Monona Bait & Ice Cream is an old-fashioned soda fountain, ice cream, and bait shop conveniently located across the street from the shores of Lake Monona.
Madison’s own Babcock Hall ice cream is served daily in cones, dishes, and ice cream floats. Monona Bait & Ice Cream features almost 20 flavors of ice cream, from longtime favorites like vanilla and chocolate to more inventive options like raspberry cheesecake and salted caramel toffee.
If you aren’t in the mood for ice cream, the shop sells a sweet variety of candies and treats as well.
Live bait is available and includes panfish leeches, spikes, wax worms, red worms, leaf worms, dilly worms, and night crawlers.
