It’s nostalgia that draws people in droves to this kitschy diner/ice-cream parlor. Fancy silver trays, paper doilies and saucers filled with chocolate and caramel sauces bring back fond memories for many who’ve made this place a tradition since it opened in 1921. Equally reminiscent of the good old days are the display shelves, which are crowded with memorabilia from the Beatles, who just had to have some Margie’s ice cream after they played Comiskey.

Platters of ice cream and chocolate turtles as big as your head? Yes, please! The only problem you'll ever run into at Margie's Candies in Bucktown is deciding what totally gluttonous dessert you should order. And then maybe eating it all. This is a great place to take friends or family. Each booth has a small vintage jukebox to add to the old-time ice cream parlor feel. You can also buy chocolates and other treats to go. They make great Chicago souvenirs or gifts!
