  • Had to wait until it opened at noon. When it did, we walked in and there wasn't anyone to help you. So we waited and someone came out and gave us menus. Very expensive place. So we walked out and didn...  read more »
  • Enjoyed our visit here . Old fashioned ice cream parlor with great ice cream and a large assortment of candy . 
  • Like stepping back in time! They have worked hard to have the entire interior resemble the 40's & 50's. Ice cream was great with good sized servings. Bought "penny" candy I remember from my youth, eve...  read more »
  • We stopped by for some ice cream. Amazing! It's like you stepped back into the 1900's. Everyone should take their kids there one time.
  • To the guy who gave a 1 star rating, this shop is in the old style. 1920s. Ice cream. Parlor. Not 5 star chicago restaurant. You sit down and they come and take your order. You can go up to the counter and pay right away. You dont have to wait for a bill, but they'll bring one out for you. If your ice cream was wrong, they'll make you a new one, no problem. Maybe theyd even let you keep the wrong order if you wanted it. Ive gone to this place several times. Its museum owned, staffed by teenagers. The atmosphere is wonderful, lots of old stuff, including a working vinyl jukebox from the 1950s, and the place gives people a chance to experience the way things were done in the past. Hand made phosphate sodas, which are also used in their ice cream sodas and floats, great shakes, malts, and "cows," and their sundaes are awesome. Sure. It aint a fancy restaurant. But thats not why you go there. You go there for the atmosphere, the hand crafted sodas and ice cream, and to be transported back to simpler times where people were actually decent folk. Its about 30 minutes away. Theres culvers and other small ice cream shops that are closer. But I still like going to Laubers over any of those when I got the time.
  • What a hidden gem!! Absolutely adorable little shop. So many sundae options and employees were kind and friendly and very efficient. It's a tiny place with some booths and tables inside and benches out in front. We will definitely be back!
  • I love going here with my family. The staff is nice. The place is small, but it's worth it. Amazing candy and dessert.
  • So worth the drive. The store is really small and really gives you that old town vibe. Loved it, and everything tasted great. Had a strawberry strawberry ice cream soda.
