Monona Bait & Ice Cream
In a word: I will make you fishers of dairymen.
JM ate the broken waffle cone sundae.
Nichole ate the Mary Jane sundae.
The bill was about $10, or $5/person, plus tip.
JM gave Monona Bait & Ice Cream an A-; Nichole gave Monona Bait & Ice Cream an A (see our grading rubric).
We made it to Monona Bait & Ice Cream on its antepenultimate weekend of 2015. The snack bar & ice cream fountain (and bait shop) is a must-visit.
Though the grill was closed by the time we rolled up and locked up our bikes, there was still plenty of ice cream to choose from. JM got the broken waffle cone sundae - thrifty and delicious! - with caramel and chocolate in a plastic pint glass. Nichole opted for the Mary Jane sundae, a replica of the brownie dish once served at Rennebohm's.
The ice cream is from Babcock, the ambience is from days gone by, and the store feels like a Lake Loop institution. From the looks of it, the grill food is standard but also could be really good because of the personal touches. Either way, there are few better destinations in summer. It'll reel you in.
