    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.

    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).

    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!

    If ordering a scoop for each person, then I recommend you order 3 scoops in a big cup then ask for some empty cups to divide to save money. This will cost less per scoop then ordering separately.
