Leon's

3131 S. 27th, Milwaukee, WI - (414) 383-1784

A Leon's 'Super Sundae.' Jane was delighted that the sauce menu included both butterscotch and caramel (so often confused or not differentiated). This one is topped with caramel. And oh, those salty-crunchy-rich nuts!

This cone features long, elegant swirls of the delicious raspberry custard.

Looks simple … and it is. But there really is no need to complicate things at Leon's, where chocolate and vanilla are each their perfect selves. This four-dip cup could not be improved.

The glowing red neon serves as a beacon for custard lovers all over southeast Wisconsin.

Leon's is a fast-food icon on 27th Street. For most Milwaukeeans, it's always been there, always will be.
