Absolutely the Best

I found this neighborhood gem because of I heard they made ice cream for dogs. I was always the type who could "take or leave" ice cream, until I had my first Sea Salt and Carmel ice cream and i was sold on this place. Of course, I then found the Door County Cherry to be unbelievably awesome. Go... read more

After a nice walk around Lake Nokomis, I made my way over to the Pumphouse for a treat. The inside is pretty small, and several families had the same idea. The two girls behind the counter did their best to keep the line moving and people happy - There were lot's of smiles. I got a double on their cone($5)... More

I was in town visiting family and friends and they took us here after dinner one evening. I don't often eat ice cream other than an occasional soft serve on the hottest summer day so I was doubly shocked at how good the ice cream is here at Pumphouse Creamery. Everything is made here, even the cones and you can... More

So many tasty flavors - go for the sampler so you can try 5 tiny scoops of different kinds! Tiny inside, but usually an open bench out along Chicago that you can snag.

This is the perfect creamery! Organic, local ingredients and plenty of unique flavors as well as seasonal specials. I can truly taste the quality of the organic cream. The perfect balance of sweet to flavor to cream absolutely tops the over-sweetened Sebastan Joe's and the over-sweetened Izzy's and many others, that my delicate taste buds have rejected for years until...

I've had ice cream here before, and it's always been pretty good. No so, today. The ice cream, although on the soft side, tasted icy. Tried a couple of flavors, before choosing vanilla, and they all seem to have some deep freeze in them. The cone was terrible! It had the consistency of slightly soggy cardboard and it's taste was...

My husband and I frequently stop at Pumphouse Creamery because the offerings are consistently unique and delicious! They choose to use local, organic ingredients which impresses us, and this attention to ingredients keeps us coming back! They create several dairy-free options which are so delicious you do not miss the creamy cone. Highly recommend this neighborhood spot!

Delicious flavors of ice cream and scratch-made yummy cones. Knowing its organic makes it that much better too!

Creative flavors entertained me, while the stalwarts in our group stuck with some basics like mint chocolate chip and vanilla. About the same price as any other freestanding ice cream shop, well worth the time to find it (and it's part of a lovely complex of gift store, deli and pizza joint all on the same corner. i'm aiming to...
