We've normally only had ice cream here but decided to ride our bikes and wanted to grab dinner. Burgers were great! Nicely toasted bun and good burger. Cheese curds were good too!

It's a favorite stop of the locals and a must visit of your in town. They have a flavor of the day that makes it easy if you can't choose.

We all wait for the day for the snow to melt and for Dairy Dream to open for the season. I can't even begin to list the possibilities. I always get a flurry which is any of 28 flavorings mixed in with your choice of fillings (I recommend piña colada flavor with Heath bar candy). Since we can't get there as often as we would like, I get a large size, bring it home to split and freeze. It is just as good the second time from the freezer. They have dipped cones, shakes, sundaes, and even sandwiches (although I have never seen anyone order anything but ice cream. There are times when the line goes around the building but it goes fast and worth the wait. Perhaps another reason to come at an off time, take it home and keep it in the freezer. This is an independent, family owned place that deserves our support.

Dairy Dream is a great place to stop for ice cream. It is so nice that they give back. Every week there is a flavor that if you purchase it, a percentage goes to some good cause. It is nice to see that. What a treat this place is. You should try the Dreamsicle. I like it in a dish but you can of course get it in a cone as well. It is half orange sherbert and half vanilla soft serve. Really good. They also have great dipped cones, shakes, etc. It is worth a stop for sure!
