Within an half an hour drive of Hidden Serenity Bed and Breakfast, are four unique ice cream and custard experiences that you will never forget.
Just 5 minutes from Hidden Serenity, on Highway 144 is Toucan Custard. They are well-known for excellent food and desserts, with the old fashioned window service from days gone by. Toucan is a local, family owned establishment that offers burgers, Friday fish fry, delicious cheese fries and a whole lot more food. Now let’s talk custard – it speaks for itself! Soooo good. Do not pass this place up!
For those willing to drive north a bit, just west the Village of Eden on County Highway B sits Kelley Country Creamery. Kelley’s was featured last summer on Good Morning America as the “Best Ice Cream in the Country”. It was the “Best Ice Cream Shop in Wisconsin” according to USA Today in 2010. Here’s why: The Kelleys have a farm with a dairy herd that is bred for their excellent ice cream producing milk. The Kelleys then make their ice cream on site and sell it in the shop. Sometimes they will combine interesting flavors into their ice cream, such as bacon. Stop by to see if they really are the best in America! Their website is: http://kelleycountrycreamery.com/.
Next, in the City of Hartford, Scoop de Ville. Scoop de Ville features the old fashion ice cream parlor atmosphere. You will need to really focus on your ice cream because there is so much to see at Scoop de Ville you may absentmindedly eat your whole treat while viewing the decorations. It may be a good idea to look around first and then order! Scoop de Ville has a website: http://scoopdevilletreats.com/
Lastly, the always-busy Hamburger Haus located in the heart of the Kettle Moraine. You can find it in Dundee, at the foot end of Long Lake. We sometimes take the 17 minute drive north just to lick an ice cream cone from there. They serve great burgers, deep fried cheese curds (of course, this is Wisconsin!) and have Cedar Crest Ice Cream products. And we all know that is THE best ice cream!
So which place will be your favorite? That research may require return trips to Hidden Serenity to determine whether Toucan, Kelley’s, Scoop de Ville or Hamburger Haus is your true favorite! Head out of the city, enjoy some local flavor, find excellent lodging in the Kettle Moraine, just north of Milwaukee at Hidden Serenity Bed and Breakfast.
