Fantastic!

Beerntsen's has some of the best ice cream I've ever had, all homemade. The sandwiches are good too, but we usually just get ice cream or chocolates. My favorites are the opera sundae and chocolate covered fortune cookies. The decor is great, like stepping into a time machine with every visit... read more

The meals are quite simple, but the selection of sundaes and chocolates and candy is outstanding. Sit in the wooden booth and enjoy dessert or head over to the glass cases and study the selections. Take one piece or have pounds of candy. With the Easter season here, there will be chocolate bunnies, eggs and lots of jelly beans. After... More

This place makes their own candy and sells other candy made in the USA. They make a coconut peanut brittle that is awesome tasting and sells out in a week. I send this brittle to our friends at Christmas and they just love it! They have a restaurant and sell Cedar Crest Ice Cream which is made in Manitowoc. If... More

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

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
