I’m spoiled. It’s true! I live within 10 minutes of at least 5 different frozen custard spots. It’s no surprise really, once you know that Milwaukee’s claim to fame is that we are the custard capital of the world. Is the claim valid? I can’t say for certain, but we’re definitely not in short supply around here and I try not to take it for granted because a great frozen custard place can be hard to find when we travel around the country.
Visiting Milwaukee soon? Here’s my personal list of the best spots in town!
Leon's -This Milwaukee staple has been in business since 1942. Don't miss out while you're in town.
Big Deal Burgers and Custard- Across from State Fair park in West Allis, we always get a half gallon to take home!
Gilles - The oldest custard stand in Milwaukee, Gilles first opened in 1938!
Oscars - 3 great locations in the area, grab a coupon from their website before you go!
Kopps - multiple locations, but the vibe with the waterfall and lighting at their Greenfield restaurant is my favorite on a summer night!
Culver’s - These are popping up all over the place now, make sure to check your kid's meal bag for a free scoop!
