ROCKTON, Ill. (WIFR) - One of the Stateline’s most-coveted ice cream spots is now open for a milestone 40th year.

Dairyhäus in downtown Rockton opened Saturday, April 9 with waves of people coming all day to get their favorite treats in person for the time since early fall.

After having a successful curbside service from the winter, owner Brent Murray decided to keep that service running for the summertime after customers complained about waiting in long lines. Another new thing is the expansion of the popular dairy-free options from last year. Multiple flavors with both oat and coconut milk options will be available more often this season.

Murray is more than ready for customers to return to hopefully the first ‘normal’ summer in a few years. He says, “This is the get back to it summer without a doubt. The staff is super excited and we’re super excited. We have a bunch of seasonal events so hit us up on our social media pages and you’ll see the superhero day and the pirate day and stuff like that. We are excited about it.”

The Dairyhäus is open from 4-9 p.m. on weekdays and from 12-9 p.m. on weekends. This will continue until the summertime when school lets out. At that time it will open every day of the week from 12-0 p.m.
