Skip Kilwin's--this place has ice cream made locally in South Haven. Girls who worked there were cute and nice. The ice cream was divine--great flavors (French Silk and Coconut chocolate almond were both great) and it's not expensive. Support them--we loved it.

We were ready for our ice cream fix and Kilwin's was too crowded, so we stumbled across Charlie's, and boy, were we glad we did. The Grasshopper (mint/chocolate) is some of the best ice cream I've ever had. I had it on a Saturday evening and went back for a second helping on Sunday afternoon. It's not to be missed!!

Charlie's (round the corner) or "The old Pink Place" whatever you call it, is a family favorite. When walking the streets of Saugatuck on a hot summer day I often see people hemming and hawing over Kilwin's or Charlie's. I see so many first timers choose Kilwin's because of the corner location, the name, the ambiance, whatever. Don't get me wrong Kilwin's has a lot going for it: fudge, candy, atmosphere. But when it comes to ice cream you will spend several dollars more for about half the ice cream at Kilwin's. I also prefer the flavor of the Sherman's ice cream served at Charlie's. Oh, Peppermint Patty please come back next year!

Some people prefer the less sugary and smaller quantity ice cream at Kilwin's, but I plead with you to walk across the street and down past the ATM to give Charlie's a try. You won't be disappointed.

We go to Saugatuck every summer...and every month that we're not there, the kids are dreaming of Charlie's. It's great ice cream in HUGE portions. Their "kids" serving is like a double or triple at a regular place -no exaggeration. The service is good and efficient. Don't be afraid of a line - it moves quickly.
