Summer time got you pining for a dreamy and creamy ice cream or a fudgy sundae? Homer's Ice Cream has been churning out the best super premium ice cream — and sorbet, sherbet, frozen yogurt, and ice cream cakes and pies — since opening in 1935.
There’s a reason why you’ve heard about Homer’s in the news and from your friends … ice cream made with care using fresh and natural ingredients tastes sooo good! You can also dig in and enjoy sundaes, splits, ice cream cakes, and toppings galore. Take time to cool down this summer!
In 1935, restaurant owner Gus Poulos created his first batch of homemade ice cream that was far richer and more satisfying than any other in that era, anywhere in Chicago. Word traveled fast about the quality of Homer's Ice Cream. Its humble beginnings as a two-table ice cream parlor did not last long. Soon people from all around, up and down Chicago's North Shore came to Homer's. Gus' two sons, Steve and Dean, who grew up in Wilmette, continue to carry on their father's devotion to providing the finest quality ice creams and toppings to their customers. They still make ice creams the old-fashioned way: thick, heavy, and so very delicious.
