  • If you're lucky and it's available, get an affogato with Guinness ice cream.
  • Great for dates!
  • Great breakfast, plus, they serve Sonny's Ice Cream!
  • Try whatever the strange flavor of ice cream or sherbet is for the day
  • Amazing gelatos and sorbets!
  • The ice cream is always delightful, the people personal and charming. And the best courtyard in all of the Twin Cities-- hands down.
  • Very so so.
  • So many flavors. Mostly organic with local ingredients; all delicious.
  • They have awesome rotating ice cream flavors that change quite often. The sit down dining is meh, but the food is good.
  • Chocolate hazelnut French toast with caramelized bananas and any flavor ice cream you want, is amazing!! Everything is fantastic here. A little gem in S. Mpls.
  • Cardamom, rosewater, pistachio & black pepper ice cream. Their patio is one of my favorite places in the city.
  • They've been operating in the same location since the '40s, most of that time as an ice-cream maker, but for the last decade as a beautiful cafe as well, with a flower-filled outdoor piazza.
  • Not just ice cream - their food is also really good. Try the veggie burger.
  • Ginger sorbet!!!!!!!!
  • You have to try the Organic Veggie Hash, it's the best.
  • Great caramel ice cream! Not too sweet, just perfect! The lemon cake was a little dry though
  • A charming caf serving serving everything from scrambles to oatmeal to pancakes for breakfast, soups, salads, paninis, and pizza for lunch. The kids will love their abundance of ice cream flavors.
  • Get the sorbet spritzer on hot days.
  • Couldn't decide between cardamom black pepper and cinnamon and cucumber pinot grigio mint. So I had strawberry.
  • Ask the fine folk at Crema to make you a sorbet-based drink. Be prepared to be amazed.
