Have you been to any ice cream shops this summer? A few weeks ago, we visited The Custard Hut Detroit location for the first time and we loved it!
The locally-owned business has two locations: Dearborn Heights and Detroit. Custard Hut Dearborn is located at 25947 West Warren Street and the Detroit restaurant is located at 18435 Plymouth Road.
I discovered Custard Hut on Instagram when I was looking for Detroit restaurants to visit this summer. Pictures of irresistible, yummy treats such as Caramel Butter Pecan sundaes and Pistachio Toasted Coconut in a waffle cone piqued my interest so I made a note to visit as soon as we could!
Hope you enjoy the photos from our visit to The Custard Hut!

It was a bright, hot day when we visited The Custard Detroit so getting a frozen treat to cool off was perfect.
We stopped by Dollar Tree on the way there to get the kids some sunglasses. I was happy to discover DT sells sunglasses for kids because you know they can get pricey, especially when you have multiple children!
My little ones can be pretty rough with shades. Picture fingerprint smudges from sticky fingers (especially ice cream) and trying to stretch the glasses as far as they can go (LOL!). Parents, aunties, uncles, and grandparents– I know you know what I’m talking about!
So for just $1 each, it doesn’t hurt my feelings if the kids’ sunglasses last for a short time. 😉 If you ever need some sunnies for your little ones, save money and hit up the Dollar Tree!
The kids were so excited to try a new (to us) ice cream shop. They kept jumping and running around. It was a little hard at first to get them to sit down. But once they got their ice cream, they calmed down.
Zhen got strawberry cheesecake ice cream with Kit Kat toppings. Zechariah wanted his favorite– Superman ice cream with rainbow sprinkles. And Zephaniah enjoyed Superman ice cream with cotton candy sprinkles.
It was Zaya‘s first time trying ice cream! Of course, she loved it! She shared a chocolate ice cream cone with Travis.
