Real ice cream made on premise. a wide variety of sandwiches and pizza. The chili is tasty and not overly spicy, but enough of a kick to satisfy all but the hardest core chili fans. The sandwiches are generous and service is quick, even when they are busy. For a lighter appetite, the half sandwich and soup option works well. I stumbled on this place a few years ago as it is across the street from Tannebaum christemeas and holiday shop and I make a point to have lunch there every year when we are on vacation in Door County

The ice cream there is the best I have had anywhere. There is a huge variety of ice creams. What was interesting for me is there were roughly 20 of us converging on the shoppe around 9 p.m. and I was thinking - how on earth are they going to serve us all before closing. Well they did it very well. Also, there are several places to sit and eat the ice cream.

We were on a recent 9 day camping vacation in Peninsula State Park. My husband and I came here for ice cream four times (the one in Ephraim is always too busy) - anyway, we like this place better. They make their own ice cream, the don't just buy a brand I can get at the grocery store and sell it. The last three times I had the Door County Cherry and it was absolutely delicious. My husband had Pralines and Cream the last three times and enjoyed his just as much. Sometime we'd like to have lunch here, but since we have our dog with us, we have to make her wait in the truck as brief a time as possible. I wish there were room for a little more outside seating for those of us who travel with our pets, but I guess there wouldn't be any place to make room.

During our one week stay in Door County our reunion group of 19 all managed to visit the ice cream factory many times. I think everyone tried several different flavors and thought each one was great. The young staff were always very polite and friendly. The factory is located on a major road and very easy to find. The prices were very reasonable also.

We returned several times to the factory for the excellent ice cream. They have a lot of ice cream choices , but not sorbets. And the price is high. We didn't like to eat outside because nobody cares about flowers there ,all were dying.
