Ice Cream Shop
$$
“I would be remiss if I didn't mention Margie's. Margie's Candies and ice cream is 2.2 miles down Milwaukee Avenue towards town (take the #56 bus or the Blue Line and exit at the Western stop). Margie's has been in the same spot since the 1930's. It is beloved. Unless you've got a reason not to go, like you're lactose intolerant, do yourself a favor and get yourself there somehow during your visit. During the day is the best time to visit because there's usually a 45-minute wait on nice days starting around 6 PM. The same staff has worked there for decades, so please be nice to them.”
