Visitors to The Dairy State have never had it sweeter, starting with the classic Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream Co. on State Street, where you can savor more than 40 flavors of Madison-made ice cream plus malts, shakes, sundaes and cakes.
If you like to enjoy sweet treats at every meal, don't miss the Bassett Street Brunch Club, where donuts--LOTS and LOTS of donuts--are served all day long in delectable flavors such as maple bacon or creme brulee filled with custard!
Or, choose to indulge in gourmet cupcakes at Daisy Café and Cupcakery and discover endless flavor combinations. For an amazing array of specialty pies--from key lime to oreo and everything in between--visit Bluephie's, Market Street Diner (and now, Carl's Cakes!) and Hubbard Avenue Diner. All of these exceptional venues are locally owned and committed to providing the best ingredients, atmosphere and service to our visitors.
Looking for fine chocolates to give as gifts or savor on your own?
