Located right off the lakefront bike path and near the beach, you'll find 20 flavors of scoops to cool you down, Metropolis coffee and espresso to warm you up, and an assortment of local candy, cookies, caramel corn and other baked goods. Step inside the purple interior with cow print walls and choose from 22 flavors of Kemps ice cream, including 16 kinds of ice cream, two non-fat frozen yogurts and two italian ices -- all rotating on a regular basis. Goose Island root beer and soda is flowing, and there are other bites like deli sandwiches, a soup of the day, dessert Belgian waffles and pie by the slice.
