They definitely do not disappoint when it comes to ice cream we ordered small cones and we're given huge amounts of ice cream that was delicious and really hit the spot

Nothing like a hot chocolate to warm up a cold day in Chicago! The nice experience starts with a treat when you enter the store. When you go to the café, upstairs, enjoy the nice view while drinking a warm beverage. I tried the salted...More

Its was spring break and I was treating my boys to some wonderful chocolate treat. We each had a waffle bowl sundae. Service was ok. The portions of ice to hot fudge wasn't the best. Could have used more at the cost of each sundae.

As soon as we stepped in, we got a free chocolate sample, which is always good :) The place is clean, the service is very nice and the ice-cream is fantastic. Not a lot of choice, but what they have taste great

Free chocolate every time you visit. The sea salt and caramel hot chocolate was delicious. Chocolate isn't cheap but it is very good quality so good for a small treat. Caramel milk chocolate bunnies are very tasty.

Whenever in downtown Chicago this is always a stop. Sundaes are $12 but shareable. A splurge when on vacation.

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
