Sweet Pea's carries premium, Wisconsin-made Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream. Don't miss the Zanzibar dark chocolate, made from three kinds of cocoa, or the Fat Elvis, combining banana, peanut butter and chocolate flavors. There are three wooden booths, and outdoor tables.

Gained some weight, found it hard to justify going here when Love's is equidistant from my house, comparably priced, and at least seems healthier. A couple of weeks ago, though, my parents got some groupons for the... More
