I was in the Long Grove area trying out another restaurant. I had heard from some other patrons about a really great ice cream place that was around the corner from where we were eating.
The name of this ice cream parlor was Covered Bridge Creamery in Long Grove.
This adorable ice cream shop can easily be missed. The ice cream shop is tucked away amongst other businesses on the same strip of Old McHenry Road.
The moment that you walk into this small ice cream shop you feel like you’re somewhere special.
The worker who was there for the day that we visited was extremely friendly and looked like she enjoyed her job.
They specialize in crazy flavored ice cream with hilarious names. I tried their ice cream flavor called “Kitty Kitty Bang Bang” and my wife had a scoop of their ice cream called the “Fat Elvis”.
The ice cream was super delicious. The flavor had chocolate chunks and cheesecake with sweet raspberry ripple and oreo pieces.
My wife’s ice cream, the “Fat Elvis”, had banana and vanilla ice cream among other flavors. She really thought it was very good.
They also specialize in milkshakes and other desserts. I have seen that they also carry a variety of donuts, especially the famous apple donut of Long Grove while supplies last.
The day that we visited was extremely hot. They do have ample seating to sit outside. I chose to sit inside by their elevated area with two tables.
I will definitely be returning to try out their shakes in their other wild flavors.
I give this Long Grove gem a rating of 8 out of 10. You should definitely go check it out for yourself.
