We were looking for the best ice cream in Chicago and a quick Google search brought us, on a rainy day, to Cone Gourmet Ice Cream, a family run ice cream parlor with an Irish theme (between the “Lick me I’m Irish and ice cream flavored in Jameson whisky - that I did not like - or Baileys, you cannot miss that). That place has its charm and is cozy, with a neighborhood feel. However, I found the flavors to be a bit too much out there and wished they offered classic flavors like hazelnut. Jodi was happy of course as they had coconut sorbet (good), but I admit that I was a bit unsure what to get. I finally settled for marshmallow delight and the Elvis, made with banana and peanut butter, topped with some homemade whipped cream that unfortunately fell quickly on the table…Overall, the ice cream was good, but I admit that it was not to the point where you absolutely have to go back there. Yes, my next trip to Chicago, I will probably check another place…
