This is a great place to purchase homemade gelato. There is also a nice selection of artwork by the owners. One of our favorite places!

We were in Italy 2 months ago. Never did I think I'd find an honest to goodness Italian gelato in the states. This place was fantastic! ! In fact now that I know where they are I'll be stopping frequently. They're in the back of other stores off the main street ( M22). We even tried their wine ice. Of my! I'll be spending a lot of time here. But so very delicious. Lucious! Don't miss it.

You have to try Little Bee's! First of all, the ices and sorbets are great. Second of all, the owner may be the nicest person you'll ever meet. If it's a hot day, try the lemon spritzer, which is a mixture of sparkling water and lemon ice. When I tried it I realized I had always wanted it, even though I hadn't previously known it existed! Others have described this as a gem, and they're absolutely right.

This is such an adorable hidden gem--you have to look to find it as it is hidden behind, to the back of bldg. and along a quaint, short cobblestone walk. I had the salted caramel and my daughter had the lemon--both were outstanding. I love to see the little local businesses survive and thrive--they are doing an amazing job with their product and I would highly recommend checking this gem in the Suttons Bay crown out--it is a truly tasty treat!
