Anyone who appreciates Americana, the 1950s, ice cream or a good deal will enjoy the Huntley Dairy Mart, where you walk up to an outdoor window to place your order.
Ice Cream Diaries
The Dairy Hut in Oswego is located on Main Street, and that’s perfect, because it seems as American as apple pie — even if that’s an odd comparison to make for an ice cream spot.
Graham’s Fine Chocolates and Ice Cream in downtown Geneva features a charming location, awesome ice cream and chocolates, and Adirondack chairs that have become famous in the Fox Valley.
Ollie’s, which has been around for more than 25 years, operates out of a modest building just off a main drag of DeKalb Avenue/Route 23 in Sycamore, just a few blocks from its boundary with DeKalb.
The Dairy Joy in Hinckley has been around since 1957, and the building does indeed look like it was pulled straight out of a 1950s Coca-Cola magazine advertisement. You can order at the walk-up window, or you can head inside and order at a window there.
