Yummy frozen custard!

Stopped for some frozen custard after the day started to warm up. Nice and thick, good topping options, and a beautiful roof setting to look at the lake.

Hard to choose from the various options. The almond joy was sweet and savory. The chocolate was good too. Perfect day and fast service. You could smell the waffle cones from down the block.

We were in for lunch during our stay in Grand Marais. We ordered two Margarhita pizzas and they were very good. I would have liked a bit of char on the bottom but we were the first pizzas of the day; maybe the oven is hotter later on the day. The custard, unfortunately, was just okay. Had the Coffee Toffee...

I so love the Almond Joy Sydnami. I order it every time! This is just a neat place to sit and watch the water. A little on the pricey side. $37 for 6 of us to go out for ice cream, but VERY GOOD!

The kids chocolate cone we bought was $3, small and not very good. The cone had chocolate swirled in, it's taste and texture just weren't very good.

After a lovely walk in the harbor, we strolled by Sydney's and saw they served breakfast too! What a treat to find great coffee, wonderful Liege waffles and all on the roof top deck overlooking Lake Superior - does it get any better? Would definitely dine here again and try out some of the other options that they offer.

Custard? yes. Pizza? yes. But don't forget to try the Gyro. It is wonderful and a nice break from all of the other type of food around. Excellent quality and flavor. Sydney's has a wonderful spot right on Lake Superior with multiple options for sitting (out front, up high, and along the sidewalk). Check it out.

We love Sydney's Frozen Custard! I wish I could have an Almond Joy Sydnami right now. It's my favorite. This is a great place to enjoy some frozen custard on the beach of a beautiful lake.

We had a Three P pizza and it was super, thin crust and lots of topping. Had a turtle sundae and it was super. This is a spot we stop whenever we are in Grand Marais and we'll stop next time we're in GM.

This place is so much more than a custard stand. They have a terrific breakfast with locally roasted coffee; additionally, they have a super rad rooftop to enjoy it on while you overlook Lake Superior. Local draft beers with life entertainment on the rooftop as well. Check it out!!
