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.

Yummy in the tummy

The staff was friendly and helpful. I had been hearing about this as the best ice cream in the Cities, but I think that honor still goes to Izzy's.

I had cinnamon/chocolate fudge brownie, mixed in a cup with waffle cone bowl, and husband had north country crunch. We both had singles but they were more line doubles we're used to. Would definitely go back but opt for mini.

Judging from the line of people waiting to order this place is a well known hangout for ice cream lovers. My wife and I ordered a 2 scoop sundae, having no idea just how huge it would be. Their ice cream is rich and creamy, their sundaes decadent.

Walking in to Grand Ole Creamery, you get blasted with the scent of freshly baking waffle cones. Lots of choices of ice crams. The single scoop is huge! Its $5 for the single scoops and its like the size of a softball. Go here hungry!

In these days of factory-like boutique ice cream chains, Grand Ole Creamery still holds its own. Reminiscent of the old mom and pop small town ice cream purveyors (notice I did not say parlours: none of the old fashioned stools lining a formica counter equipped with soda pour/taps that you see in the old movies). Ice cream is good, flavors... More

The ice cream is amazing and the girls behind the counter were patient and super sweet! Also, the best waffle cone in the world! :D

Had the sweet cream ice cream with pecans. So yummy you don't want a lot of stuff on it to distract you from the good ice cream.

Had something like mexican chocolate (woven with cinnamon); rich, creamy, incredible flavors, most flavors discrete rather than just melded together. Service and interior nice.

If you haven't been to the Grand Old Creamery, no offense, but you must be new in town. This place is a local treasure. If you haven't been, or haven't been in a while, make an excuse and get over to Grand Avenue and enjoy.
