5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

I ordered a chocolate chip cookie and a huge lemon ice gelato which was over the top delicious. It was not too busy when we were there service was great.

“Our favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

We visit this ice cream shop several times a year and when we travel to San Fran and San Diego we visit their shops as well.
The quality of their product is excellent, always fresh and a taste treat. Since we visit the Chicago location frequently, they know us there and custom make our sundae order perfectly. They hire friendly and patient servers who aim to please. We always tip, they deserve it! They keep this crowded space clean and attractive. Go there for fresh chopped almonds, chocolate sauce like no other and the only ice cream in the world that I will waste my calories on.

“WoW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

Hungry for ice cream?
Real old fashion soda shop style experience.
This is the place, right off Michigan Ave down by Hershey store.
Ghirardelli chocolate is awesome by itself, the ice is a added bonus.
They also have their whole line of chocolates in store.
Enjoy.

“Love Ghiradelli! Bring your appetite.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

If you are visiting Ghiradelli for an ice cream sundae, bring your appetite. This tourist attraction and lovely retro ice cream shop on Michigan Avenue will delight you with a big, tall, delicious sundae. If you aren't up for something that big, you can always share, or enjoy some delicious Ghiradelli squares and watch everyone else eat a sundae :)

“Crazy Good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

If you like chocolate (and only dead people don't), you will love this place. It has every kind they make, a quick staff to take your order and will make anything out of chocolate you can think of. Plus, they give a sample square when you walk in.... Great desert place....
