Take a walk in the commons along Lake Minnetonka and enjoy an ice cream cone or a brat from Tommy's Trolley.

Stopped by while out exploring excelsior and had some wonderful ice cream. Had popcorn too and that was just run of the mill popcorn but still good. Fun place to stop by and hang out for awhile.

Seems like they have new SUP over last year and these were much easier to use and high quality.The staff is helpful, laid back, yet efficient processing everything to get you out on the water.

We try and take the kids for some of their fine ice cream at least once a year. Their ice cream has always been very, very good.

Enjoyed ice cream cones by the lake on a perfect Minnesota summer afternoon. The Nicollet Avenue Pothole and mint chocolate chip were our family favorites.

Whether you start or end your day at Tommy's, you'll love their selection of ice cream, there's even doggie ice cream. You should make reservations to rent their stand up paddle boards or kayaks.

The Trolley Serves Sabastian Joe's Ice Cream, the best. Great for a cone after dinner and walk to the park on the lake.

In town on vacation and our family told us this is the best ice cream. Right they are! Every flavor we tried was delicious, and the size options are great (from kid's cone to 2.5 scoop waffle cone). Friendly service. Right down by the water. A great place to stop to eat out on a bench or picnic table, or... More
