5 Best Ice Cream Shops in Chicago

Everyone knows that Chicago summers can be hot, so after you cool off on the lake with one of our Shoreline Sightseeing Chicago architectural boat tours, head into the city for some truly delicious ice cream. Thanks to how big our city is, and how we have so many unique entrepreneurs, you’ll find some delicious treats throughout the area. Take a look at the five best ice cream shops in Chicago below.

Black Dog Gelato

Ice-cream fun at the restaurant lounge

Oh gelato. One of the best desserts, and you can find some great gelato in Chicago if you visit Black Dog Gelato. With two locations, you can easily hit up one of their locations to grab a sweet treat after a long day in the city. To make it even more attractive, you can snag some unusual, but still very tasty, flavors, such as whisky bacon gelato. Now that’s one way to end the night.

Bobtail Soda Fountain

If you’re looking for the ice cream place that makes you feel like you’re back in the 1950s, then Bobtail Soda Fountain is the place to go. It’s very simple in aesthetics, but it packs so many delicious flavors and dessert options that you’ll just have to stop by. Plus, this makes a great place to split a milkshake after you and your significant other decide to go steady.

Original Rainbow Cone

In order to experience a newfound love for ice cream, visit the Original Rainbow Cone. While you’ll be presented with plenty of delicious options, you’re best bet is to choose the notorious Rainbow cone. This tasty dessert is stacked with multiple ice creams, including strawberry, chocolate, orange sherbet, palmer house, and pistachio.

George’s Ice Cream and Sweets

Take a second to think up a crazy dessert idea. Chances are that George’s Ice Cream and Sweets already has it. This place has some unique ice cream flavors, but that’s not all. Indulge yourself in a creation, like a milkshake made with Pop Rocks or a pretzel topped with horchata ice cream. And there’s plenty more where that came from, so make sure you come hungry.

Cone Gourmet Ice Cream

Take yourself back to your Irish roots and indulge in dessert from Cone Gourmet Ice Cream. Here, you can find ice cream that tastes exactly like Lucky Charms, or you can snag some ice cream that was made with real Guinness and real Irish Soda Bread. And even if you’re not Irish, feel free to pretend like you are.
