The Freeze

The Freeze is an ice cream stand in Logan Square that’s been around since 1950, and nostalgia is its strongest flavor. This classic spot is known for its soft serve, and it comes in a variety of customizable forms—cones, shakes, malts, floats, slushies, sundaes, and the namesake Freezes. You’ll definitely need toppings like Oreo bits or hot fudge since the ice cream by itself is kind of bland and can leave a strange aftertaste. But that’s OK. The main reason you’re here is to capture that summery feeling of riding your bike until the street lights come on, and The Freeze does that perfectly.
