“Great Flavors and Service”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

I really don't care for the new ice cream flavors. I am an old guy and I like the standards.... butter pecan, strawberry, coffee, dark cherry. Please no superman surprise, monster mash.... this place is normal... with great seating and wonderful help.

“A Must Visit!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Cathy's is a fun place to visit and hang out. It's always busy, especially when it's hot outside on those summer nights, so be prepared for a line. The wait isn't long, though, and they get through customers fast. Great choices at good prices. Love the small town ice cream shop!

“One scoop will fill you up.”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Nice stop in St. Germain. Frienly staff and quick service if the lot is not full. Our six orders of cones and cups with a single scoop were large enough to fill us all up. Two scoops and no one ever finished them.

Great choice of flavors and space to sit outside on a deck. This place has been around for years and its easy to see why.

“Great ice cream store in St. Germain!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

If you visit St. Germain, WI you will enjoy a visit to Cathy's Ice Cream N Candy Shoppe. Over 30 flavors of ice cream are offered in several kinds of cones or by the dish. Popular novelty candies are also offered; too many to name. Bulk candies are available including chocolates, Gummies, and sugar free items. There is charming indoor seating, and a lot of outdoor seating on a covered deck. Cathy's is open May through September, and with good reason it is very busy during the tourist season!
