Margie's Candies Restaurant Review

: Climb into one of the jukebox booths at Margie’s and grab a spoon or a straw to enjoy one of the 10-plus, all-natural, homemade ice cream flavors the shop has been concocting since 1921. Not much has changed at Margie’s since then, from the recipes to the old-time décor, but that’s a good thing. The waffle cones are also handmade, as is the candy. Lunch options are available, too. Also located at 1813 W. Montrose Ave., 773-348-0400.
