“The place to get ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We stop here every year when were in the area for big scoops of tasty ice cream. There is a pleasant, shaded deck with seating for you to eat. The kids love looking at the candy as well. They have many sizes and prices of ice cream so even a toddler can have something appropriately-sized.

“Always a favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Just can't go wrong here, there is usually plenty outdoor seating and you have a great selection of ice creams or other treats. Remember to grab a number if it is busy though, some people don't and then they wonder why they get passed up

“Great ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We visit Cathy's every time we're 'up north'. Great selection, HUGE servings, and a plus that you can drive a boat over if you're on Little St Germain. New pier to dock at.

“Yummy ice cream, generous servings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Always busy. Its a great place to give your tongue a sleigh ride, as my grandfather used to say. Many flavors to choose from, several cone options, or a cup if you don't want the extra calories. Parking is tight. Enjoy a seat on the outside patio. Patrons are always friendly and willing to give up an empty chair if you need one, just ask. It's a special treat in the NorthWoods. Enjoy!
