Homemade ice cream. Unusual flavors. Flavors change regularly change and choice of two cones or cup. They also have sundaes and splits.

I was visiting Milwaukee and happened to do a google search for ice cream after my dinner. OMG! Their salted caramel may be the best ice cream I’ve ever had. Period. It made me sad that I live in another state. That’s how awesome it is. Go there.

Who knew a 'flight' of anything could be so much fun? A flight of ice cream was a new one for me but I'm sold. What a great way to not have to make a single flavor decision, and the flavors so are truly unique. Ice creams and sorbets with balsamic vinegar, bourbon, brandy, squash ... don't knock till you try it!
And the staff was very friendly and accommodating.

It's an ice cream store. I don't know why it is called Purple Door-- it should be called Gateway to Heaven or something like that. There are regular flavors that taste better than any other times you have had regular flavors like chocolate or vanilla. But then there are other fancy flavors like Bourbon, which you might think is kind of gross but it is like the most velvety smooth and sweet, but not cloying, Bailey's Irish Cream but more bourbony than irish-creamy. There's also salted caramel and sorbet for the lactose intolerant. They make their own waffle cones and when you walk in the sweet smell of buttery waffles envelopes you. Just go and see. Seriously, you won't be sorry.
