When I first walked into this store, I thought it was as big and as nice as the one in San Francisco. A pleasant woman greeted us at the door and gave us a free mini candy sample. We went upstairs for frozen yogurt, only...More

We snagged a table overlooking the river and enjoyed some delicious ice cream while people watching! The complimentary welcome chocolate square is much appreciated!

We stopped in here while walking Michigan avenue. Its right across from Watertower Place. They make great ice cream creations, and sell all kinds of Ghirardelli chocolates. They even give you a free sample when you stop in. Prices are a bit high, chocolates are...More

The hot fudge sundae was very good. The chocolate shake was very chocolaty as you might expect. The place was busy, but that can never excuse rudeness. Small with just a few tables and chairs and some more outside, but be prepared to stand outside...More

We stopped here after our bus tour and ventured inside the chocolate shop to find a cafe upstairs. Ice creams are amazing as were the shakes. Great to grab a seat by the window and watch the world go by.

This was the best hot fudge sundae I've had in years. Ice cream was very smooth and creamy and then add in Ghirdelli hot fudge. Yummo!

The new summer menu at Ghirardelli offers various (yummy!) sweet treats. Marina - Raspberry Sorbet Sundae - was delicious. At this shop/restaurant it's a first pay at the counter procedure. The only drawback was a very long line to the counter, and although we were...More

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.
