This ice cream shop actually has a special place in my heart. We got a multiple-tier, gorgeous ice cream wedding cake there for our special day. Highly recommend! Especially because prior to the wedding, we got to head out to their sprawling farm and creamery and try a TON of different flavors - yum!

Now it's Readers Digest that is giving props to Moomers, naming it the top ice cream shop in Michigan.

Here's their praise for Moomers:

Visitors can pull up a stool at this quaint, family-owned shop in Traverse City. Sundaes are the best ice cream order at Moomers, and popular choices include the Turtle (any ice cream flavor with hot fudge, caramel, and butter roasted salted pecans) and the Udder Delight (a brownie sundae with ice cream smothered with hot fudge, whipped cream, and a cherry). We’ve got sweet stuff covered, but do you know about the umami flavor?

Where is Moomers Ice Cream in Michigan?

Moomers is located about five miles from downtown Traverse City at 7263 N. Long Lake Rd.

The Plummer family runs Moomers Creamery on their dairy farm - so yes, you can see the cows that produce the milk for the ice cream right there at the farm!
