We have eaten ice cream around Europe, Scandinavia, and in probably 20 states, and this is the best full cream ice cream, hands down. The flavors are creative but not ridiculous or fussy. The black licorice ice cream is revelatory.

This place is a gem! Finally got to visit with the husband and we were so ecstatic about all of the dairy free ice cream options! Blue moon, Oreo, a purple chocolate chip flavor (this is the one I had but I can't remember what it was called!!) and two others. They have vegan cones and also a banana split... More

Delicious ice cream in so many varieties it was difficult to choose. I had coconut and another dip that Zanzibar chocolate. There was some seating inside as well as outdoors.

Great local little ice cream shop in Bay View. The ice cream is from Madison, so you can count on the dairy state to give you the best! My favorite flavor is Zanzibar Chocolate. It's their #1 flavor too! My 2nd favorite flavor is Fat Elvis. It's Banana ice cream with peanut butter and chunks of chocolate.

In Wisconsin it is so hard to find Ice Cream outside of a McDonalds and Wendy's, as everyone only seems to have Custard. Babe's has great Ice Cream and the staff is always upbeat. Beware though, it is closed during the dead of winter. I can't wait til it reopens.

Stopped here on a Friday night after dinner in area. Great variety of ice cream, cones and topping. They even have an Elvis option.
