Mouthwatering waffle cones!

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... read 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.

We took an out of state guest here, and she had to come back during her stay for seconds. Yes, it's that good. They have amazing flavors that they switch out daily, so every day, there could be different flavors. What makes this place unique, besides that they make all of their ice cream, is that you get a tiny... More

5 of us had cones and cups of Izzy's yummy ice cream. The banana macadamia nut and the chocolate Oreo ice creams as well as the waffle cones were the crowd favorites. As always, there were many flavors to choose from, and a line of people waiting for their ice cream. The service was quick and friendly. And all orders... More

The place for ice cream! Many wonderful flavors. You get a tiny scoop (an "izzy") of a second flavor on top of your cone or cup. A great treat. They also sell hand-packed pints of your choice of flavor and if you are in a hurry you can run in and purchase a ready-packed pint from the freezer. Beware that... More

I thought the ice cream here was stellar. Big scoops, lots of flavor, and lots of interesting flavors. I sampled the Cabernet de l'Orange--different and delicious. I tried the Norwegian Chai--amazing. A friend tried a basil-flavored ice cream, and she loved it. I got my usual--Oreo--and topped it with an izzy scoop of sweet cream. Very good. I wish I... More
