Long, hot summer days require ice cream. Take the kids out for a treat and try some of our favorite ice cream shops around town.

 

Browndog Creamery 
Farmington // 33314 Grand River Ave, Farmington
Northville // 120 E Main St, Northville
This local micro creamery is popular with kids and even more popular with parents. The ice cream parlor is also a bar so let the kids get something sweet and you can take home a pint of alcohol infused goodness – we recommend SoCo ToCo (Southern Comfort Toasted Coconut).

 

Calder’s Dairy Farm
9334 Finzel Rd, Carleton, MI 48117
It’s hard to beat farm fresh ice cream. Eat your ice cream while watching the animals on the farm, including the cows who made it possible.

 

Chocolate Bar Cafe 
20737 Mack Ave, Grosse Pointe Woods, MI 48236
Chocolate Bar Cafe is an old-fashioned soda fountain featuring Detroit made Alinosi ice cream & French superfine chocolates and candies, in addition to an array of in-house, fresh-baked cakes, cupcakes, and pastries.

 

Cool Jack’s

Have double the fun at Cool Jack’s and get two desserts in one. Pick out two cookies and ice cream flavor for a yummy ice cream sandwich.

Donut Bar + Coffee

Southfield // 29039 Southfield Road

Troy // 856 E. Big Beaver Road

Garrido’s Bistro & Pastry

19605 Mack Ave., Grosse Pointe Woods

Garrido’s over-the-top desserts are something you have to see to believe. Think milkshake topped with ice cream sandwich topped with two mini ice cream cones – the kids will be bouncing off the walls one minute and passed out the next.

 

Guernsey Ice Cream Shop
