Modern Cone is a fairly new ice-cream shop to hit the city of St. Clair Shores, MI. This ice-cream shop is formerly known as Ashby’s Ice-Cream shop. I am so excited about the change that has come to this location. This past weekend we were actually looking for a new frozen-yogurt or ice-cream shop to visit and we stumbled upon Modern Cone on Yelp. The photos that I saw on my Yelp app totally and completely sucked me in.
For Tried It Out Tuesday this week I am sharing my Modern Cone review with you. If you are in the Detroit area (or St. Clair Shores would be even better) you need to check out Modern Cone. Their extensive menu is super duper exciting for the ice-cream enthusiast. You will find yourself coming back for more and more after your first visit! I am always looking for new and interesting foods to try out and Modern Cone was the most perfect content to share with my readers.
My First Impression
My first impression of this ice-cream shop was the super duper friendly staff! There were two people working when I came in and they were both very friendly and both were helpful. It is always reassuring to go into a new establishment and be welcomed by some joyful staff members.
Modern Cone is a decently-sized little ice-cream shop. There are several ice-cream flavors to choose from, an exciting menu board, and also an adequate amount of seating for those who wish to enjoy their ice-cream on the spot. Check out the Modern Cone menu board below.
Create Your Own Stacker
Modern Cone offers up one of these lovely items known as a Stacker. You can order a Stacker off the menu board or create your very own!
- The bottom of the Stacker gets 2 toppings & sauce
- Ice-cream layer
- 2 toppings & sauce
- More ice-cream!
- For the topping of your Stacker, you choose two toppings and a sauce
Easy peasy and endless possibilities! I look forward to trying more Stackers off their menu and then venturing into creating my own.
Regular size Stackers sell for $6.00 and the large size sells for $8.00. To me, this is a very reasonable price for a sundae that is not only delicious but memorable too!
Our Two Ice-Cream Stackers and a Modern Cone
I ended up splurging on the Cereal Killer sundae, my hubby got a I Want S’more (s’mores flavor), and my daughter Chloe got a double-scoop ice-cream cone with rainbow sherbet and cotton candy. It was really hard to narrow down my choice to just one because the Stackers that Modern Cone offers all sound enticing to me. I consider myself an ice-cream enthusiast so I can’t wait to return to Modern Cone and give more of these creative ice-cream concoctions a whirl!
I have never in my life had an ice-cream sundae with cereal on it but now seems like a good time to start! My Cereal Killer Stacker included strawberry ice-cream with a variety of different breakfast cereals (Fruity Pebbles, Trix, and Lucky Charms) and it was then topped with a white chocolate sauce. Talk about a unique ice-cream experience! Yeah yeah yeah I know this sounds like diabetes that is ready to happen in a cup BUT I do not treat myself to confections like this often so all is good! I was long overdue for a Cheat Day treat and this Cereal Killer Stacker satisified my sweet tooth!
They also have “NACHOS”!
I was really intrigued by the section of the menu where it said NACHOS! Modern Cone puts a delicious spin on nachos and they came up with dessert nachos. Yep… you heard that right! With the nachos, you get two flavors of ice-cream, your choice of 3 different toppings, and two dessert sauces.
Other Items Available On The Menu
There is a great variety of items available on the menu here at Modern Cone. Indulge in an Ice-Cream Cookie Sandwich or Cookie Ala Mode! Few things in life beat the winning combination of a warm cookie paired with some scrumptious ice-cream so I bet you a million bucks that I will be trying out both of these frozen treats!
If you don’t want to try out something wild and crazy then Modern Cone has you covered with more traditional fare like milkshakes, sundaes, cones, Italian Ice, slushies, and even a pup cup perfect for your pooch!
What is next for me at Modern Cone
I already have my mind made up (I think!) for my next visit to Modern Cone. I need that Fruity Explosion! The Fruity Explosion comes with vanilla ice-cream but I am leaning towards swapping that out for some Blue Moon or cotton-candy!
I am sharing this Modern Cone review today because I want to inspire you all to get off your butt and head on over here! This was my first ever visit here and I was absolutely blown away by the menu choices.
Ice-cream shops like this are a dream come true for me because I am not into ordinary… give me extraordinary!
This place is anything but boring. When you go to an ice-cream shop like this you are in for a real treat. The menu is so creative and it really has inspired me to want to go back for more! I want to give it all a big whirl! Lucky for us, we actually live within walking distance to Modern Cone. I am feeling like I hit the jackpot by discovering this unique and modern place!
