“I pretty much live here in the summer.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

This is like "Cheers" for coffee and ice cream lovers. It's a neighborhood spot cafe with the best raspberry chocolate chip ice cream anywhere. Really. Especially with a hand-made chocolate-dipped cone. My daughters claim that their new hometowns, San Francisco and Boston, have ice cream options that pale in comparison. I come here mornings to read the paper (provided free), drink coffee (OK, but not as good as the ice cream) and people-watch. This is where you go if you want to overhear normally -reticent Minnesotans spilling their secrets to friends.

“Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Love Sebastian Joe's- great ice cream, I've tried basically every flavor. So delicious, a sweet lover's dream! Sebastian Joe's is also large enough to relax with friends or come and do homework!

“A Minneapolis Must-Do”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Last year we took a visiting friend around the city and this was one of our stops. My husband, who grew up in Minneapolis, had never been here either. I knew it was wonderful and they both loved it too. Now my husband is already talking about summer coming so we can go back for more ice cream :)

Best homemade icecream i've ever had! Highly recommend trying something new here - and go for one of their homemade and hand dipped cones - to die for!

Even during the dead of winter, Sebastian Joe's is always able to stir some magic into our desert experience. Love these guys!
