If you have any food allergies, this is a good place to stop. They have a list of food allergens in their ice creams that they will willingly share with you. I need to avoid lactose and nuts and my husband needs to avoid gluten. We were able to review their product lists to avoid our allergies. I had the... More

Lots of flavors, friendly staff, you can have as many tastes as you want while you decide what to order. Creamy ice cream, fresh, standard flavors and quirky ones. And a great sign on the wall that says “if you want low-cal, eat carrots.” This is the real thing - rich, creamy, loaded with good stuff. We went twice in... More

This not for the faint if heart. Rich ice cream loaded with pure genius combinations. New favorite is "this $#!/ just got serious" with salted Carmel ice cream, fudge ripples, and cashews. They let you sample, it's hard to choose with all the options. While it's the best stuff on earth, one-scoop is enough.

Their Mackinac Island Fudge is to die for. Selections are very good and quality high. There are a number of outlets around the area. Unfortunately, not all flavors are found at all stores. We live on the West side and must travel to East Madison for our favorite. We have asked them to carry another flavor but thus far no... More

Perfect way to end our trip. Got a tasty, coconut almond shake and my wife got a waffle cone with chocolate. Staff are so nice and patient and float from side to side making sure everyone gets served, ask for a sample if needed.

Boils down to this - "Single" cone = 2 scoops of ice cream. "Double" = 4 scoops of ice cream. Want 2 different flavors? You need to purchase 4 scoops of ice cream. 4 scoops is a long way into a Pint of ice cream, and is way too much, and expensive. The owners want you to get 4 scoops... More

We stopped off in Madison on our way to Portage, Wisconsin specifically to try the ice cream at the Chocolate Shoppe. We missed the State Street location and ended up stopping at the Fordem Avenue location. They have a variety of flavors we had never seen, including "Fat Elvis" and "Kitty Kitty Bang Bang." The portion sizes were more than... More

I was impressed by the selection-including yogurt, no sugar added and soy varieties. However, I was disappointed that they did not have the ZOREO available which was what I was craving, Nevertheless, I had the Espresso Almond Fudge which was delicious! I will definitely be back when visiting Madison!

I know that food service workers want to close on time, but the last 3 times I have visited, they cannot be bothered to stop sweeping to ring up a pint of ice cream (20 minutes to 15 minutes before closing). They also will not acknowledge customers. Make sure you allow plenty of time to wait in line while being... More
