    Oreo and the flavor formerly known as Nicollet Ave pothole in a waffle cone! Eat it outside and make sure to grab plenty of napkins.

    Amanda Pederson · June 22, 2015

    Great variety of ice cream flavors

    Abby Anderson Jones · April 19, 2015

    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 ice cream snob. Raspberry Chocolate Chip is GOLD!

    Shawn Gould · January 24, 2015
  • Karina B.

    Weirdly very good coffee

    Karina Braun-Johnson · December 11, 2014
  • Praveen E.

    One of the best ice creams I've had and Pavarotti is my favorite flavor. Big Thumbs up.

    Praveen Ellur · October 14, 2014
  • Josh G.

    It is financially responsible to purchase by the pint, but then I just always eat the whole thing.

    Josh Grutza · August 25, 2014
  • Stephen K.

    Line is always long and sloooooooow

    Stephen Koontz · August 24, 2014
  • Ricky D.

    "Formerly-Nicollet-Avenue-Pothole" - that is all.

    Ricky DeMello · August 24, 2014
  • Leon V.

    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.

    Leon Van Eck · August 10, 2014
  • Colin T.

    Good god, the Oreo ice cream. There is no equal.

    Colin Thompson · August 9, 2014
  • Matt S.

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

    Matt Swiontek · August 8, 2014
  • Matt S.

    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).

    There's hardly a destination restaurant in town that doesn't feature a Sebastian Joe's handmade ice-cream choice on its dessert menu. Read more

    Raspberry chocolate chip ice cream!!!

  • Alana W.

    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.

    Alana Warner · August 17, 2013
  • Jessica M.

    Get the Oreo.

    Jessica M · July 23, 2013

    White Licorice, amazing!

    Kelly Land · July 21, 2013
  • NMarie

    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!

    NMarie · June 25, 2013

    Pavarotti <3

    Drea Potts · June 15, 2013
  • joel o.

    Nicollet pot hole is unbelievable. The Pavarotti is equally awesome. Salty caramel is a close second to those two.

    Raspberry Chocolate Chip in a chocolate-dipped cone! Then hop on over to Patina or take a walk around Lake of the Aisles.

    Karah Kregness · April 22, 2012

    Longer lines during the evening hours, but, still, take advantage of the free tasting spoons before making your choice.
