Great little ice cream store. We both just had flavored ice cream which was really good. I love ice cream and this is some of the best. Had to wait outside. About 20 people outside in front of us.

Ice cream is made right here in the parlor, they have a large variety of candy, and the prices are more than reasonable for what you get! Heaping scoops and wonderful flavors. try the coconut caramel.

We checked this ice cream shop out on a Sunday afternoon after moving my son to the area for a 10 week rotation at the hospital and wanting to check out the area a bit. What a great little place off the river walk. There was a line to the door, but that's always a good sign that we picked... More

This is an old-fashioned ice cream parlor/soda fountain with delicious treats. We ate at a restaurant across the street and watched people walking out with cones all evening long. We had to see what all the fuss was about! Friendly staff and lots of options. Candy too!

Delicious, authentic ice cream parlor and candy shop! They had make and roll the waffle cones! Unfortunately, they were understaffed as the line was out the door when we went for ice cream one Friday night. We waited 45 minutes for 5 ice cream cones.

La Crosse is blessed with 3 ice cream/confectionary stores that MAKE their ice cream. The Pearl is one of the best. Located downtown, a block from beautiful Riverside Park and surrounded by several amazing restaurants. Great place for dessert and a coffee.
