One of the best places for ice cream in the northwest suburbs. Top notch quality from a locally owned business.

My favorite is the black licorice. They have other flavors that rotate as well as several that are there all the time. Frango Mint is also a good one when they have it. This is only open seasonally.

Great summer evening ice cream treat. Very busy with families and happy children. Musical entertainment on some evenings. Parking can be difficult.

From Sunday night concerts to I Pledge Mondays and every day in between, this local ice cream shop is one of a kind. Nestled in a cozy old storefront just west of the train station, is the best ice cream ever. Cones, sundaes, cakes, bowls, unique flavors and all the regular kinds you love. This is a well deserved treat!

Very small store, but nice little park directly outside to take your ice cream out and eat it there. On weekends often have musical groups perform or show evening movies for the kids.

Cappanari's is a great local spot for award winning ice cream. The owner's are wonderful people who are totally engaged in the community making our town a great place to raise kids. You may need to wait a bit for your turn in line but half the fun is seeing the locals lining up for a tasty treat.

Friendly and welcoming and really good ice cream. Parking can be a challenge sometimes on hot summer nights, but its well worth it. There is quite a bit of parking, but all the locals know about this so it still can be tough to park.

Capannari's is a local place located in one of the towns oldest buildings. An old general store. The ice cream is excellent and worth the trip if coming from outside the area. We have been regulars since they opened and going to Capannari's has become a family tradition. The store has a frequent buyers card that rewards you after 9... More

We came during an evening and waited in line for our turn to place our order. When we left, there was still a line outside of the door. This was my first time visit. This place seems popular, with how busy it is- there isn't much room to sit around and relax. Or, the shrubbery outside was blocking my view... More

I don't have a single bad thing to say about this place except for I wish I could quit my job and eat ice cream all day . Great flavors and even when the line is out the door the line moves fast!
