This place is chocolate lover heaven. They greet you with free samples. The setting is that of an old style soda fountain. Its quite nice.

Its was spring break and I was treating my boys to some wonderful chocolate treat. We each had a waffle bowl sundae. Service was ok. The portions of ice to hot fudge wasn't the best. Could have used more at the cost of each sundae.

Free chocolate every time you visit. The sea salt and caramel hot chocolate was delicious. Chocolate isn't cheap but it is very good quality so good for a small treat. Caramel milk chocolate bunnies are very tasty.

We had heard so much about how good this place is and how it's a 'must stop and go there' place. Well, we had the double scoop sundae with a brownie and it was nasty. It tasted worse than a brownie out of a box....More

Whenever in downtown Chicago this is always a stop. Sundaes are $12 but shareable. A splurge when on vacation.

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
