The Plush Horse, Palos Park, IL

The Plush Horse Restaurant Review

: Expect good ice cream with a side of nostalgia at this Palos Park parlor, where more than 30 flavors promise a fine licking and sipping experience. Specialties include banana splits, malts, shakes and sundaes, but plenty of folks go for straight-up cones in flavors like brownie batter and vibrantly hued blue moon. Those who are more waistline-conscious can consider the fruity smoothies instead. During winter, customers warm up with cups of cappuccino, hot chocolate and tea while snacking on scones. Another fun tidbit: The shop hosts ice cream socials.
