This particular branch has ample inside seating, and a few circular picnic benches out front on a patio-like area. There's a bathroom for customers, and even when there's a line, the workers move fast and get people through in good time. A few of the ice creams taste "old" this time of year (not yet warm weather) from sitting around... More

In Illinois, it is not very often you find B&J ice cream parlor. We have to purchase it in the frozen section at the store. We were thrilled when we were hopping on Hawthorne street and found this one. The staff was very friendly and of course the ice cream w's awesome.

I LOVE how friendly they are here, allowing us to taste and taste and taste some more! The flavors are soooo incredible!! Yes, they are outstanding! I ended up getting the Greek vanilla yogurt, which was the best I have ever had!!! A fun summertime outing while strolling up and down Hawthorne! We ate this after a delicious dinner!

Ben & Jerry's may have been interested back in the 80's (of the last century), but it is a little dated, in the way that aging rock stars are dated.

Excellent icecream with a large selection of flavours. Not enough sit down tables, we had to stand and eat our icecream, preferring to stay inside because it was cold outside. Service was quick with free samples given of different flavours.

For all the euphoric flavors you can't get enough of – especially the ones you can't get in ordinary stores – nobody scoops Ben & Jerry's better than we do at our scoop shops.
