“Worth stopping in”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

This is quickly becoming my favorite place to get ice cream. The customer service is great, the fudge is delicious, and there always seems to be some sort of new exotic ice cream that I never would have dreamed of myself.

“Great ice cream shop”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

This is a true ice cream shop. 30+ varieties of hard ice cream. Generous servings and great prices. Cheaper than Dairy Queen and, in my opinion, much better. We don't live in Mankato but we stop here every time our family is in town. Neat building as well that the shop owners remodeled and kept remnants of its history. If you like ice cream, this is a must-stop for you.

“Great find for dessert”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

While driving to lunch at Pub 500 we saw this ice cream shop and stopped for dessert. Fantastic find, cute place, 32 flavors of premium hard-scoop ice cream. Presume it was the owner who "thanked" us for stopping in. He didn't know us from Adam (as we don't live in Mankato), but he was very grateful for the business. The warmer day in Minnesota brought out other patrons. I definitely recommend the ice cream--very generous servings. A special treat. Has a patio in back of building--could be a very popular spot in warmer weather.

“Cute Local Ice Cream Parlor”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Mom and Pops is located in downtown Mankato in a building built in the late 1800s that the owners renovated. They have an assortment of flavors, your traditional type and some unique ones. Their coffee is really good too and their ice cream comes with a waffle cone on the side which is a nice touch. I love history and love what the owners did to the building. They have blown up photos of the building taken 100 years ago when it operated as a general store. Don't forget to go to the back where the restrooms are! When they were renovating the building they found items sealed in the walls like a sword and dishes which are on display.
