Its the tastiest and the creamiest ice cream in the city...probably the state and country as well. More flavors than you can imagine and always something new. The Chocolate Shoppe is and has been a favorite for decades for good reason. Give yourself a treat. You deserve it.

I grew up in Madison eating Chocolate Shoppe ice cream - still the best I've ever had. We always make a point to stop with the kids when we are in town. They love it. Made with high quality ingredients.

I have thoroughly researched and tried ice creams throughout the US in search of the best ideas for launching a business. This ice cream takes the trophy. It's so incredible, not too sweet, creamy, rich, addictive, phenomenal. I ordered a double scoop of coconut-almond-chocolate and another with oreo. I never wanted to finish that ice cream and I have planned... More

Rich and full flavor but too heavy – tremendous number of unusual flavors plus the traditional safe flavors. Their dark Zanzibar Chocolate is perhaps the best chocolate ice cream I’ve had.

Great selection of specialty and standard flavors. The motto is "if you want healthy, eat carrots". This isn't low-fat or healthy in any way, but delicious in every way!

Rich, full cream, not for the timid or the dieting, with lots of flavors to choose from...what's not to like? The malts taste like a malt should, rich and ...well, malty. The ice cream is luscious (my favorite is the dark chocolate)...and needless, to say, the place is packed on summer weekend evenings.
