Yummy! Ice cream and coffee are fantastic, and there are a plethora of both types of shops in Minneapolis and St. Paul. But where can you get both? Sebastian Joe's is the place to head for the best of both worlds.
This small shop is located just on the cusp of Uptown, near the freeway. Because of its delicious concoctions and location, Sebastian Joe's is the perfect place to stop for an after-dinner treat. There is seating inside and outside, but the outdoor tables are much better for people-watching and atmosphere. The indoor seats are a bit stale.
The ice cream here is rich, full of treats, and very tasty. You can get standard flavors like vanilla and chocolate, but take a risk and try a specialty flavor. They vary from time to time, but include items like bubblegum and chocolate amaretto. You can also get several different variety of cones.
I haven't had the pleasure of indulging in coffee at Sebastian Joe's, but I have heard that it's just as fantastic as the ice cream. Sebastian Joe's is extremely popular so you may have to wait in line to get your delicacy, but the staff is quick and the wait never seems to be more than 5 minutes.
