“The best ice cream around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Delicious, rich ice cream, lots of choices, friendly staff. A camp favorite. The lines can get long when the local camps' parents are in town, but it's worth the wait.

“What could go wrong with ice cream?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Of course everyone should give this a 5 star? It's Ice Cream people! This is a great place, small, not fancy, great malts/blizzards, good ice cream. You can sit outside with the Mosquitos or find one of the few tables inside.
The place is packed when it's raining and you get the wet-dog smell with 50 people jamming into a place that holds 20. A surprise is the candy. Great selection. On a warm summer night you better eat all that you buy.

“Ice Cream Galore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Went looking for our traditional vacation ice cream shop and was not disappointed. Tons of flavors - three different types of ice cream - great outside sitting area. Staff was very friendly to first-timers even though they were very busy. Love frozen custard - but nothing beats hand-dipped ice cream!

“Fun little shop for the kids.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Stayed at the Cedaroma Lodge and took the pontoon to a dock near a bar sign, walked up the road a ways and found Cathy's. We stopped in with two little ones and enjoyed some ice cream. It was a neat little place with some toys and unique candies, but really, no credit or debit cards? Even in the northwoods, this is getting to be a rarity. A minimum charge would be fine like a lot of other places up there do, but you can even get apps on your phone to process these now, no good reason to make customers run over to the gas station to withdraw cash. Overall, it was a nice stop, but nothing struck me as spectacular.
