THE BURNS’ MALT & AL’S DESERTS
The Burn’s Malt is an Al’s tradition. It’s rich and thick with more than 6 scoops of deluxe vanilla ice cream, without any added milk. Choose your flavor, add in some toppings and you’ve got a delicious treat indeed! Al’s also offers specialty sundaes, maltinis, carrot cake, chocolate cake, pies, jumbo cookies and more. Sometimes you need to make a special trip to Al’s just for dessert!
Al’s Cafe offers outdoor dining beginning as soon as the spring weather officially arrives and lasting through summer (and sometimes into early fall). Come relax for a casual lunch in the fresh air at Al’s in DuPage Court.
