We stopped here for a wonderful ice cream "lunch" while driving back from Sioux City-- you can't miss the location on main street, they have a big fiberglass sundae in front of the door! Most of us opted to just have ice cream in a cup or a cone-- we enjoyed trying flavors we don't see in the supermarket. The space is lovely, there are plenty of tables and lots of interesting memorabilia. Our tabletop even incorporated a copy of a 1913 typewritten contract for purchasing milk at 2 cents a pound signed by Mr. Wells himself. Highly recommended!

Hadn't had a Ice Cream Soda in years. Places offer malts and shakes but not sodas. This is an old fashioned ice cream parlour with great menu options. We enjoyed our visit. We also went upstairs to look at the memorabilia.

The Blue Bunny Ice Cream Parlor is one of the hottest venues in LeMars! Savor their cool treats and souvenirs in this beautiful, historic landmark today! This fall, the Ice Cream Parlor will be undergoing renovations as noted in the LeMars Daily Sentinel and 1410 KLEM. Next summer, you can cool off high atop their roof top patio, meet "Blu" the "Blue Bunny" or learn more about Wells Enterprises manufacturing of your favorite ice cream treats! Don't wait! Cool off today at the Blue Bunny Ice Cream Parlor today and savor the flavors!

My wife is from Le Mars, and we have been fans of Blue Bunny ice cream for as long as we’ve been together (38 years). The addition of the Blue Bunny ice cream shop on Central Ave. in Le Mars is a nice treat for anyone looking to satisfy their ice cream jones on a hot summer day. We stopped in on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend for just that reason. With the temperatures reaching 104 degrees, the thought of a big scoop of creamy Blue Bunny seemed like a good idea. Apparently, about 75 people in town also thought the same thing as the shop was crowded with people of all ages. Well worth the wait in line, we ordered the cup (which costs about $2.79) and includes two huge scoops of any flavor. You can also order it with two flavors, one scoop of each, without additional cost. I had the new Salt Caramel flavor while my wife enjoyed strawberry cheesecake. The inside is very well decorated with lots of history of Blue Bunny, and upstairs has a small museum with artifacts. There is also a shop inside that carries all kinds of Blue Bunny and other assorted ice cream paraphernalia. All in all, well worth the visit (especially on a hot day). You might try enjoying your ice cream at the old style ice cream soda fountain counter for a fun experience.
