Bobtail vs Sugar Buzz for Ice Cream/ Candy- Lakeview

They both survived their 1st Chicago Winter and it's nice having these 2 options to choose from for ice cream on Broadway between Surf and Wellington..

Sugar Buzz is easy to miss as it's tucked between other stores just N of Surf..They have an amazing selection of candies..lots of nostalgic candy items I haven't seen since the 60"s!!!! ie; Turkish Taffy.. They don't make their own ice cream- I think it comes from a boutique ice cream maker in San Francisco...but it's incredibly rich and's a really cool store to browse...the staff are all very nice and helpful, but it's sad that I hardly ever see anyone in there...

Bobtail, 1 block north of Sugar Buzz, on the other hand, packs them in droves...has that old fashioned ice cream parlor feel, but I've never been impressed by their ice cream- they give the flavors original names ie; Daley's addiction- nice coffee selection-good service!!!

All we need now is a Carvel
