Hey There!

Welcome to Pretty Cool Ice Cream - the brainchild of veteran pastry chef and author of Hello My Name Is Ice Cream, Dana Cree, and Michael Ciapciak, founder of Bang Bang Pie and Biscuits. We're located in the wonderfully unique neighborhood of Logan Square on the northwest side of Chicago, just a block off the California Blue Line stop. 

 

When opening in this special community, we decided to put our own unique spin to the classic neighborhood scoop shop. At Pretty Cool Ice Cream, we'll start with hand-crafted artisan ice cream on a stick and continue to introduce a full line of frozen novelties.  


NOT JUST AN ICE CREAM SHOP

We hand craft everything at our production facility, attached to our shop, where you can watch as your favorite pops and bars are made. Our menu spans from chocolate dipped ice cream bars in classic flavors to fruit and buttermilk bars. We also have a few juice pops inspired by classic popsicle trucks. Don't worry, we'll also have delightful options for our vegan and dairy-free friends as well with plant-milk based pops. For our littlest guests, we have a smaller proportioned line of Pony Pops.

 

With the help of Tumu Studio we designed a kid-friendly space that also appeals to a more grown-up aesthetic. We've included small touches like a hand washing station and drinking fountain, changing stations in all bathrooms, as well as bleacher style seating for our little guests to climb. We want everyone in our vibrant and diverse Chicago community to find a reason to visit us, and once you meet us, we hope to give you many more reasons to come back! 

 


Bring us to your next party

The events and catering team can help organize boxes of pops for in store pick-ups, or larger quantities to be brought to an event in a freezer cart, and our kitchen can customize the flavor and colors of your bars to suit your special day.
