We went to the one downtown in Minneapolis the night of the July 4th. Bad idea....the line was almost 2 blocks long headed into the building. So we visited this location the next night. And it definitely gives you the small town feel, where the locals and the family walk down for ice cream and chat at the table outside. Plenty of flavors to choose from but I went with my norm of Cookies and Cream and it was good. They also offer a pup cup for the 4 legged kids but ours didn't care for it. If you've never had I would say it's worth trying at least once.

I knew that if the current trend continued, someday soon we'd be paying more for a premium ice cream treat than for a meal. At Izzy's that day has arrived. We bought a meal at an outdoor concert in St. Paul and then headed over to Izzy's for a treat after the concert. The treat at Izzy's was delicious but cost more than the meal at the concert. There are lots of flavors to choose from and the "Izzy Scoop" that tops off each treat is a nice feature.

After reading all the glowing reviews I went there with a bit of skepticism that it could be as good as the hype. But it was!! While expensive, the servings are very generous and the ice cream incredibly flavorful. We had chocolate - rich and creamy, salt caramel - vibrant flavors with a tiny scoop of really strong coffee flavored on top. Yum, yum!

This is date night ice cream (homemade and a little pricey) but the flavors rotate and the waffle cones are fresh and it is so delicious. The portions are generous, a single scoop is probably about a cup of ice cream. And don't forget the izzy scoop! (The izzy scoop is a little teaspoon sized scoop they put on top that can be any flavor you want to try -- in addition to the little sample tastes before you order). Also the staff is great, I've seen the line out the door and they are always still so patient and hard working. Love love love this place!

Met a friend here for a treat. It was a treat --over $11 for two SINGLE SCOOP cones! the ice cream is good, but not fantastic. There is a wide range of flavors, which is nice. I enjoyed my ginger ice cream. the additional "Izzy's scoop" you get to try a second flavor is nice, but still but the amount you get and the facto this is not fabulous ice cream, I think it is quite overpriced. Still, for a nice, very occasional treat, sure. It is clean. the servers are patient and nice.
