One of Livingston County’s most iconic restaurants is going out of business.
The Yum Yum Tree in downtown Brighton will be closing for good on Sunday. They’ll be open all weekend, giving patrons one last chance to get a world-famous Turtle Sundae.
Located on Main Street near the Mill Pond, the Yum Yum Tree has become a beloved destination for its ice cream and desserts (it was voted the Best Desserts in Livingston County for more than two decades), and for the elevated electric train that ran around the restaurant’s dining room.

This was posted on the Facebook page by the Yum Yum Tree’s owners:
“As word has gotten out quicker than I could imagine I’d like to officially announce that yes, Yum Yum Tree will be closing. I’d like to invite everyone, previous staff, regulars… Our last shifts will be this Friday February 23 5pm-10ish, Saturday 24, 12-10ish, and Sunday 8:30-3ish. All ending times are vague because quite honestly I’ll stay til 3am scoopin turtles and reminiscing if folks want 😊
There will soon be an article with more information but for now, we’ll hope to see you all this weekend!!”
