Super rad ice cream!

Kimmer's Ice Cream is one of the best spots in this town. Fun and unique flavors, as well as your regulars. Salted Carmel is the best ice cream I've ever had.

If you are looking for something different this is the place. Hand-crafted ice cream made from local ingredients. Go ahead and try a sample. The staff is always cheerful and very helpful. Their chocolate chip sandwich cookie is to die for. My husband always gets the turtle sundae and I like to try their different flavors. Today was caramel apple... More

Outstanding ice cream, extraordinarily friendly service and an excellent location, combine to make Kimmer's a true local treasure. There's simply no reason to go anywhere else for ice cream in St. Charles.

Kimmers is a cute little ice cream shop near the Fox River in Saint Charles. It has really awesome ice cream and was staffed with really nice friendly teenagers when we last visited..kids will get a kick out of the decor

We stopped in Kimmer's while visiting St Charles without having had any recommendations for it. We were immediately greeted by one of the young people behind the counter when we entered the shop. They were very friendly and made numerous suggestions and let us try free samples until we decided which ice cream we wanted. I had one scoop of... More

Go for a cone or sundae and buy a pint or quart to go... Once you get home you'll regret it if you don't have some in the freezer. "Parent Trap" is incredible - so is the "Cake Batter" ice cream. Big flavors which today is hard to find! Go ASAP!

My father took me and my four sons to Kimmer's when visiting St. Charles this summer. I was shocked to see how young Kimmer was and to really recognize some creative genius in the flavors she was concocting. Caramel with sea salt, Aztec Hot Chocolate, and Yellow Cake Batter.

My husband said, "This may be the best ice cream that I have ever had in my life." When we visited St. Charles one weekend, we actually stopped and had ice cream twice in the same day. That's how good it was the first time. Salted caramel ice cream on a salted pretzel cone. The perfect blend of sweet and... More

This is the kind of place I like to patronize if I can. It's a small, independently owned shop -- it is not part of a chain, as so many ice cream places are. The owner, Kimberly Elam, is from Batavia, so if you stop here you are definitely "dining locally." There are about a dozen (perhaps more?) flavors of... More
