Stop by Sebastian Joe's for this harvest favorite - Pumpkin ice cream. And, if you want to add a bit of adventure to the pumpkin taste, try their Pumpkin Salted Carmel! Both are delicious!

I'm a little on the fence as to how to rate S.J.'s ice cream and cone. It is good, don't get me wrong, but it didn't send me out of this world, and for all the hype I've heard, I guess I was expecting more. Perhaps the fact that the heath crunch on the cone tasted stale is making me... More

On our first annual summer trip to or through the Twin Cities seven years ago, we discovered Grand Ole Creamery. Oh what a joyous discovery.

We love this ice cream so much that we ordered it for our wedding! Great local place, wonderful flavors, long lines but they usually go pretty quick. They're even busy in the winter, that's how good it is! My favorites - raspberry chocolate chip and garlic almond, seriously!

If you are in the area, or even if you aren't....you must go here for a treat. They have the best selection and the most delicious ice cream in Minneapolis. The kids loved it and we can't wait to go back!

Great flavor sand both indoor and outdoor seating. Lots of newspapers to read and meet people. In winter it has a gas fireplace. Summer there is a large turtle sculpture. Kid friendly.

We love sebastian joe's and frequent whenever we can handle the calories. =) Our favorite thing to do is get the banana split (the best value) and we love to get oreo, nicollet pot hole, and salted caramel as our three scoops. So delicious!
