This is the real deal.
I assumed this was like every typical soft serve ice cream spot. Boy, was I wrong!
Dairy Lodge serves very creamy, delicious soft serve. Their toppings are generous and good quality. They take their time with service and it's worth the short wait! I regret not trying it sooner!
They have some unique items, too, but we aren't familiar with what they are-- something with fruity pebbles and the kids around us in line were raving about their Dip. My only suggestion is to take photos of these "specialties" and post on the side of the building so us newbies can get a better idea of these items while we wait in line.
Bring cash, no credit cards.
And don't complain when it takes a minute or two to get your order. This is the best around Traverse City and beyond.
