This is by far the most creative, and most delicious ice cream place in Minnesota. Amazing flavors that taste spot on. Great place. Everything is good. Cake, ice cream pops, pints, cones, etc. All outstanding.

No doubt the best ice cream shop in the Twin Cities. I love the Peace Coffee flavor, but about another 20+ that I enjoy. A perfect destination for a real treat.

Our family living in Staint Paul took us to eat an ice cream at Izzy's, and we ate a lot. The place is cool and they have a lot of choices, flavors and sizes, but their main thing is good quality.

No one can beat the popularity of this ice cream place. There is always a line. My grandson would go there everyday if he could. Oh the different flavors.

The Twin Cities are fortunate to have three nationally recognized super-premium ice cream parlors. As an ice cream lover, I won't turn down an offer to go to any of the three. However, if the choice is mine, Grand Ole Creamery and Sebastian Joe's would be my preferred destinations. GOC offers the most variety of the three, and is most... More

If you're not an ice cream connoisseur, you may not think this is worth the price. That's the case with me. I'm happy with a little DQ Sunday, so paying $6 for a cup of top quality ice cream is not worth it. Let it be said that this is very good, though. They also let you try another flavor... More

Salted caramel is to die for; Norwegian Chai is a close second. You just can't go wrong. Thick, creamy, without a lot of extra filler ingredients, Izzy's ice cream is simply the best.

We travel all over the country trying homemade ice cream, and Izzy's is certainly a top shelf one. But c'mon guys, you only have a store front, so your overhead isn't that much.... do you really need to overcharge your customers so much?

Izzy's is easily one of the best ice cream shops in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area! Located on Marshall Street between Cretin & Snelling Avenue, there is plenty of street parking available in the area. The ice cream offerings are fantastic. The store churns out the traditional flavors every day (chocolate, vanilla, etc.) but also mixes up unique flavors, as... More

Definitely the best ice cream in the twin cities. Try the Norwegian Chai. The izzy scoop is a little extra scoop they add on top. The best way to sample the flavors is to get your two "tastes", then a Split single (one scoop that includes two flavors) plus the izzy scoop on top. There, you've tried 5 delicious flavors... More
