These bright, sunny days and skyrocketing temps are begging for fresh, sugar cones, clutched in hand as we try to stem the tide of slow oozing sweet cream over knuckles. Now, it the time for ice cream - even if we’re continuing to grapple with this pandemic. With brand, new shops springing up in Minneapolis (Bebe Zito) and St. Paul (2 Scoops), it’s time to dig into the cold stuff.

Sebastian Joe’s was the shop that introduced Minneapolis to adult flavors like zinfandel in ice cream along with more kid-friendly concoctions with Oreos and chocolate chips and it feels so good to have them serving up those old favorites now. Order walk up for a cone tipped safely into a cup.

3. Bebe Zito Ice Cream

704 W 22nd St

4. Milkjam Creamery

Copy Link
2743 Lyndale Ave S
Minneapolis, MN
(612) 424-8855
Visit Website

This is what happens when a chef creates an ice cream shop with flavors including a coriander and orange ice cream that tastes like Fruity Pebbles, but better. The toppings available take the scoops into another stratosphere of flavor, plus, several options just happen to be vegan. Best of all, it’s possible to get Milkjam pints delivered locally through next door’s World Street Kitchen- or around the metro area through MN Pure & Clear Ice.

7. MN Nice Cream

Copy Link
807 Broadway St NE
Minneapolis, MN 55413

Soft serve is all dolled up with glitter, sprinkles, drizzles, and even doughnut holes. While it is all a bit over-the-top, the cones and doodads are delicious build-your-own adventure creations. Order online for curbside pickup.

8. Seward Soft Serve

Copy Link

Order online for vegan and dairy rich ice cream. Order online for pick up Friday and Saturday 2pm to 5pm. Try the vanilla soft serve topped with Serious Jam’s blood orange and whiskey marmalade. Shop through all the other locally made goods while you’re there.
