I literally dream about their caramel truffle ice cream!! It’s nice to have truly homemade creations that burst with top of the line ingredients. Rich cream, tasty fruits, luxurious chocolate chunks and decadent caramels. Outstanding each in their own right. So so so so good.

Amazing ice cream from a personal favorite. The only real challenge is picking a flavor. One scoop is really plenty so resist the urge to get the double scoop unless you’re really in the mood or need to try two flavors.

Great tasting ice cream. Very pleasant staff. I wanted a carry out hot fudge sundae. They put hot fudge on the side so ice cream was not completely melted when I got home. Parking was easy. I’ll be back!

You cannot get better ice cream. Enough said. The price you pay is well worth it. The shop is located in the center of Northbrook directly across from the village park. There are restaurants and shops located nearby as well as the Metra Train station...More
