Not much to add beyond the title. Good ice cream, place reminds me of the old Andes Candies in Chicago. Employees did not want to be there, as evidenced by their blank disinterested looks. Half of the tables were dirty (and still dirty when we left + 1) . It s this or (crazy busy) Wilson's down in Ephraim, which... More

The ice cream here is quite delicious. I've never ordered lunch here before as there are other places I'd rather eat the main course/pizza, but when I pass here, I like to stop for a delicious shake. They offer to taste test a flavor before ordering it.

My daughters and I visited Door County Ice Cream Factory and Sandwich Shoppe on 10/22/2016. We had stopped for lunch so all 3 of us had sandwiches first. I had the Meatball, and both of my daughters had the Italian. We were all pleased with our choices. Then of course we needed some ice cream for dessert. One daughter had... More

Stopped in for my love: ice cream. Now when I walked in, lo and behold, they were in the middle of making home made waffle cones! You better believe I got one....with two scoops of different flavored ice cream!! I don't care if you're hungry or not. Stop here!!!

Love the ambience, one of only a few family places open late. Wife & I had ice cream only, so can't comment on sandwiches, but her sundae looked good, and my traditional banana split was really good. It's been a long time since I had hard ice cream in a split. Now I think $10 for one is kind of... More

There is much offered here as far as flavors and freshness. We both took a different flavor and tasted the others as well. It was a taste sensation to remember.

We have been going to the Door County Ice Cream factory for 20 years. The quality and selection of the homemade ice cream brings us back each time we are in Sister Bay. The historical old building is clean and comfortable. The vintage pictures on the walls are fun to look at and so is the old vintage delivery vehicle... More

We just had the ice cream. It's the real deal. They had a large variety of flavors to choose from. Delicious!! They also do sandwiches & pizza. I gave it four stars because we didn't know what the other food is like. Ice cream is a definite FIVE though.

Stopped here cuz it's closer to our summer home. I really like their ice cream-it's good and flavorful. My husband complains at their size to price ratio...I think it's fine I don't wanna be stuffed after eating ice cream. My kids love the chipper a cookie sandwich with ice cream in between, We have tried many and like them all...
