This Andersonville shop sells lots of sugary things - like candy, baked goods, and, of course, ice cream. The ice cream they serve is from Chocolate Shoppe, a Wisconsin brand, and you’ll find 32 flavors that rotate regularly (including sugar-free and dairy-free options). The ice cream alone is good, but we like coming here for sundaes in particular. They make sure to put hot fudge on the inside of the cup as well on top, which means you get plenty in each bite. This place is always packed, so get your sundae and walk around all the neighborhood shops.
