Love Izzy's

The St Paul location always has a line and for good reason. It is fabulous. The one by the Guthrie is a great place to get ice cream and then climb to the top of the little hill in Gold Medal Park and watch the river go by.

We visited the Minneapolis location on 2nd near the Guthrie Theater. The ice cream was good, but nothing to write home about. We have yet to taste an artisinal ice cream better than Jeni's Fresh in Columbus, Ohio. Flavor options were not very inspired here - all pretty safe. Prices are quite high. Ice cream is egg-based and it has... More

I got turned around in downtown Minneapolis and ended up on the UM campus which is next to Izzy's. I went in and could tell this place was going to be great. I ordered the Midnight Storm, which is graham cracker ice cream with peanut butter and chocolate junks. I had it made into a malt. Oh it was fabulous.... More

This amazing ice cream is made in store and tastes fabulous! Great for kids or as a date night. Parking is a bit of a nightmare and there isn't a lot of seating inside but it's worth the ice cream.

They have a very wide selection of flavours to satisfy everyone taste, i would recommend to start with the normal flavours like vanilla and chocolat, then twist it up a bit with the rest if the flavours. Just make sure u skip lunch if u want to sample a bunch of flavours.

No matter where I travel I always seek out ice cream. Izzy's was very good, I love the scoop sizes. The butter pecan had lots of pecans and the mountain spice is yummy. We leave tomorrow and I plan to get a double scoop before we head to the airport.

I love Izzy's creative flavors and the charm of their "izzy" scoop. NIce location and atmosphere as well.

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
