This family-run establishment has been in business since the 1930's. When my parents married in the 60's, they lived on South Shore Drive in Chicago and Mitchell's was there. Later, when they moved to the South Suburbs to raise a family, Mitchell's arrived in Homewood! I can think of so many great celebrations we had there- after school plays and ballet recitals- it's truly an old-fashioned ice cream parlor. Best, they make it all themselves and the chocolates they sell, too! Try a fresh strawberry milkshake or plain peach ice cream when it is in season. The other reviewer is plain wrong- the place was always small and only expanded briefly. The ice cream is an EXCELLENT value for the quality ingredients. Go to Dairy Queen if you want cheap!
Pros: Fresh, Old-Fashioned, Handmade
