This is the place if you want great ice cream. Even Pres. Obama has tried the ice cream here. They are constantly changing the flavors, adding new ones especially during the holidays.

This place has the worst pizza, really, the worst pizza I ever had in my entire life. not only was the sauce not correct for a pizza, but the dough was dense and hard like bad bread.

Stopped by this place for ice cream as we were shopping on Grand. Wow, I'm so glad we did as the ice cream is delicious and the portions plentiful. After tasting, we actually bought some back to the place were we staying for the weekend....More

I had the sweet cream. Flavors are really a personal taste. The outside patio is the sidewalk, so yes, your leashed puppy is welcome outside. Trust me, you will enjoy it. Even people waiting outside seemed happy to wait

We were the first creamery in the Twin Cities to serve premium ice cream. For 30 years families, friends, and even tourists have been coming to our ice cream shop to take part in this piece of the local experience. We serve your traditional favorites like chocolate or vanilla, but we suggest trying one of our original flavors like "Black Hills Gold" and "Sweet Cream". We are always rotating between our over 300 flavors, so be sure to come back again and again to try them all! This location also has a pizzeria. Along with delicious pizza, we serve fresh salads and hoagies. Come grab lunch or dinner and then enjoy a cone for dessert. We also offer delivery and online ordering. We can also cater your next event, host your next party, and even offer wholesale ice cream options. Email or call us for more information.
