“Good coffee and ice creams”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

I enjoyed a nice cup of coffee (rare in the US) on one occasion and a delicious ice cream on another. The shop is crowded but its a fun place to meet friends.

“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Guilty pleasure having a milk shake but good. Only negative is standing in line but the staff good. Quick with orders and getting the ice cream out quickly.

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

We always include a sundae from here every time we travel to Chicago. It's always crowded and a little pricy, but is soooo gooood!

“Great Chocolate, But Too Crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

The Ghirardelli store has terrific prices on chocolate, but the store is always too crowded to be enjoyable.

“Must improve...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

eventhough that nice young lady welcomes you with a smile and a piece of caramel chocolate, store is cold... And strange thing, they advertise for morning breakfast (croissant chocolatine) and not ready to serve them when the store opens at 10:00 AM.
