.

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
