Go! Ice Cream Alley Store in Downtown Ypsilanti, MIchigan


Ice Cream: a treat after dinner in Downtown Ypsilanti.


Ice Cream in Downtown Ypsilanti, Michigan,

at Go! Ice Cream Alley Store is special. 


Rob Hess, owner and creator, is there everyday dishing up ice cream sundaes, floats and other treats. All ice cream is made from recipes he developed.

Only fresh ingredients like cream, fruits and natural flavorings are used. Rob makes his own Spicy Ginger Ale, Fresh Blueberry Soda and Old-fashioned  Root Beer!

Top your sundae with the flavor of the day whipped cream, a variety of toppings and a cherry on top. What could be better than that!

A Root Beer float  with real vanilla ice cream brings back memories for me.

Everything they serve is made by hand, from scratch at the shop. Including waffle cones. All ingredients are all natural, organic and locally sourced whenever possible. They take pride in what they do and it shows.

Don't miss the waffle cones. Made from scratch and the best I have ever had.They are also available in a dish size.

It's a fun place to go with the whole family. You can watch the ice cream being prepared through the window. Music is always playing so you are having a good time the minute you enter.

Only  a  3 block walk from your room at the Parish House Inn . A delicious ending to your dinner at one of the downtown restaurants.

The building itself has been divided into two shops. Rob has the very back area and a larger room in the front for more seating and special events. Small tables and chairs in the alley let you relax and enjoy your treat.
Located in an alley, going from Washington Street to the parking lot on North Huron Street. Very convenient from both streets.
