Mmmmm. Ice cream of a kinds. A belvidere tradition. This place will s a bit spendy but such a fun summertime treat. Love supporting our local businesses. And the ice cream really is better than the chain places.

Great ice cream. So many options! The location is in downtown Belvidere and right on the river with a small park for the kids to run around in . Real nice small town feel!

This place has been a fixture in Belvidere for years. It is along the river with plenty of seating or the opportunity to walk along the river. Old fashioned good service and good product.

Been going here for over 53 years, and still love it. Great soft serve ice cream, located overlooking the river in Belvidere. It's a tradition.

A great little seasonal ice cream shack in the middle of town. They've a great selection of ice cream treats and a nice little picnic table eating area next to the river. It doesn't take much for us to make up an excuse to drive the 11 miles there from our town.
