Head over to Sandcastle on Lake Nokomis for the monkey bar, a chocolate-dipped frozen organic banana rolled in pine nut brittle. They've also got a wide range of novelty ice creams, with classics like a vanilla ice cream sandwich, drumstick, or orange dream bar.

Wise Acre Eatery

Wise Acre Eatery has a slew of frozen dessert options. Opt for the DIY vanilla or chocolate frozen custard sundae and choose from an impressive list of sauces and toppings, including sesame pepita toffee, bacon-peanut brittle, and salted or rhubarb caramel sauce.

Pizzeria Lola

Copy Link
Creating the DIY ice cream sandwich at Pizzeria Lola is almost has fun as eating the final product. Sandwich house made vanilla soft serve (drizzled with olive oil and sea salt!) between two fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies for a more sophisticated take on the classic childhood treat.

Eat Street Social

Copy Link
Eat Street Social’s dessert menu alone warrants a visit to the popular eatery. Try the frozen crepes with lemon mascarpone semifreddo, blackberry coulis, thyme honey, and salted almonds.

Sebastian Joe's Ice Cream Cafe

Copy Link
Swing by Sebastian Joe’s for a homemade dipped ice cream cone. Choose from flavors such as Heath bar, Butterfinger, and coconut, then top it off with your favorite Sebastian Joe’s ice cream. Joe’s Brr Bars are also a great option: Oreo ice cream dipped in Swiss chocolate.

La Belle Vie

Copy Link
This elegant eatery fancies up its caramel semifreddo and pairs it with lemon curd, vanilla milk meringue, and buttermilk sherbet.

Cafe & Bar Lurcat

Copy Link
Café Lurcat does it right with its dark chocolate profiteroles, stuffed with salted caramel ice cream and spiced candied pecans. Lurcat’s oatmeal stout float is also worth a try, made with hot espresso, butterscotch, and a caramelized white chocolate blondie.

Saffron Restaurant & Lounge

Copy Link
Admittedly, Saffron’s chocolate and passion fruit “millefeuille” is only semi-frozen, but it’s too good to pass up, with layers of dark chocolate ganache, chocolate phyllo, milk chocolate mouse, passion fruit gelée, and milk chocolate ice cream.

Tugg's Tavern

Copy Link
Cool off with the Tuggs frozen banana popsicle split, which pairs a frozen banana popsicle with strawberry Schnapps and whipped cream (topped with a cherry, of course). Not in the mood for all the fixings? Tuggs also offers a double-stick frozen banana popsicle for only 50 cents.

Izzy's Ice Cream

Copy Link
The Izzy Pop at Izzy’s Ice Cream is basically ice cream on a stick that’s dipped in dark chocolate, making for a convenient (and truly Minnesotan) on-the-go treat. Choose from flavors such as salted caramel or midnight snack.

Caffe Biaggio

Copy Link
Caffe Biaggio’s almond tortoni is a true Italian treat, pairing amaretto, toasted almonds, and macaroons together in its homemade semifreddo.
