Visitors to The Dairy State have never had it sweeter, starting on State Street at Kilwins, where you can enjoy everything from taffy to toffee, fudge and chocolate plus caramel-laden treats including apples, corns and brittles.
While you're here, you won't want to miss our finest dairy-inspired product--ice cream!--at numerous locations throughout the city.
Ella's Deli & Ice Cream Parlor is a children's wonderland complete with a circus atmosphere, flying puppets and a moving toy railroad overhead. Outside, enjoy Madison's only full-sized carousel, open seasonally to the young and the young-at-heart.
Another don't-miss destination is the Daily Scoop, home to the University of Wisconsin's own Babcock Ice Cream. You can sample this sweet treat at three different locations: Babcock Hall, Union South or UW Memorial Union, where you can enjoy your ice cream while sitting lakeside at the student Union Terrace.
Or, choose to indulge in gourmet cupcakes at Daisy Café and Cupcakery where the flavor combinations are endless. For an amazing array of specialty pies--from key lime to oreo and everything in between--visit Bluephie's, Market Street Diner 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? Pay a visit to Gail Ambrosius Chocolatier and Candinas Chocolatier where sweet treats are made fresh locally and enjoyed universally. Or, try Chocolaterian Cafe, home to Christine's Toffee which was a 2011 Emmy Awards swag bag exclusive!
