Great frozen custard

Best frozen custard I've ever had. We were there twice in the week we visited. Great rooftop seating and great views of the bay but the custard is what we were there for.

It was suggested by friends that we try their pizza. We did and it was amazing. They do a wood fire pizza, and it tasted fantastic! They have outdoor rooftop seating, which was awesome. It was relaxing and we had a fabulous view of Lake Superior.

We love their wood fired pizza. They have an upstairs deck and enclosed downstairs seating...all overlooking the lake. They also have sandwiches and ice cream! This is a treat that you do not want to miss!

We grabbed ice cream here .... my husband and daughter had sydnamis. I had the turtle sundae and my son had a raspberry shake. All were good, but the shake was the best. The rooftop view...WOW. Very nice.

We had the wood fire pizza here back when the owner first opened so we looked forward to retuning. This time $40 for two pizzas was expensive and they were uneventful and barely fed our group of 7. The margarita pizza was so dry and had about two basil leaves for an entire pie. The 3 p's pizza was sweet... More

Our family eats here at least twice while staying in Grand Marais. Their wood fire pizzas are perfect. Their custard ice cream is so good! I was also impressed with their chai tea on a warm sunny day. Everything is scrumptious!

Stopped here while visiting for the arts festival. I wasn't sure what to expect having never had frozen custard before. Fantastic! I highly recommend the sydnami! A great alternative to a blizzard. Can't wait to return!

After a hard day of hiking we stopped at Sydney's for some treats. We each ordered a "Sidnami" which is similar to a Dairy Queen blizzard. I had the espresso/toffee and my wife had the almond joy. Then we went upstairs to the rooftop deck overlooking Lake Superior. The treats were both excellent and much needed. What was most impressive... More

Pizza was very good. Had a Margarita pizza and a pepperoni. Would recommend, sat on the roof and watched the sailboat. Definitely have dessert, the vanilla custard is creamy and delicious.

The highlight for me was the food not the custard. The Chicago Dog was amazing, and very affordable for Grand Marais. The wood-fired pizza is also awesome. And they have craft beer on tap and a roodtop deck :-) You order at a counter downstairs, then head to the dining room and they bring your pizza out to you. We... More
