Now celebrating 33 years in business, The Grand Ole Creamery (est. 1984) was the first retail ice cream parlor in St. Paul to manufacture and serve super-premium ice cream and other delicious treats, including the famous sweet-smelling, homemade, hand-rolled, malted waffle cones with a whopper in the bottom of each cone.
A favorite of Twin Cities’ locals, the line forms out the door and down the sidewalk during beautiful Minnesota summers. Now with a location near Lake Nokomis off Cedar Ave to cool off at after a hot sunny day at the beach. Don’t be intimidated by the line. It moves fast and eager ice cream eaters usually strike up interesting conversations while deciding which of the 31 flavors offered each day they’re going to eat. You’ll want to visit often as The Grand Ole Creamery manufactures over 200 different flavors like, “Black Hills Gold,” “Cotton Candy,” as well as their delicious “Sweet Cream” and other classic flavors.
