“Ice Cream with History!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

It's a quaint little ice cream shop. It's like stepping back in time. Love that they have kept the old feel. Great ice cream and treats! Hard to be good in this place!

“Best Ice Cream in town”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

If you're looking for an ice cream shop with, old world charm, this is your place. They have a plethora of flavors at an affordable price, along with MANY other sweet treats. Outdoor seating is popular, weather permitting. Make sure to allow time if you visit on a warm day, it's VERY popular!

“Best Ice Cream in town”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

The pearl is a old-style ice cream parlor located very central in downtown La Crosse. Their homemade ice cream is excellent, especially their cookie-dough is very good. Definitely a stop you want to make if visiting La Crosse

“Blast from the past”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

This is one of the nicest ice cream parlors I've ever been to. They have a nice variety of ice cream and chocolates too. It is also right next to the Cheddarhead store...Worth a stop...Enjoy!!!

“Ice cream is always good!”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

What is not to like about ice cream, and the parlor is clean, nostalgic and fun, if you are in the downtown area of La Crosse I'd definitely recommend stopping for an ice cream cone or a shake.
