I love to take family here for a summer ice cream treat. You can grab a booth (if one's empty) or eat outside. Great home made waffle cones and fantastic ice cream!!

Great old fashion store with many pictures of early Door County. The ice cream is delicious and served in generous portions and varieties. The service is always friendly. I highly recommend the IceCream Factory.

The Door County Ice Cream Factory and Sandwich Shoppe makes its own super-premium ice cream on site. Patrons can watch ice cream being made during production hours. Over seventy varieties of ice cream and sorbet are made with 29 available on any given day. We also have a full line of sundaes, shakes, malts, and draft root beer floats. Enjoy your ice cream in one of our freshly made waffle cones or enjoy a sundae with our house made hot fudge. If you are hungry for a meal, we offer a full line of sub sandwiches as well as soups, salads, and homemade pizza. Enjoy your ice cream or food in our building which was constructed in 1912. Adorning the walls are vintage photographs of Sister Bay and the surrounding areas. We have an outdoor play area for kids and plenty of seating both inside and out.
