Erma's Frozen Custard

Historic Custard Stand | Weekly Flavor Specials | Landscaped Picnic Area

Sample Menu

  • Simple option: vanilla-and-chocolate twist with a butterscotch dip
  • Fruity option: a Creamee Freeze—a combination of vanilla custard and slush ice such as grape or sour green apple
  • Over-the-top option: the Explosion—a blend of vanilla custard and your choice of candy, such as cheesecake bits and Snickers

When to Go: Unfortunately, Erma's Frozen Custard can't cure the winter blues, as it's only open from April 1 to Halloween night. When they are open, though, expect long lines during peak hours. CBS Detroit—who named Erma's one of the city's best spots for frozen custard in 2012—suggests heading over on weekdays before 5 p.m. for a shorter wait time.



Where to Sit: Head to Erma's landscaped backyard and grab a seat at one of the picnic tables nestled among flower patches and shady trees.



Inside Tip: Don’t hold up the line with indecision. Instead, stay abreast of Erma's weekly flavor specials before visiting. These always include two custards (past options range from french toast to dutch apple pie) and one nondairy, fat-free italian ice, such as blue raspberry.



While You're in the Neighborhood
Before: Work up a sweat in nearby Troy at the Sanctuary Lake Golf Course (1450 East South Boulevard), whose signature course unfurls across 190 acres of undulating bunkers and greens.
After: Perfect your poker face at The River (48762 Van Dyke Avenue), a lounge whose twice-daily tournaments benefit different charities.



If You Can’t Make It, Try This: When Erma's original stand—built in 1942 and deemed a Shelby Township historic landmark since 2010—is too busy, head to its newest location in Warren.
