This place has been a fixture in Belvidere for years. It is along the river with plenty of seating or the opportunity to walk along the river. Old fashioned good service and good product.

So many different treats to choose from, also added bonus being right along the river and park area for the kids.

Been going here for over 53 years, and still love it. Great soft serve ice cream, located overlooking the river in Belvidere. It's a tradition.

This is a small ice cream place that is very popular over the summer. I usually enjoy a twist cone but as fall approaches they have pumpkin pie with ice cream and other fun fall flavors.

Maybe it's just me but every time I have ice cream from here I have severe stomach cramps. I don't have the problem anywhere else.

A great little seasonal ice cream shack in the middle of town. They've a great selection of ice cream treats and a nice little picnic table eating area next to the river. It doesn't take much for us to make up an excuse to drive the 11 miles there from our town.
