We've been going to the Pearl for years and the atmosphere and quality make it a must stop for any special occasion, friends visiting, hot day, cold day, really any reason is a good reason to get some of the excellent ice cream available at the Pearl. They've got fresh made waffle cones, house made candy, and dozens of flavors... More

This place is the quintessential, old time ice cream shop. Great, hand dipped ice cream. It's an easy walk from downtown or Riverside Park

Their ice cream is good. Try the Sunday. The old fashion candy is fun, some of it I hadn't seen in years. If you plan to buy any, have plenty of cash.

the Pearl is part of a group of shops that includes a coffee shop, an art gallery and a La Crosse & Wisconsin souvenir shop. All are a "must see" when in La Crosse. That part of Pearl Street is something extra special in La Crosse... almost a step back in time.

What a gem of an ice cream parlor! It brings back a time where this was the place to meet and socialize over a hand dipped ice cream in a wonderful tasting waffle cone. This family friendly environment is a must for any visitors as well as those who live in LaCrosse and the surrounding area.

Cappuccino Oreo is my favorite flavor, I have to get it every time! I love the atmosphere. Take a walk down to riverside park.

Thank Jamie H
