Delicious!!

The smells draw you in from a block away. It was the best toasted coconut ice cream I have ever had. I can't wait to go back and try some more flavors.

I love english toffe and usually buy this at Kilwins. There are several Kilwins across the midwest. This store had a line out the door for the ice-cream. You could smell the delicious waffle cones a block away. It was evening time and starting to get chilly but people still lined up for the ice-cream

Can't go wrong here for fudge and ice cream. Delicious. Cute, vintage-y feel on main shopping street.

Where should I start? There's a lot of great things in this restaurant! They had a lot of flavors! Over 32 flavors that will make you decide... "Which one do I want?" And the cones too. This is a recommended spot. If you stop in Saint Joseph. GO HERE!!!

The wonderful smell as you walk up State St is from Kilwins making their waffle cones. Seems like everyone has 42 house made flavor these days. Staff was very attentive and allowed us to taste a few different ice creams before making our choice.

Some of the best ice cream we've ever tasted! These little beach towns often have several ice cream and candy shops, but this one is truly exceptional. Don't let the long line deter you...it moves fast and is worth the wait!

Our party waited in line about 20-30 minutes. We got chocolate ice cream and Mackinac fudge ice cream in the waffle bowl. They make the bowls right there in the open so you can see, and you can tell that are extremely fresh. They had a lot of different varieties of ice cream, so even the choosey can find something...

We made this a "must try" based on TripAdvisor ratings and were not disappointed. On Saturday night around 930 the line was out the door and a bit down the sidewalk. However, they have an excellent system for getting people served quickly and efficiently. I am a bit "obsessed" with salted caramel ice cream and when I find it somewhere... More

We stopped in and I walked out with 2 of the biggest Caramel Apples that I have ever seen in my life...and they were so good! I also bought two of the shortbread cookies dipped in Chocolate and a Chocolate covered Oreo. Great tasting treats! The service was good but the lady helping me did stop in the middle of... More
