To be an ice cream sensation, you have to be fresh. And that’s been Mike and Pete Mitchell’s mission since day one. Grass-fed dairy and plucked-from-the-farm ingredients have been swirled into this home-grown ice cream since the start. That’s why every small batch of Mitchell’s Ice Cream has such a devoted following at stores around the city. The cheerful shops serve locally sourced scoops like maple walnut made with syrup straight from Geauga County, and a porter chocolate chunk mixed with Great Lakes Brewing Co.’s Edmund Fitzgerald. Frozen yogurts, sorbets and smoothies just sweeten the punch. The seasonally rotating menu offers the perfect excuse to make frequent visits with the whole family for ice cream outings that are as wholesome as what’s in the treats themselves.
