Gayety's is a 3rd generation family-owned and operated Ice Cream Parlor and Chocolate Shoppe established in Chicago in 1920. We've been perfecting our craft for almost a hundred years - Specializing in Homemade Ice Cream, Homemade Ice Cream Toppings (our Hot Fudge is to die for), and mouth-watering Hand-dipped Chocolates.
We've been featured on Chicago's 190 North, The Hungry Hound, Food Network's Top Five Chocolate Fantasies, and voted Top Ice Cream Parlor in IL, one of Top 50 Ice Cream Parlors in the Country by USA Today. We think it's because people can see the pride we take in our chocolates and ice cream and the personalized service we provide to each and every retail, internet, corporate and wholesale customer.
Some of our customers travel great distances to come here. They let us know how much they enjoy our chocolates and ice cream; but their stories of ‘the good ole days’ in South Chicago hint that they come home to Gayety's as much for the memories as they do for our chocolates and ice cream.
We invite you to experience everything that is Gayety's. The Chocolates. The Ice Cream. The Memories.
