Timeless favorite

I don't know how long they have been around but it has been a long time. This is a great place to get ice cream and has been recommended by many.

This is a seasonal ice cream café but with great hamburgers and French fries. They have the best soft serve ice cream in vanilla, chocolate and the favor of the day. The flavor of the day changes each day and they publish a calendar so you can plan when your favorite flavor will be made. They have indoor and patio... More

Growing up on HWY 183, this original building holds a special place in child hood memories for the whole neighborhood. Nothing beats an order of extra crispy Christy Creme fries and a side of bearnaise. Can't decide on a float or a shake? Ask for a "Freeze" - not on the menu, but they'll know.... :) soda and vanilla ice... More

ALL of the locals told us to visit Christy Crème. The raspberry shakes are to die for and the sherbet of the day was awesome. This is a small shop with only a few tables (crowded) but we ate our ice cream at the tables outside.

My family and I went here for desserts because the born-and-bred locals like it so much. The website touts sherbet, but it tasted like average soft serve ice cream. My malt wasn't very "malt-y;" I should've just ordered a milkshake. My oldest son and husband ordered raspberry flavoring for their sundae and shake. I'm not sure there was any real... More

I've been going here as long as I remember. Excellant burgers and fries also pork tenderloins. Their sherbert of the day is always good as well. I will continue to stop in every time I'm in Council Bluffs.

We ate here at about 10pm on a Friday night recently & I don't know if it was because I was so hungry but the food here tasted great. The burgers are good, not the greatest, but the fries and onion rings were fantastic. The atmosphere is maybe what I enjoyed the most and it's pretty cheap to eat here.... More

Great ice cream, friendly help. We will try a famous hamburger on our next visit. It is in a historic, funny area of CB.
