If you haven’t gone to Shawn Michelle’s in Bronzeville, that needs to change immediately. This place makes fantastic ice cream, with creative flavors that are interesting without seeming like they’re trying too hard. Order the honey cinnamon graham cracker (which has a perfect balance of crackers and honey), the rich and smooth banana pudding, or the Delta, which tastes like an oddly satisfying creamy Kool-aid. If you’re a first-timer, expect to be practically force-fed samples of their signature flavors by the friendliest people who seem like the only thing they care about in this world is for you to like their ice cream - which you will.
