Step Out for Ice Cream in Elgin

3 ice cream cones in tray

Whether you’re planning a date night or you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth after dinner, sometimes there’s nothing more enjoyable than a waffle cone piled high with your favorite flavor of ice cream. If you’re new to the area and you’re not sure where to go, Biggers Chevrolet is here to help! Explore some of our favorite places to get ice cream in Elgin, below.

Fanny’s Thai Roll Ice Cream

Enjoy a new spin on this classic sweet treat at Fanny’s Thai Roll Ice Cream. Handcrafted with love, Fanny’s ice cream is spread thinly on a refrigerated table, then expertly rolled up following the unique Thai tradition that you may have seen sweeping social media recently. The ice cream rolls are placed in a cup and adorned with your favorite toppings, including marshmallows, cereal, gummies, fresh fruit, cookies, and much more!

La Michoacana

If you’ve never tried authentic Mexican-style ice cream, a trip to La Michoacana is in order! Here, you can enjoy a scoop (or two, or three) of familiar flavors like cotton candy and mint chocolate, or spring for the star of the show: Mexican-style ice cream bars. But don’t be fooled into thinking these bars are the same as you’d pick up from the grocery store freezer. You’ll have your choice of a fruity bar or a cream-based bar in flavors like mango, pineapple, coconut, or rice pudding, filled with fresh fruit slices, nuts, coffee beans, cookie or candy pieces, and more.

Caffé Mariani

Java and gelato are served up every day at Caffé Mariani, a family-owned and operated shop in West Elgin. Stop by for a scoop of fresh-made gelato in a bowl or cone, or have it blended into a refreshing shake or smoothie. Need a quick pick-me-up? Ask for an affogato, a classic Italian treat featuring one or two shots of espresso topped with your favorite flavor gelato.

Al’s Cafe & Creamery

Al’s Cafe & Creamery is regarded as a staple for ice cream in Elgin, known for their out-of-this-world malts and shakes. Flavors range from classics like chocolate and peanut butter to unique options like marshmallow and lime, and you can mix in your favorite candies, including M&Ms, Snickers, Reese’s, and more. Not feeling a malt? No problem – opt instead for a classic scoop on an old fashioned cone, or treat yourself to a loaded sundae or banana split.
