“Best place for ice cream in the Cities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

Sebastian Joes gets a lot of great praise, and it should, it's really good. But if you want to sit and enjoy some very interesting AND tasty ice cream/sorbet at the location you buy it, this is the place to go. I had passionfruit sorbet and someone other delicious tiny bits of chocolate chip ice cream and my wife had sweet corn ice cream (she loved it) and cinnamon chocolate ice cream. Not cheap for ice cream though.

“Great Ice Cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2011

I've been on a quest for great ice cream since I moved to the Twin Cities last fall. i've been consistently disappointed, as many places have either great flavor, or rich creaminess, but never both! Until I tried Crema Cafe at the recommendation of one of my classmates, Ring Mountain Creamery out in Edina was the best that I had tried in the area. Now I am thrilled to report that Crema Cafe also understands the perfect balance between the textural creaminess and sharpness of flavor!

Their patio is lovely for eating you ice cream and doing a little reading. It does border on "Italian cheesy" but it isn't completely awful. The inside, less so - with the exception of a scary mural.

On the whole, decor aside, it is a lovely place with excellent ice cream. I highly recommend this place!!!

“Fantastic Ice cream and great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2009

We go to Crema Cafe for Ice Cream almost every weekend. It is a quaint little building with a cozy, Italian atmosphere and a great semi-secluded outdoor seating area. They have limited menu offerings for lunch and dinner, but the reason to go is for the hand-made ice cream and homemade desserts. If you like coffee ice cream, their version is absolute heaven. They typically have several different and unique flavors and a few flavors of sorbets. All outstanding. This is a great deviation for dessert.
