Won't stop 'til I've tried them all

Every rave you've read about this place is spot on. The ice cream is that good. I love the "Izzy" (the little extra scoop that is added, like a grace note, to your order), and everything we tried was delicious. Even my father-in-law, a lovely man of few words and one who doesn't get excited about... read more

Although pricey, Izzy's is still our favorite ice cream place. Just last week when we had guests from Texas, my husband said, "We never have company from out of town without going at least once to Izzy's." And off we went. There is always a wonderful assortment of flavors to try from chocolates to fruits to liquor. Hard to pick... More

Lik others here I feel like Izz's is a little overpriced, but for a sumer treat,it can't be beat. If yo've thought about it, they probably make that flavor of ice cream.

Izzie's Ice Cream is a family favorite in our house. It's become The favorite reward for a job well done or topping off a return from college. The "Izzy " topper lets you sample your next visit's favorite scoop. The freshness and creative, ever changing, varieties make Izzys the very top choice in Ice Cream parlors. I only wish they...

For her 12th birthday recently, my daughter had a party at Izzy's with 7 guests. I was really impressed with how well the party was organized. We had a dedicated space next door with plenty of room. The girls got to decorate ice cream containers and then got to go into the kitchen to make brownies, ice cream and ice... More

Love the ice cream, although it can be costly to take a group there. The variety of flavors and unusual flavors cannot be beat. Cakes and sandwiches are very good and are sometimes a faster option. Birthday cakes from here are quite popular. Be ready for lines on hot days! To their credit, the crew behind the coolers keeps things... More

If you like Ice Cream, this is the go to location in St Paul. The flavors are great. The butter content divine. Selection great. The Izzy is a nice touch, letting you experiment with mixes and to try a new flavor. Way overpriced, but, for a treat worth it. My suggestions; Beet (when they have it), Salted Caramel (They were...

My husband and I are vegan so we thought it was great that Izzy's had nondairy ice cream, and the ice cream was excellent (peanut butter, blueberry, and strawberry). The service was also efficient and friendly. Izzy's is close to our house too so we could walk there. However, we probably will not go back because of the cost. My... More

If you're looking for really great ice cream in St. Paul, one of the best places is at Izzy's. It's not far from St. Thomas University, and it's location is just over the Mississippi river bridge between St. Paul and Minneapolis. The shop is small, with only a few tables, and in nice weather a few more just outside. But... More
