Beerntsen's is a historical landmark where they still make their own candy and ice cream. It is a small candy store and ice cream parlor that still has the original architecture in it. The ice cream are wonderful especially since they make all their own ice cream. They have a big variety of chocolates and handmade candies.The wait staff is... More

You cannot visit Manitowoc, WI without stopping by to see the old world charm and original setting of the BEST Old Fashioned Ice cream and candy parlor in the USA! The turtles and most candy are homemade as are the candy canes and so are many other Christmas goodies. The brickle is the best you will ever taste. But to... More

I love coming here for the simple menu that they have. Each and every time I have the hot ham and cheese and pick one of the delicious ice cream choices. They also have a really great setup of different candies that they make right there. It's an historic place in Manitowoc that I hope continues to stay around for... More

Stopped in for lunch and was brought back in time. It has the feel of an old time ice cream shop and the wooden candy cases and booths were gorgeous. The food was great too. My husband and I shared a bowl of chili, which was delish, a grilled ham and cheese sandwich, also delish, and their seasonal caramel apple... More

We go here more for ice cream than for candy. They make their own toppings such as caramel, hot fudge, marshmallow, and butterscotch. They have a menu with a few dozen different types of sundaes. They allow you to special order too. Thru have a small sandwich menu. My fav of three adult grilled cheese with tomato bisque with blue... More

Beerntsens is your classic candy, deli shop. Homemade candy and sandwiches. Now I like candy as well as the next guy but some of the stuff they have there is upwards of 20 bucks a pound. For chocolate??? Didn't buy too much obviously but what I did was very good. Bring your checkbook!!

Went there after dinner at a local restaurant for dessert. Had a sundae that was very good ( should have left the marshmallow off). This is a great place to step back in time and have a sandwich and a nice cream. They also have a great assortment of hand made chocolate. Will definitely visit again when in town.

What can an adult say about a place that glitters with all kinds of sparkling dishes. A place with mirrors that reflect all the surfaces that are dripping with treats. This place has a menu that comprises wonderful deli sandwiches as well as ice cream confections that are the stuff of dreams. They make sodas, malts, shakes, sundaes and cones.... More
