With two locations, on the edge of uptown (corner of Hennepin and Franklin in Minneapolis) and in Linden Hills (across the street from Great Harvest Bakery),
Sebastian Joe’s is a Twin Cities destination for any ice cream lover.
I first went to Sebastian Joe’s when I was 10 years old: 25 years ago! I had their signature Raspberry Chocolate chip.
All I remember was that it was good. So I had to give it another try. And while I was at it, I might as well introduce my children!
Sebastian Joe’s has gourmet ice cream. I think my favorite part of this delectable destination is that you never know exactly what they concocted. With well over 100 different flavors, they have a plethora of choices.
you must know that they only offer about 15 different flavors per day. With the most popular flavors–Oreo, Raspberry Chocolate Chip, and Pavarotti (banana, caramel, chocolate chips=yum)–offered everyday, the remaining flavors are anyone’s guess.
Another fun thing they do is sometimes they mix two flavors from the day before to make a one-time experience. I love this idea. Waste not, want not. Technically, it’s not extremely creative. BUT what it is is brilliant!
This is what Sebastian Joe’s says about their ice cream.
We use only the best ingredients in our ice creams and sorbets. You won’t find a bright green mint ice cream here because we use only all natural ingredients of the highest quality. That means no artificial flavors or colors.We are always experimenting with interesting new flavor combinations and strive to provide you with a variety of choices each time you visit our store. From the Chocolate Coyote (chocolate ice cream, cinnamon, cayenne pepper) to the basil sorbet, we are looking to surprise your taste buds and make them happy!
I’m on the quest for the best ice cream cones, but Sebastian Joe’s also has milkshakes and malts, ice cream pies, ice cream sandwiches, and Joe Brr Bars (Oreo ice cream dipped in Swiss chocolate). You can also get fancy homemade dipped cones in chocolate, butterfinger, Heath Bar, Almond, and coconut. They also have bakery items and have gone coffee crazy.
When you walk into Sebastian Joe’s in Linden Hills, you feel like you are entering a coffee shop. It looks like a coffee shop, it smells like a coffee shop, but the center of the coffee shop is not coffee. It’s ice cream.
This is my kind of place! The Linden Hills location also has a large, beautiful patio with a play area and a fountain to enjoy.
It’s beautiful. It’s delicious.
Seriously, what could be better?
Happy children? Well, I think you have found the place. Just look at these faces.
