When in La Crosse we always make a stop by the pearl. It's an old time ice cream parlor with various candies and treats. It's never a disappointment.

Loved this ice cream & coffee shop hidden in the very quaint historic district of La Crosse. Old fashioned ice cream parlor with hand dipped sundaes and fresh waffle cones, chocolates and fresh coffee. Perfect after dinner splurge! One block from the river.

We walked to the Pearl after finishing g by the river... Not only a pleasant little stroll, but an outstanding piece of nostalgia... Some of the most delicious hand dipped ice cream you will find, served up in the cutest old fashioned soda fountain atmosphere!!!!...More

We were in La Cross over Memorial Day weekend and weather was great. Each time we went there it was a long line out the door. Not sure if it was the only ice cream store but it was worth the wait.

Stopped in this afternoon to get a cold treat. I must say, this hit the spot. The ice cream was very good! I'd definitely stop by again if I'm in the area. One of the tastiest ice cream places I've ever been to.

An entertaining parlor of ice cream and candy treats that delighted my daughter's imagination. The strawberry shake still makes me smile and I know she's never had better chocolate ice cream! Worth getting off 94 to stop and indulge - the staff are friendly and...More

Summer, spring, fall, even winter, The Pearl is the place to go in La Crosse for great homemade ice cream. No one even minds the short wait (sometimes 10-12 minutes) as the line curls past the station where someone is making the handmade waffle cones,...More

Authentic soda shop vibe and the best vanilla bean ice cream anywhere! Not to mention the throwbacks behind the candy counter. I don't know where else my kids could have experience the magic of "flying saucers" and "Zotts."
