Serving 44 flavors of premium hand dipped ice cream. Shakes, malts, floats, sodas. Bananna splits, Sanders Hot Fudge Cream Puff, sundaes and homemade waffle cones. Alinosi Chocolates, spumoni and Italian ices. Alpine Chocolat Haus of Gaylord items. Family friendly with a '50s look.
They specialize in custard and yogurt at this Downriver roadside stand, and patrons aren’t fussy. Four custard flavors, two yogurt flavors, and most people seems to like their “twist cones,” the familiar combination soft-serve treat. You can get a medium twist for $1.91. Sorry, no sprinkles.
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.
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. And there are usually some non-chocolate options like carrot cake or lemon cheesecake. Breakfast choices include eggs and omelets, pancakes (buttermilk, chocolate chip or potato), French toast and eggs Benedict. The prices are sweet, too. Open 8 a.m.-2 p.m, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
On Monday, it’s Double Detroit Lions. Come Tuesday, it’s Butter Brickle. Wednesday is Candy Commotion. No, these aren’t secret plays in the Lions’ playbook; they’re different sundaes, flavors-of-the-day at Culver’s Frozen Custard. The Double Detroit Lions sundae is made with thick chocolate custard filled with Oreo cookie pieces and marshmallow crème. Or try the sundae with hot fudge, peanut butter sauce and Reese’s Pieces. The menu includes the burger that made them famous, the ButterBurger.
Tuesday is bagel day, 12 for $3. Plain, salt, egg, onion, garlic and Bialys. Freshly baked bagels available in all varieties.
This roadside custard stand stocks a few flavors a week, but what flavors! How about mai tai or white chocolate almond? Located between Mound and Van Dyke roads just north of M-59, open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. daily. One of our fellow employees recommends the “Custard Puff” highly.
This southwest Detroit ice cream joint serves your favorite heat-busting sweet treats, but also has savory fare, including burgers, dogs, fries and even tacos, all at affordable prices. That should explain the line that often queues up outside.
