Still the best and most unique ice cream you can find in Chicago. The commitment to quality is outstanding. A Southside, city-wide classic for a reason.

The Rainbow Cone is my absolute favorite. Being a Chicagoan, it's a tradition during the summer to go and get a rainbow cone. Honestly, no other rainbow ice cream comes close to this classic.

This is a Southside tradition! Spring is here when Rainbow cone opens! I remember when my mom and dad took us on those hot summer nights, tailgaitig in my dad's Ford! What a treat! I thought they were so much bigger-but I think it's because I was so much smaller! LOL Still, I take my kids and Grandkids there for a special treat!
