“Not just a great name...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

...actually some of the best ice-cream, too. And that's a lot praise given all that yummy ice-cream around today. But this is worth the extra trip. Grab a cone, sit by the lake, enjoy life. What more can one ask for? :)

“So many flavors!!! Why must summer be so short!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

Fun place to visit for the ice cream lover!!! Many, many flavors to choose from you will never be able to try them all in one summer!!! Also the dipped cones are yummy!! I like the raspberry dipped one! Cute, quaint little shop. Not a lot of seating but that is ok as you will want to walk to the lake anyways!

“Lots of variety”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

This is a nice ice cream shop with lots of variety and generous portions. There is not much place to sit and it can get momentarily crowded. But it is great to get an ice cream, walk to the docks and watch the sailboats while sitting on the grass there.

“Our favorite ice cream place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

It's a wonderful way to celebrate summer! We head over to Lake Minnetonka and always end up at Licks...lots of great flavors, and though they tend to have a line, they move through it very quickly.

“The Best Ice Cream in the Twin Cities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Just wonderful -timeless - perfect, just like a little ice cream shop a block from Lake Minnetonka should be. Closes for the winter, and its always a sad time to see the last days creep closer each September. Great flavors (Almond Joy -yummm), incredibly rich award winning Wisconsin ice cream, friendly owner, lots of summer kid help behind the counter, just really fun and great!
