Homer's Ice Cream , Wilmette, IL

Homer's Ice Cream Restaurant Review

: According to rumors, Al Capone used to frequent this ice cream parlor. Today, it’s families with tots that flood the whimsically decorated space. Ice cream choices --- many of which can be found gracing area restaurant menus --- abound. Favorites include everything from burgundy cherry to peppermint stick, though our money’s on the super-tasty peach and the Baileys Irish Cream. Heck, the Kona Hawaiian coffee and the rum raisin, too. A menu of other bites is available as well, but most people skip that in favor of sweets.
