The only thing better than a hot summer day is some cold ice cream to go with it.

Make your visit to Marquette County so much sweeter with these 4 must-stop ice cream shops.


Donckers is the perfect spot to stop for a sweet treat and small bite to eat. And they certainly aren’t kidding when they say they’re ‘the place where happiness happens.’ Seriously, one sip of one of their signature shakes or malts and you’ll see just what we mean. They also have an assortment of all your favorite ice cream flavors.

Jilbert Dairy

Holy Cow—if you haven’t had a sugar cone from Jilberts, you’re in for a treat! Their peanut butter Mackinac Island Fudge is the ultimate tasty-twist on an otherwise Michigan classic. But wait, before you dig in, you gotta take that obligatory ice cream pic in front of our favorite inanimate cow, Jilly.

Froyo may not technically be “ice cream” but it is definitely the next best thing. Plus it will leave you feeling a little less guilty for your cravings. With flavors like Strawberry Cheesecake, Tropical Coconut, Italian Cocoa and MANY more, you can’t go wrong. Did we mention Yoop-phoria offers over 25 toppings including various fruits, granolas, and candies—yeah, you just can’t top that.

Frosty Treats

This is one ice cream shop that we can promise is worth the wait. And we say this because there’s typically a decent line outside Frosty Treats on any given sunny day. Honestly, even the cloudy and rainy days, it’s just that good. And waiting in line is not a bad price to pay, once you see the affordability of their sizes and flavors.
