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.

Stopped in for an ice cream cone after wanting to visit this location for several years. Was very impressed with the wide selection and free samples, although the ice cream cones are a little expensive, five dollars plus with tax for a single scoop.

I visited the Minneapolis shop with my kids. It is RARE that vegans can get anything in an ice cream shop, so it was a real treat for all of us. My kid's name is Izzy, so she got a free cone. Excellent ice cream. A busy shop, but worth the wait.

I don't trust a list of ice cream recommendations if it doesn't have Izzy's on it. The only place that competes is a Gelato stand in Monaco...Izzy's is much closer. Salted Caramel, Norwegian Chai, and anything with Chocolate are my go to flavors. It is a summer tradition at our home.

This is, without a doubt, the best ice cream ever. Homemade, fabulous unique favors, wonderful. The only drawback is the wait time--on a summer evening the line is down the block! But people are willing to wait because the ice cream is unlike anyplace else. Norwegian chai--chili chocolate--spiced plum wine -- oatmeal stout --amazing!

Lot's of choices, always wonderful! Flavors vary often and all are homemade! Service is friendly, cheerful and helpful. Outdoor seating is great when weather is good. Very popular place, yet line moves quickly. We've been here many times with many people and all have loved it. Recommend highly.

Even when I want to order something else, I'm drawn to salted caramel every time!! So yummy. I sampled the graham cracker and that was tasty. Others with us had cotton candy and green apple. Loved both. Nice treat on a nice, or not so nice, day.

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.
