Yes, you can find homemade ice cream in the Western Suburbs

Honey & Mackie’s sign reads ice cream and fries. OK, I forgot about the fries! But the Frozen Hot Chocolate ice cream was terrific!

We’d heard good reports about this ice cream shop and we had a listing nearby, so we stopped in to take a taste. This newer ice cream shop filled a “much needed” gap for homemade ice cream on the west side of the metro. With the delicious assortment of ice cream flavors and French fries I predict this shop will be around for a long time!

Here’s a short sample of their “rotating” ice cream menu:

  • Salted Caramel w/ Peanuts
  • Coffee Chocolate Chunk
  • Totally Coconut
  • Cayenne Candied Bacon
  • Black Licorice
  • Peanut Butter and Jelly
