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!!!

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.

Outdoor patio almost lets you think you're in Europe. Excellent ice cream.
