A stand-by for an evening ice cream run.

Great selection of specialty and standard flavors. The motto is "if you want healthy, eat carrots". This isn't low-fat or healthy in any way, but delicious in every way!

Rich, full cream, not for the timid or the dieting, with lots of flavors to choose from...what's not to like? The malts taste like a malt should, rich and ...well, malty. The ice cream is luscious (my favorite is the dark chocolate)...and needless, to say, the place is packed on summer weekend evenings.

Great place to stop to enjoy a bowl of ice cream and sit by State street to people watch. It is close to the Capitol and farmers market. Very tasty ice cream!

We are addicted to Chocolate Shoppe's Mackinaw Island Fudge. Creamy with large chunks of chocolate. There are a number of Shoppes around the city. We enjoy the one on Midvale Blvd in West Madison. Start with a good pizzza at Luigi's and walk a few feet and indulge. You won't be disappointed with any of their flavors.

OMG I am IN LOVE with the Bourbon Butter Pecan ice cream! Went to have some every chance I could get away from my hubby though I suspect when I was in meeting during the day, he was sneaking over there too! Nice, friendly staff. Ice cream was so so delicious!

I think this is the best Ice Cream in all of Madison. I know that a lot of people like other places, but their ice cream is very creamy and super delicious. We had Yippie Skippy, which is vanilla ice cream with carmel, pretzel, and other flavors. Super delicious and very creamy. we had the ice cream on a chocolate... More

This ice cream shop located on State Street has to compete with Coldstone, a gelato place, and Babcock ice cream, a product of UW. It holds up well to all. An extensive variety of tasty, interesting flavors, competitive prices, and good service makes this an ice cream shop to,return to frequently.

We stopped here for dessert after dinner. There are a lot of flavors to choose from. I had a cone and my wife had a shake, and it was $10. This seemed a bit on the high side to me, but the ice cream was great and the servers friendly!

Great flavours and lovely service. I wish they would open this place in my home town! Worth the short drive from the centre.

Had this at the brat fest and tried out there chocolate raspberry truffle. Wow, I didn't think the raspberry would be so pronounced! I loved the creamy chocolate with hits of raspberry flavor!
