The ice cream here is great. And the waffle cones are fresh and wonderful. There is usually a line in the summer, but it moves really quickly. We go here often in the summer since it's close to our house. I've had lots of different ice cream flavors and they've all been great.

I purchased the Snickers Ice-Cream Cone and it was wonderful. The scope was huge and the ice cream was delicious. All the ice cream is made by scratch at the location. I highly recommend this place.

Lots of flavors to pick from and they have waffle cones. It's easy to spend $5 a person so watch your wallet. Street parking.

I have loved this ice cream shop for many years!! I take my grandma (now 86 yrs old) here a few times each summer with the kids. The variety of flavors is amazing and in my opinion well worth the price (especially for the portions you get)!!! I gave the Creamery one less "star" because of one thing - the... More

The shop does not live up to the hype. The ice cream is ok but nothing spectacular. Our trip was spoiled by our car being blocked in by the shop's employees. When we came out and asked them to move the cars, we were told in a very accusatory voice that we should not have parked in the customer spots.... More

Charming ice cream parlor. Staff was friendly and let us sample as many flavors as we needed. The ice cream is yummy and the cones are fresh. The serving size is huge!

I have not had anything but ice cream here. I treat myself every few months. It's hard to decide what delicious flavor to have, but they give samples! Portions are VERY generous, sometimes I get the kids portion. Ice cream is always creamy, not overly sweet. Always a good experience. Atmosphere is quaint - a little dark for an ice... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. I had been hearing about this as the best ice cream in the Cities, but I think that honor still goes to Izzy's.

I had cinnamon/chocolate fudge brownie, mixed in a cup with waffle cone bowl, and husband had north country crunch. We both had singles but they were more line doubles we're used to. Would definitely go back but opt for mini.

Judging from the line of people waiting to order this place is a well known hangout for ice cream lovers. My wife and I ordered a 2 scoop sundae, having no idea just how huge it would be. Their ice cream is rich and creamy, their sundaes decadent.

We were the first creamery in the Twin Cities to serve premium ice cream. For 30 years families, friends, and even tourists have been coming to our ice cream shop to take part in this piece of the local experience. We serve your traditional favorites like chocolate or vanilla, but we suggest trying one of our original flavors like "Black Hills Gold" and "Sweet Cream". We are always rotating between our over 300 flavors, so be sure to come back again and again to try them all! This location also has a pizzeria. Along with delicious pizza, we serve fresh salads and hoagies. Come grab lunch or dinner and then enjoy a cone for dessert. We also offer delivery and online ordering. We can also cater your next event, host your next party, and even offer wholesale ice cream options. Email or call us for more information.
