I have eaten a lot of ice cream and I can tell you that I don't think I have had better ice cream anywhere! Great place, great employees, run by great people. I could eat their ice cream every day.

Was packed Sunday night so we went back Monday afternoon to skip the long line. Their ice cream is from a company from Wisconsin. There are actual bubbles outside for a nice touch. They had well over 10 flavors of ice cream in addition to sundae's, milkshakes, etc.

Needed some ice cream on a warm sunny day while visiting Michigan City. The ice cream was yummy, but prices were high. Staff lacked knowledge. Three kids waited on us and seemed clueless.

The Ice Cream was delicious but what really stood out was the friendly service from the two team members working Wednesday afternoon. It wasn't busy and instead of complaining about work to each other they engaged the customers in the shop! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that they don't make the ice cream on premises.

We feel so lucky that we stumbled upon Bubbles Ice Cream Parlor during our trip to Michigan City. The ice cream selection is top-notch, with one flavor looking more delicious than the next. Unfortunately, we didn't get to try the ice cream. When we walked in, we saw something more imperative on the menu - DOLE PINEAPPLE WHIP. Yes folks,... More

The ice cream is very good and the kids working there are fast and friendly. We go for a treat a couple of times a month because they are a little pricey but it is worth it. Across the street from Carlson's Drive-Up

Love the flavors of ice cream offered at Bubbles. You can also pick what kind of cone you would like: cake, sugar, waffle or waffle with chocolate. Place has a 50's type vibe. Very nice. There is also a drive through. Seating inside and out.
