    I have never encountered better ice cream... EVER and sadly SB has transformed me into that person you roll your eyes at for being a snob...an ice cream snob. Raspberry Chocolate Chip is GOLD!

    Feeling adventurous? Go for their unusual flavors of the day, from egg nog to crème fraîche to mango and salted raspberry swirl to coffee stout. You won't be disappointed.

    Looking for a ice cream cake? Order ahead and they can do any two flavor combinations, designs, and a variety of fillings.

    Best ice cream in Minneapolis. Pro tip: if you're ok with sharing the pint is more ice cream and cheaper than two singles (and you can have multiple flavors).

    Pick an unlikely time of day to avoid rush hour lines during peek hours. And bring your binoculars if unfamiliar with the menu because its small print can be troublesome.

    lol I hear the mayor requested they change the name "Nicollet Pothole" :-) A bit rich, but I actually like it. Even the aftertaste is good - 5 mins after it's gone your mouth is still on a food-gasm!
