Made from scratch. Very good Ice cream and whipped cream. Chocolates are good as well. Old fashioned vibe. Don’t let prices discourage you, you will get your money’s worth and then some.

I've been going to this place since I was a little girl. We used to go to the one in South Chicago before they opened up this one. They're a little bit pricey but well worth it. Their chocolate is so delicious. Ice cream is...More
