Here in Milwaukee, we don’t typically eat ice cream, we eat frozen custard…by the carton! Frozen custard is a lot like ice cream (but way better) and contains egg yolk. Being the dairy state, we have all the ingredients we need right at our fingertips! Custard is also different from ice cream in its texture, which is made possible by the large machines that produce the sweet treat without exposing it to the air.

Milwaukee’s history with frozen custard goes way back, and now some would even deem us the frozen custard capital of the world. The southern half of Wisconsin is filled with frozen custard stands, but here in Milwaukee, we have the best of the best—including the oldest frozen custard restaurant in the state! These seven restaurants are must-experience spots for frozen custard, and you’ll want to try every single one of them.
