It's a Duluth Summer tradition. You know summer is here when the Malt Shoppe opens. The line is worth it! Take it down to the lakewalk and peoplewatch!

Looking out of our Fitger's Hotel room northern facing window, we noticed a steady stream of people coming and going from a small building on the lake front and perhaps an estimated 15-25 people at any given time.We decided to investigate and found out the popular attraction was a malt shop. This particular day was windy, with a cool breeze coming off Lake Superior, so cooling off with ice cream wasn't needed.

The Portland Malt Shoppe primarily sells ice cream products. Since there was a large crowd on a chilly day, we decided we needed to try three of their malts, all of which were quite delicious. We are certainly glad we noticed this crowd and look forward to another visit soon.

This place never disappoints. With endless flavor combinations, this place is a must stop for anyone visiting Duluth. The added bonus is that it's right on the Lakewalk so afterwards you can walk it off.

We almost always stop here for ice cream when we're walking the lakewalk. It's a bit expensive, but a fun treat that my daughter loves, and is always looking forward to.

The building is so unique. It's an old industrial building , but it is so tiny. There was always a crowd around. But the wait was worth it. The ice cream is so great.
