What is a solo vacation if not to treat oneself? So, ice cream for lunch : mint chip in a chocolate dipped cone. It was huge and fantastic. Service was efficient if not overly warm. I definitely left satisfied.

We came to Chicago for a weekend getaway and while here, stopped in for a late night dessert. I was tempted to get a hot fudge sundae and after looking at the menu I probably should have but instead I got a scoop of Chocolate...More

My family really looked forward to coming here on our trip. We've been here, San Francisco and Orlando before. This time was nothing like our other visits. We noticed the price increases so expected it would be good. They didn't get the correct ice cream...More

This place has a corner on the market when it comes to creating delicious and enticing desserts. As good as it all looked, it was just too expensive. I went with friends, but too much to take my family.

Absolutely the best way to end a nice dinner and walk on Michigan Ave. Be prepared for a line but it moves quickly. The inside seating is not extensive, however people are moving up and down allot since it is a sweet shop. Sundaes, shakes...More

We visited Ghirardelli ice cream shop on a cold night in February. There was a line but the Hot Fudge Sundae was worth the wait. The shop is very nice and clean. I just wish they had their candy displayed in a case unwrapped. Fun...More

This place is chocolate lover heaven. They greet you with free samples. The setting is that of an old style soda fountain. Its quite nice.

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
