I have received the official word that The Portland Malt Shoppe is set to open on April 4 for the 2020 season unless it snows that day!  Well, like Prince sang sometimes it snows in April, but I am thinking not this year.

The Portland Malt Shoppe is a beloved spot for locals and tourists alike with breathtaking views of Lake Superior. The Portland Malt Shoppe first opened it's doors in 1989 even though that actual building had been a gas station and clothing boutique before that. Known for their famous malts and sweet treats,....... my go to is the mint chocolate chip cone. Yummy!  The Malt Shoppe has always been a great vantage point to take  pictures usually including whatever you are eating.

The prices have remained steady throughout the years and time just seems to stand still as you wait in line for a malt, sundae, cones or shakes all handled with care and delicious toppings to choose from. The Shoppe usually remains open until mid October depending on the weather so you have plenty of time in between to stop by and enjoy the sweetest spot in Duluth. The Portland Malt Shoppe is located near Fitgers at 716 East Superior Street.
