We know all about Mary Coyle's ice cream treats, but we never used to think about this longtime Phoenix dessert palace as a great lunch place. We sure do now, thanks to the Sweet Virginia Ham Sandwich, a Coyle family recipe made with thin-sliced ham, sweet relish, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise. It's our favorite, next to Mary's Club Coyle, a triple-decker piled high with ham, turkey, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and Mary's homemade Thousand Island dressing. And did we mention the Chicken Ala Queen Mary? We meant to. Big scoops of diced chicken, bell peppers, and mushrooms, pureed into a tasty hot soup like you've never tasted. And for dessert? The best ice cream in town, of course.

Recently pulled back from the abyss by new owners, Mary Coyle still cranks out awesome ice cream - but not as much of it. The flavor offering has been slashed, including my personal favorite: rainbow sherbet. Haven't tried the food, since it was nothing special in the years leading up to the changeover, so it may have improved - but they can still turn out a wicked-good chocolate soda. If your favorite flavor survived, Mary Coyle is still the place to get your ice cream fix.
Gelato, yogurt, custard -- we can't keep track of the latest frozen treat trend, and frankly, why bother when you've got Mary Coyle in town? For more than 50 years, this wonderful business has padded hips in the Valley with its homemade ice cream -- featuring old standards like rocky road and chocolate mint chip in a throwback of an ice cream parlor. Our advice: Go for the whipped cream, hot fudge, and nuts. You only live once, and it's not easy to find a place that's proud to make... More »
No doubt many of you are too young to remember a time prior to reality TV, a world you may only vaguely glimpse in the occasional Leave It to Beaver rerun. You may also not be aware of the fact that in this distant era, not all ice cream came from chains such as Carvel, Baskin-Robbins, or Häagen-Dazs. Some folks actually hand-cranked their own. And there were always plenty of soda shops and ice cream parlors that made theirs on the premises, instead of having it shipped in from parts... More »
There are triple scoops of ice cream. And then there's the three-foot-tall wonder served at Mary Coyle. "The Mountain" is a seven-pound Mount Everest of various flavors, sauces, nuts and toppings.But Mary Coyle isn't all about excess, even though most of its ice creams carry a whopping 19 percent butterfat content. It's about quality. All flavors are made on the pink pastel premises, just as they have been for the last 50 years, from family heirloom recipes. We line up for sundaes,... More »
Everyone's heard of the proverbial "golden oldie." And if you've lived in the Valley any length of time, you're already well aware of our own "colden oldie." That would be Mary Coyle Ice Cream parlor, the local ice cream standard by which all others are judged. For 50 years, Coyle's take on everyone's "I scream, you scream" frigid dessert has ruled the Valley's roost, whether served up in cones, sundaes, sodas or the you-gotta-see-it-to-believe-it "The Mountain," a seven-pound Himalaya of...
