We found this ice cream shop on a google search and it is delicious. They serve hard home made ice cream plus specialty treats. We have been to Phoenix before but this is the first time to this little jewel.

We went to Mary Coyle Ice Cream yesterday for dessert. We absolutely love this place. Their new place is much smaller than the other, so be prepared to wait a minute for a table if it is really busy. But they still have the same great ice cream. It is delicious! My favorite is always the chocolate ice cream soda,... More

It ain't what it used to be, and on the whole that's a good thing. The full kitchen is gone (good - who was eating dinner there?) but the table service is gone too (I liked having a waitress for my ice cream!). Also I could swear their sizes got bigger. Or maybe I'm just getting older. Anyway, the ice... More

First of all they have moved. After driving up and down 7th Ave I Googled it and we went over to 7th Street to find it next to Okra. The address is 5823 N 7th Street. The ice cream here is rich and creamy! My friend had a banana split and I had a waffle cone (very light yummy texture)... More

Yeah! It was such fun to visit Mary Coyle a few days ago. . . . wonderful experience. . . . flavors like black licorice, burgundy cherry, green chocolate chip and even boring vanilla!

My husband and I have temporarily re-located to Phoenix and are trying to visit a number of new eateries and attractions. I had read about Mary Coyle Ol' Fashion Ice Cream Parlor in a old Sunset Magazine, so we decided to give it a try. The restaurant was opened in 1951, and is decorated cutely in pink and white. They... More

Stopped in for desert. Ordered ice cream in a dish. What's called a single serving is actually 2 good-sized scoops. Was glad to see they have chocolate peanut butter. We ordered one dish with the chocolate peanut butter and maple walnut and one with chocolate peanut butter and chocolate chip. The ice cream was absolutely delicious.

I just hate to write a terrible review but we loved the old place. Ask for a 2 scoop ice cream (CONE). Gave it to me in a cup. Told the guy I wanted a cone so he just stuck one on the ice cream in a cup. Three of us went. My mother-in-law had rainbow sherbet. It was terrible.... More

Used to go here when we lived in Phoenix and the address listed is the old full size restaurant site. They have moved to a smaller spot in a strip mall just south of Bethany Home on 7th STREET - I highlight that in caps on purpose. The new spot has just ice cream so no more restaurant food and...
