We visited on our first night in St. Josephs and loved the shake and apple pie sundae. It was so good that we returned the following night and Got another one. They have Delicious ice cream, fine chocolates, camel and specialty apples and numerous other desserts. There are many outdoor seating options in St. Josephs

As soon as I saw this listed as an attraction, I knew we had to go. It's a quaint ice cream shop that has a host of goodies. The smell alone wafting into the streets will make you want to go in. My whole crew had the ice cream, and it was sooooo good! I sampled at least 8 flavors,... More

We had never heard of this store before so were delighted to stumble upon it while strolling downtown on a recent Friday night. Many customers were enjoying their sweet treats as they sat outside providing plenty of free advertising for the store. Inside they served up ice cream in waffle cups and we spent several minutes watching an employee griddle... More

What can one say about their ice cream but "give me more!" My choice this time was the toasted coconut. Wow! I then put it on a fresh waffle cone. It's destiny was set. My wife and I liked it down faster than my sweet dog licking the leftovers off my plate! We also get their yummy peanut brittle. Now... More

Downtown St. Joseph! Not a franchise, which we like! We actually when the twice on different days!! My husband had a chocolate shake and I had a dish of lemon ice cream! Both were incredible! The second time my husband got a root beer float (I tried, very good) I got a marshmallow coated with Carmel and drizzled with chocolate... More

It's not a trip to St Joseph MI without a stop at Kilwins. After dinner ice cream is a must. Kilwins also has Carmel apples and fudge

The only place we were able to get dessert/ice cream at 10:00 pm after dinner in summer. This is a resort town with mostly vacationing customers. Time schedules should be more flexible at high season. Everything else closed at 10:00 and that is ridiculous especially when sundown is past 9:00. AND the ice cream was delicious; the workers delightful !
