Friendly casual seating with yummy ice cream

Whenever I visit Minneapolis this great spot in Linden Hill near Lake Hiawatha is a must. My most recent visit did not disappoint. We had a party of 9 plus dog on leash and enjoyed the great ice cream and ambiance in their outside patio.

This is some of the best ice cream that I have had. Unusual flavors with great names. It will take you a little while to decide what flavor you will want. There are lots of choices. Every flavor that we tried was good.

Great tasting ice cream. Very rich and there are unique flavors but there are also standard flowers like vanilla and chocolate. The Oreo sundae is delicious but very very rich. Place is easy to find and street parking is easy to get.

We love finding the favorite local ice cream shoppes and Sebastian Joe's did not disappoint. Recommended by a waiter from our dinner restaurant who also lived in the area. Great flavor selection, Urban Utopia was a favorite. Luckily we were forewarned about long lines....it moves very fast. And was worth searching it out

Decided to try the local ice cream favorite. It was good, but opt for a plain flavor to get the best tastes.

This is easily the best ice cream we have had in Minneapolis, and surely the entire state. We went as a party of 4. The line was about 25 people deep but only took about 5 min. The ice cream was the smoothest and creamiest we've had. The were out of a few items and even more as we were... More

If you love ice cream it's a must see! Tons of choices all made fresh daily! I love the Nicollet Island Pothole flavor. Cool decor and casual atmosphere. Usually pretty busy but worth it. Easy to get a pint to go! Highly recommend!

I had the Swiss chocolate and almond ice cream and it hit the spot. My only complaint would be the art on the walls was very morbid.
