Mootown Ice Cream & Gift Shop

Retail / merchant, Restaurant

Mootown Ice Cream & Dessert Shoppe, founded by sisters Chris & Kim Kelley, dreamed of owning their own business in Detroit, specifically Detroit Eastern Market. After many discussions and heated debates on what type of business; they determined something important was missing… ice cream so they opened the first ice cream shop ever in Eastern Market district. Mootown opened on May 13, 201!

Adamant about supporting and serving a local made ice cream; we pursed an extensive and serious search to find what we believe is the best Michigan made ice cream; Hudsonville Ice Cream! A genuine partnership began. Hudsonville has been making ice cream in Michigan since 1926.

We are committed to provide each customer with exceptional service, to create amazing ice cream desserts and to serve as model of excellence on how we treat and respect our employees, customers, partners and community.

We offer over 20 flavors of ice cream, create your own shakes, sundaes, float, malt and a full service coffee bar. We provide catering for any occasion as well, hosting ice cream socials, birthday parties and community gatherings. We close for the season on December 24th and reopen on the first Saturday in April!
