“You can't eat it all... huge cones!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

I came across this place while googling a place to get ice cream in the summer. My boyfriend and I went in and got our icecream, and could not get over the selection or size of our cones! Great old fashioned place for ice cream served by the scoop. Five gallon pales in the display, with many flavors to choose from. It is connected to a pizza place, which we found was the real diamond in the rough. As we left we walked through the pizzaria, and were offered a free slice to try. I am not sure who it is, but the same man is always working there, making amazing pizza. We frequent this place. He had us at 'free slice'. The pizza is phenomenal, and also delivers. What a great two-fer! Highly recommended for dates, meeting up with friends, or getting together with the fam.

“Ice cream is fantastic, but the pizza is what gets us there!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

So we first stumbled upon this place when we moved to the neighborhood. The ice cream is handmade on site, and they have about 30 different flavors rotating on a regular basis. In the summer, the line is out the door and down the block. But the best part....the PIZZA! It's run separately from the ice cream shop, but they will deliver ice cream with your pizza! Homemade crust and sausage are to die for....we order from them a few times a month and I swear, it gets better every time! Highly recommended!

“An institution worth the wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Yes, GOC is probably only the second best home made ice cream place in town (Izzy's is tops), but it's a great neighborhood spot. The lines can be down the block in the summer, but it's worth the wait. Walk along Grand with your cone and pretend you live in a truly walkable city.

“Great Ice Cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

this is a place all the neighbors go to have Ice Cream. This is a cool place for treats on a summer evening on Grand Ave in St Paul. Grand is a safe place and has many great restaurants and stores for shopping

“Great ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

Long lines in the summer, but worth it. One of the true old fashioned ice cream shops serving home made product. I love ice cream and this is my favorite place in the twin cities.
