Cone Gourmet Ice Cream Chicago

Cone Gourmet Ice Cream – Specialty ice cream shop

If the name alone doesn’t entice, the topping and flavors that accompany each treat definitely will. This boutique ice cream shop offers an array of unique flavors and add-ons. From Lucky Charms cereal toppings to cookie cones, this family-run neighborhood shop has something sweet for everyone.

The ice cream shop is best known for the European-style soft serve and hand-scooped ice cream sandwiches they dish out daily. The ice cream, milkshakes and treats offered at Cone are good enough to curate an out-the-door line each day; therefore, the best time to go is during off-dessert hours, AKA anytime during the day that doesn’t follow a meal.

Along with the unique extras to accompany an ice cream cone, this shop also offers a variety of specialty ice cream flavors. For adventurers wanting a quirky concoction, I’d suggest the Cookie Monster Ice Cream (blue-dyed vanilla ice cream with cookie dough, Oreos and chips ahoy cookie bits) or the Leprechaun Tracks Ice Cream (vanilla ice cream with fudge swirl and peanut butter cups). For a simpler, savory flavor, the Pistachio Nut is the way to go.
