It's more than just "Ice Cream."

It's an experience! Our mission is to bring back the feeling of tradition and togetherness.

We are bridging the gap of old fashioned homemade goodness and creating new memories of homemade desserts. Let's go back down memory lane, but this time, bring your children too! If you like flavor, You must try one of Shawn Michelle's signature homemade ice cream flavors like vanilla, butter pecan or black walnut. We make all of our ice cream with the best ingredients to generate the best results. Our secret recipe is love. Try it for yourself!


Milk. Cream. Sugar. Flavor. Love!

We've achieved excellence through finding the perfect blend of fresh ingredients that produce old fashioned homemade ice cream that will take you back down memory lane.

At Shawn Michelle's, we choose ingredients that take you back to your grandma's recipe and on a journey to exotic flavors that will excite your taste buds. Wondering what we're talking about? Try blending Caribbean rum with raisins or honey with cinnamon graham crackers or perhaps you're in the mood for strawberries and cookies. Whatever your preference, trust that we have something to delight your entire family.


"Let's Make History Together."

Shawn Michelle's is back...although we never left. After successful stays at various retail locations in Chicago, We're back on the south side at the Historic Rosenwald Building on the corner of 47th and Wabash. The Rosenwald was home to many great American legends and now it is the home of Shawn Michelle's Homemade Ice Cream!

Recently, Mayor Rahm Emanuel toured our new site to see our progress and to highlight the value that Shawn Michelle's is bringing to the South Side and more specifically the Bronzeville community
