Tates is a small, family owned ice creamery in the heart of downtown Wheaton. On a typical summer evening, there will be a line out the door because of its popularity with the locals. The ice cream is homemade and flavor offerings are large. The portions that they dish out are also very large. My favorite is the Pistachio Almond on a waffle cone. There are also shakes, malts, and other ice cream notions that you can purchase as well. The store itself is small so most people will take their ice cream to go and walk around town. Others prefer to sit right outside the store front and enjoy their treats there.
