We just moved to Council Bluffs and are exploring and venturing around our new burg. This place is just down the road from our home, so it was a natural must that we see what all the hubbub was about. My daughter and I snuck over when she had a sick day and.....YUMMO! It reminded me of a southern drive... More

Christy Creme is small and nothing fancy, but every Febuary, when I hear they are opening back up, I get excited! They have been around for as long as I can remember, and is always a special treat. They have great ice cream and the best fries! For me, it's some of my fondest memories. Taking the kids there for... More

And many other items on... More

This is a seasonal ice cream café but with great hamburgers and French fries. They have the best soft serve ice cream in vanilla, chocolate and the favor of the day. The flavor of the day changes each day and they publish a calendar so you can plan when your favorite flavor will be made. They have indoor and patio... More

Growing up on HWY 183, this original building holds a special place in child hood memories for the whole neighborhood. Nothing beats an order of extra crispy Christy Creme fries and a side of bearnaise. Can't decide on a float or a shake? Ask for a "Freeze" - not on the menu, but they'll know.... :) soda and vanilla ice... More

ALL of the locals told us to visit Christy Crème. The raspberry shakes are to die for and the sherbet of the day was awesome. This is a small shop with only a few tables (crowded) but we ate our ice cream at the tables outside.
