The soft serve is a staple and tops off a stop at mabes:). They also have good fast food (tacos, foot long hot dogs) and real root beer! My favorite is the chocolate with crunch cote.

Basic kid-friendly menu and all the ice cream varieties, and concoctions you will ever need. Inexpensive treat stop while visiting Decorah. Ample parking, although there is limited seating at the picnic table out front. Good for a quick bite to eat too.

This is a great little ice cream shop in Decorah, Iowa, that if you are not careful, you may miss. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled and stop by for some amazingly creamy soft serve ice cream. They have great, energetic, nice young people working there. Lot's of choices and they even serve quite a selection of food. We were there for the ice cream and were not disappointed! One warning...no credit or debit cards are accepted so be sure to have your cash ready!

Ok, after you stuff yourself with a Mabe's pizza or two you must make your way to the Whippy Dip! It's tradition for us no matter how full because as my dad says, "you gotta cool your gut!" Whippy Dip is soft serve at it's finest! Staff is great and the treats are tasty!

I have eaten here a lot of times and it is always good, though I am not sure you can mess up ice cream. It can be busy when it opens and Luther is still in school so try and avoid going in May. They serve regular food too but since there isn't much room for sitting trying to eat a hot dog or something while holding a drink can be tough.
