The aroma overwhelms you as soon as you step into the Northern Expressions Ice Cream Shop – homemade waffle cones and our favorite flavors; Blueberry, Vanilla, Superman, Birthday Cake, all delicious and a necessity after a day of shopping on Sheridan Street.

Keep in mind that a single scoop resembles more of a pint of Ben & Jerry’s. They offer deliciously large portions with a homemade waffle cone, traditional cone, or bowl – all are delightful and easily shared. Feel free to grab a bench outside or stroll down Sheridan. Lines move quickly and credit cards are fine.

The gift shop in front of the ice cream has a bountiful inventory of Northwoods decor – complete with outhouse accessories, dishtowels, bar accessories, everything bear and moose, Christmas ornaments and plenty of clever t-shirts.

The shop is open mid-May through the fall, depending on the weather. Look for the large green arrow, pointing to the Ice Cream Shop as you drive up the hill past Piragis.
