Liked it so much went here twice on a trip to Michigan City with wife and two little boys. We seek out shops like this and found this one to be very good and comparable to other great independent places. You’ll love it.

We went in the middle of summer and despite being pretty packed, the service was pretty speedy. The sizes are HUGE (so plan accordingly I couldn't even get through half of mine) Lots of different flavors, and even stuff for those who don't really like...More

Our second trip to Michigan City would not have been complete without a second trip to Bubbles. This independent shoppe really offers a refreshing change to the overpriced chains that seem to plague vacation destinations. Great finds like this make one feel like a customer...More

Great selection of different flavored ice cream. Indoor and outdoor seating. Outside they have a bubble machine, which the kids love running through. Hence the name Bubbles. Just off Franklin Street.
