After dinner by my hotel my group walked to Izzy's for dessert. We arrived around 7:30 pm and the place was crowded. Luckily there was no shortage of employees to assist us. There are so many choices! I must have tried five or so and never received a dirty look from the employees. The fruit based sherbet/sorbet was like eating... More

I always stop here on my way through town. Whatever flavor they say it tastes like, IT DOES. I also love their Izzy scoop option to try new flavors. Keep being awesome, Izzy's!

We first heard about Izzy's when a local restaurant featured one of their flavors as one of the restaurant's desserts. The store is easy to find, and they carry a great variety of flavors. We tried five flavors between the two of us (thanks, Izzy scoop!), and all were wonderful. The only critical comment is about the store - it... More

Drove in from Eden Prairie while on vacation just to have the dessert and in response to the reviews here. Was not disappointed. Had the izzy scoops and sampled 5 different ice creams. Like a beer flight only ice cream!!! The waffle cones were tasty and homemade. Had the mystery flavor of sweet corn was amazed at how good it... More

Odd shaped place with a highly efficient system for serving ice cream to a lot of people in a short time. Good thing too, since a line is pretty much the norm at Izzy's. Of course the line is because of the ice cream. Wonderfully tasty, nice texture, creamy and a wonderful assortment of special flavors in addition to the... More

Four of us stopped in at the location near the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis and enjoyed the ice cream. Gotta get one with the Izzy Scoop on top!

We were staying with friends in Minneapolis and they wanted to surprise us with the Izzy's experience, so wouldn't tell us what an izzy was. So if you don't want to know quit reading, because in addition to your regular scoop of great homemade and unusually flavored ice cream, you get a little mini-scoop, the "izzy" to try something else....

We consider ourselves ice cream lovers and this plays makes loving ice cream fun. Love that it is a green establishment, love the original flavors, love the Izzy scoop. This is a must stop for our 5 person family every time we enter the twin cities area.

Delicious ice cream! There might be a line but it is worth the wait. They have the "Izzy" scoop, a little extra scoop of ice cream that allows you to try a second flavor without having to have two scoops.

If you want the best ice cream in the area this is the place to go. Helpful service and amazing flavors. The 1 drawback is parking.
