Ok, the shakes with the homemade whipped cream and cookies are KILLER, the candies are superb, and the atmosphere is quaint. Like many, I was introduced to the deliciousness of Gayety's by my mom at the former location on Commercial Avenue in Chicago (any one else a bit intimidated by old man Papageorge behind the register with his gigantic cigar?)....

A nice selection of God chocolate treats. They have pre packaged or you can select from the display. A nice selection

Been going to Gayety's for years at all their locations. Chocolates don't get any better than these! Yes they are pricey so it's great to buy them for special occasions. The box and ribbons they use really make it a beautiful gift. We love the muddles and the peanut butter cups the best and my husband and son in law... More

Gayety's has been around forever. It began on the East Side of Chicago when I was a baby. I'm 55 now. When my sister was pregnant with her first child she'd get cravings for their Fruit Salad Sundae. It did not sound appealing to me but once I tried it, it is my absolute favorite Sundae! The containers are huge,... More

Well, I must say that previous visits reminded me of my childhood in South Chicago and the original Gayety's watching Papa George chomp down on his cigar. But over time my visits observed some things change from that time. During one past visit we were informed that the whip cream was not ready yet. Surprising for an ice cream shop... More

this place is out of the ordinary, home made ice cream and chocolates. You don't find many of these places any more. They serve some airlines.

Gayety's has fantastic ice cream. The fat content is so high you have to actually chew the ice cream. They have chocolates that are absolutely beautiful. Great for gift giving!

Gayety's is a delight in every way...ice cream, chocolates, atmosphere and friendliness. The Muddle Sundae is so good I can hardly bring my self to order anything else when we go but the shakes and specialty flavored ice creams are outstanding as well. There is a huge selection of high quality chocolates made on the premises and if you tried... More

I grew up enjoying Gayety's in South Chicago and always said they had the best ice cream. I brought my mom and kids to the Lansing store to see if that was still true. We LOVED it! The hot fudge, whipped cream and ice cream were just as fantastic as I remembered. The shakes are huge and still come with... More
