The Avalanche (similar to Dairy Queen’s Blizzard) starts with a small ($2.65) and ranges all the way up to a monster-sized Avalanche ($6.50), complete with 48 oz. of soft-serve ice cream chock-full of whatever kind of candy you and the kid inside of you crave.

Having logged 61 years of operation, the Calder Brothers’ spot may be the last remaining Downriver dairy. They still make their ice cream fresh and serve it up in cones, malts and shakes in their own ice cream parlor. Whether you’re just getting a scoop to go or loading up by the gallon, their 38 flavors, ranging from reliable vanilla to cinnamony horshata, aim to please. The ice cream is reportedly fresh enough to draw the occasional out-of-state visitor.
Nice french-style pastisserie. Everything is made on the premises. There are several café-type chairs available indoors. Serving Stucci's ice cream and frozen yogurt.
Old-fashioned soda fountain serving classic sundaes, malts, real sodas and some of the best homemade chocolates around. Opened in 1921 in the city of Detroit – Detroit's oldest confectioner. Alinosi Ice Cream is proud to be featured in the book Food Finds: America's Best Local Foods and the People Who Produce Them (Harper Collins), and will also be featured on the Food Finds television show on the Food Network. Alinosi is still a family-owned business in its third generation. Sorry, the old soda fountain on East McNichols, while still intact, is not open to the public. But maybe someday....
The Chocolate Gallery Café seems an incongruous name for a breakfast and lunch place, but this little eatery was built on desserts. The chocolate is spectacular and picture-perfect.
