Blue Bunny Ice Cream Parlor and Museum

115 Central Avenue North West

The Blue Bunny Ice Cream Parlor and Museum is now home in the historical George E. Pew building on Central Avenue in downtown Le Mars.  George Pew began his business in downtown Le Mars.  George Pew began his business in this structure in 1875, just six years after the town of Le Mars was incorporated.  His general hardware and agricultural implements company was one of the first businesses in Plymouth County and the state of Iowa

The entire building has undergone a transformation that marries both the integrity of the old building with some familiar features from our former location.  We have also added a few beautiful and exciting new elements to the Blue Bunny Ice Cream Parlor & Museum to enhance your experience.  The Parlor’s marble ice cream bar, originally salvaged from the historic M&M Bakery & Café in O’Neill, Nebraska, as well as the iconic sundae sculpture are familiar cornerstones to the parlor.  Our new location now boasts a grand staircase, private room for meetings, events and parties, and a specialty gift shop where guests can find unique items straight from the Ice Cream Capital of the World.

The ice cream here is amazing! The best part, is how many choices they have. My mom is allergic to gluten and dairy, and they have options for her, which is very nice. I love how many places they have for you to sit. You can go with a lot of people, or just another person, and it's still fun. Their gift shop is a little goofy and fun to walk through.

Everything about this place is delightful! The town of Le Mars is a quaint, picturesque Midwest town and then you get inside the Blue Bunny Ice Cream store and it's like all your ice cream dreams have come true. You can sit at an old-fashioned counter or booths or regular tables. There are classic sundae options and more creative ones. You can also make your own. The staff are friendly and helpful and if you want to remember your experience even more, you can buy a t-shirt in the connected gift shop.

Great Ice Cream. Long line when we got there. We sat at a table (party of 7) and within 2 minutes a cheerful waitress brought us menus and then a couple of minutes later brought us water and took our order. Good ice cream. -. Good service.

They don't call this the Ice Cream Capitol of the World for nothing! Hot summer evening, friendly, smiling faces behind the counter, serving up free tastes! And, scooping and creating ice cream dreams! If you go, try a hot fudge sundae with hand scooped Salted Caramel Craze! THIS is how you spell summer!
