Yummy!

I tried a turtle sundae, and it was delicious! The fact that they put hot fudge, caramel and pecans in the bowl before AND after adding their tasty vanilla ice cream makes for the best turtle sundae!

Having not been in LaCrosse for 30 years, much has changed. Sadness as there was no Bridgeman's ice cream. My husband had a Jones for ice cream and we were pleased to come across this gem. The Mississippi mud ice cream made me forget about Bridgeman's. They also had wonderful candy and chocolate and oh happiness both milk and dark... More

I recommend this please, they have many ice cream flavors, they make their one waffle cones. It's been in business for more than forty years and still giving a great service. Just a few blocks from the park.

I absolutely love this ice cream parlor! Favorite flavors are Turtle, cappuccino oreo, and peanut butter chocolate! I use any excuse to pop in for some ice cream! And the prices are great! My fiancé and I can usually get out of there for $5.

Downtown shop among old building and architecture. Wonderful icecream. It's been there forever. Nearby civic center, but hard to find parking.

Our family has always loved this place and for good reason. It's one of the few places around that still have old time charm. The ice cream is phenomenal and you get huge scoops. The candy and chocolate are a bonus. You can sit outside at the patio tables and enjoy your treats.

In November, my wife and I visited the Pearl Ice Cream Parlor with my four kids and my in-laws. They served all nine of us in less than five minutes and the ice cream was as good as it gets. They have a number of choices to pick from like: different cones, flavors, coffee, and old-school hard candy. This is... More

From the lovely scent as we entered the building, to the service we received from trying to determine which black licorice option to buy, it was a pleasant experience. We bought treats and old time candy. Will be back again!
