As always our visit for ice cream cones was awesome and the ice cream tasted awesome. Our group was pleased and the place was packed. This is not a place to miss while visiting La Crosse. The candy section is also not to be missed. Our granddaughters managed to weasel out some special candy treats too!

Reminds me of an old fashion candy store. So many choices it takes awhile to browse just to see what they all have. As far as ice cream they have all sorts of hand scooped flavors available along with several kinds of cones/bowls to choose from. Super yummy!!

I tried the steamed chi tea latte and a cookies & cream fudge. The atmosphere is charming and the service provided was kind. My only issue is that we took our drinks away and after we were far from the shop, I discovered that my chai only filled half the cup! Not sure if they left room for whip or... More

A lot of great flavors of ice cream to choose from. Has a cute older look to it. It was a fun find while walking downtown streets.

The "Pearl" has top notch ice cream and a large selection of flavors. Baskin Robbins has nothing on this place! Most of all, the shop still has the ambiance of an old time ice cream parlor! Several sizes of servings are available for those who are trying to watch calories. If you have a sweet tooth and like good ice... More

My husband and I love to go there for the wonderful ice cream and variety of favors. The tables outside are comfortable. They also have homemade candies.

My wife loves ice cream. I could take it or leave it. Visiting The Pearl is her idea of extravagance. It is someplace we like to stop by for special occasions. I recommend you give it a try. Especially on a summer evening. Then you can eat your ice cream cone while strolling along Riverside Park.

Big portions and smooth ice cream. I had a chocolate malt (huge)! Everyone else had cones and all said great. 4 year old Grandson gave 2 thumbs up! We'll go back for sure.

No trip to La Crosse is complete without a visit to the Pearl. Set up like an old-fashioned ice cream establishment, the Pearl has amazing candy and ice cream. It is fun to feel a sense of nostalgia as one has dessert there and the ice cream is really good. You might expect it to be crazy expensive, but is... More

Traditional old style ice cream fountain. Had maybe 20 flavors of ice cream, nothing real interesting, generally all the ussuals. I had a hot fudge sundae, very carefully prepared (fudge in the bottom and on top), only complaint was it seemed a bit small for $4.50 - but perhaps the premium you pay in the city? Service was prompt and... More
