This isn't the only old-fashioned ice cream shop in town, but it is the best! The staff is always friendly and willing to wait while we try to decide on flavors. They have quite a variety from good ol' standbys to new combinations my daughter is always eager to try.

I loved The Sweet Shop! The ice cream was excellent! The service was great! I loved the atmosphere of the shop too! We had to stop multiple times on our visit because it was so good. We also bought chocolates that were excellent too!

Our family LOVES The Sweet Shop. My mother-in-law grew up going to The Sweet Shop as a child, my husband grew up going with his grandma, and now we continue on the tradition by taking our children, nieces, and nephews every time we're in town. Our favorites are the raspberry creams, peanut butter meltaways, milk chocolate covered caramels, and cherry... More

This is your old fashioned candy shop, where you can still find ribbon candy and angel food/divinity, a place to slow down and enjoy a treat or to send a taste of home to relatives far away.

Maybe we should not spread the word about the Sweet Shop but if we perhaps do not give directions only the really deserving travelers will find this lost in time treasure. Nothing fake here. House made confections and real Wisconsin ladies behind the display cases. This is not Godiva chocolate but what Godiva could only wish to be if someone... More

The Sweet Shop is a gem in LaCrosse WI. If you are in LaCrosse and have a little free time be sure to stop in for excellent old time ice cream and home made chocolates and candy shop. You can visit one-on-one with the owner and we got a tour of the baking and chocolate and candy making rooms. We... More

They have great ice cream to purchase and real soda. Then after we have our ice cream treats, we always buy some homemade candies or candies when I was a kid. It's so great that there are still places like this around the area. It's a lot of fun every time we go there!

There is no greater place in Wisconsin to get ice cream treats! I always get the chocolate malt, which is perfect! They also have a huge selection of homemade candies which are also delicious. Chad is the nicest guy, and always greets you with a hello and a smile!
