Large portions, reasonable prices.

Everything is huge. It gets a bit hectic but if you are near you should stop and experience it. Gift store is a bit pricey.

Lemars calls itself "the Ice Cream Capitol of America." And for good reason. Blue Bunny ice cream is made here. Their parlor is where one goes to taste/eat all kinds of their favors. Shakes, malts and ice cream whether in cones or cups are available here. A definite stop here if you are in the area.

It's a fun place to take the grandkids they can pick their own flavor of ice cream any way they want it. They also will enjoy having their pictures taken at the counter upstairs.

We stopped by to visit and order some ice cream while traveling through Le Mars. It was a very cold and bitter day, but we had to have some of this ice cream. Other people seemed to have the same opinion. I am sure we would have enjoyed the ice cream more on a hot day, but it was still... More

We had wanted to pass through LeMars and stop at the Blue Bunny Ice Cream Parlor. What fun! There is a huge selection of flavors, sundaes, malts, etc. There are also really interesting displays of the history of Blue Bunny. We are glad we made a detour here and I'd recommend it!.

There are ice cream cones all over the little town which are great pieces of art. The Blue Bunny is amazing. Two stories of ice cream and history! They have... More

We went with our children and ten of our grandchildren. They all had what they wanted for less than 70.00! That is ideal. We left a tip for the servers behind the counter. They didn't get rattled with everyone (kids) yelling their order all at once.

If you are in or near Le Mars, take the time to stop at the Blue Bunny Ice Cream Parlor. There is a huge selection of all Blue Bunny ice cream, sundaes, shakes, and more. The prices are reasonable, and the atmosphere is great.

Just passing through... First of all the parlor is lovely, and fun! Lots of souvenirs and fun things to look at. There was a line for ice cream but it gave me time to decide what I wanted! Note: I got a double dip and it was HUGE!!!!!!!!!! Double dip for me and a malt for my husband was only... More
