Great spot for ice cream in Downtown La Crosse. Close enough for a walk to or from Riverside park. Lots of variety and always a smiling face behind the counter!

Also attached to a candy store, plus lots of great ice cream flavours. Not much seating, but there is also a cafe next door.

The Pearl is legendary in La Crosse. The atmosphere alone would be enough to make that happen. It's an old fashioned ice cream parlor. Add to that homemade ice cream in a variety of flavors with homemade waffle cones and candy; no wonder a legend...More

Exceptional ice cream and ambience. Visited on Tuesday, March 13th right after an event finished across the street. Service was great except for the young lady working the register who moved us along abruptly and with little patience or friendliness.
