Here's a quick update. I've been waiting for Cone to open on Madison for what feels like forever. Probably about how long I've been waiting for summer in Chicago! Well...today's the day. And it couldn't be better! We had the Blackhawks Parade this morning and the sun is shining bright in the sky. So I was delighted to see that Cone's walk up window was open for business following a lunchtime stroll.
The two flavors on offer today are "The Stanley", a vanilla/salted caramel swirl with a Cadbury Flake to top it off, and "Blackhawk", a vanilla/chocolate swirl with a Cadbury Flake on top. I went with the Stanley. I really can't resist salted caramel. It was flavorful and refreshing. My colleagues are on their way over as we speak to clean out the place!
The ice cream shop has their official opening next Tuesday or Wednesday, not sure which yet. At that time, I'll try top pop in and grab more photos of the adorable interior. And maybe I'll even snag one of me and the Cone mascot! Must be hot in that suit.
Cone is located on Madison between Morgan and Aberdeen. The Stanley was $3.
