Not much to add beyond the title. Good ice cream, place reminds me of the old Andes Candies in Chicago. Employees did not want to be there, as evidenced by their blank disinterested looks. Half of the tables were dirty (and still dirty when we...More

The ice cream here is quite delicious. I've never ordered lunch here before as there are other places I'd rather eat the main course/pizza, but when I pass here, I like to stop for a delicious shake. They offer to taste test a flavor before...More

There is much offered here as far as flavors and freshness. We both took a different flavor and tasted the others as well. It was a taste sensation to remember.

The Door County Ice Cream Factory and Sandwich Shoppe makes its own super-premium ice cream on site. Patrons can watch ice cream being made during production hours. Over seventy varieties of ice cream and sorbet are made with 29 available on any given day. We also have a full line of sundaes, shakes, malts, and draft root beer floats. Enjoy your ice cream in one of our freshly made waffle cones or enjoy a sundae with our house made hot fudge.

If you are hungry for a meal, we offer a full line of sub sandwiches as well as soups, salads, and homemade pizza. Enjoy your ice cream or food in our building which was constructed in 1912. Adorning the walls are vintage photographs of Sister Bay and the surrounding areas. We have an outdoor play area for kids and plenty of seating both inside and out.
