Izzy's from a former employee's perspective

Working as an ice cream scooper at Izzy's was my summer job as a junior in high school so this review is slightly biased, but I've also been eating at Izzy's since I was a toddler and I haven't worked there for a few years. The ice cream is fantastic (I should know since I've tasted nearly every... read more

Izzy's always has a great ice cream selection to choose from. The scooping staff is very pleasant and won't rush you if you have trouble choosing your cone. There was a short line the day I visited, but everyone was patiently awaiting their turn. There is seating inside and outside or you can window shop on the block if you... More

Hand crafted, labor intensified with unique flavors and their famous trademark the Izzy scoop sitting atop the smooth and creamy ice cream.

This is a fun ice cream parlor in a cute area down the road from Sonora Grill (read my other review for this place. Best food in St Paul!) Walking in to this ice cream parlor is like stepping back in time. The staff was friendly and the aroma of freshly made waffle cones was amazing. The selection was great,... More

Izzy's has the most varied batch of flavors I've ever seen at an ice cream parlor. So many that it's a good thing that often there is a line out the door so you have time to decide. With different portion sizes also it gives you even more to think about. I opted for the one with 5 Izzy scoops... More

Great service and so many choices. We had a group of eight and got our ice cream in many flavors and ways. I love the malted cone with the choc. malt ball in the bottom. They switch out flavors every day and post the changes online. You buy by the scoop and the "Izzy" is a tiny scoop on the... More

If you love ice cream, you will love Izzy's! So many flavors to choose from...and no matter what you choose, you will not be disappointed. I only wish I lived closer so I could go here more often. Just thinking about their ice cream is making me crave it!

Today I tasted Scandinavian Rhapsody. It was licorice with lemon chips. Izzy's has flavors like that quite a bit. The line is often out the door but it is worth the wait

We stopped here while vacationing in Minnesota, and it was so good. The ice cream is very creamy, and the smell of the waffle cones just hits you in the face as you walk in. It was a beautiful night, so we sat outside. They have plenty of outdoor seating. It is street parking, but we easily found a spot.
