Description: We were the first creamery in the Twin Cities to serve premium ice cream. For 30 years families, friends, and even tourists have been coming to our ice cream shop to take part in this piece of the local experience. We serve your traditional favorites like chocolate or vanilla, but we suggest trying one of our original flavors like "Black Hills Gold" and "Sweet Cream". We are always rotating between our over 300 flavors, so be sure to come back again and again to try them all! This location also has a pizzeria. Along with delicious pizza, we serve fresh salads and hoagies. Come grab lunch or dinner and then enjoy a cone for dessert. We also offer delivery and online ordering. We can also cater your next event, host your next party, and even offer wholesale ice cream options. Email or call us for more information.

Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Handmade ice cream, huge scoops. Great neighborhood family place! The staff is very friendly and the service is fantastic. On hot days the line can stretch down Grand Ave.

“Old fashioned, homemade ice cream!”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

They had me at the smell of fresh waffle cones. We love visiting Grand Ole Creamery whenever we are in the area. The choices of ice cream is outstanding, the product is incredible and it's just a really fun, iconic Grand Avenue destination. You can't go wrong.

We all scream for Ice Cream! Amazing place for some good old homemade ice cream. The waffle cones are so delicious with a choice of many varities of ice cream. Be prepared to wait in line, especially on those spring like days when everyone is out walking the dog.

“Great Homemade Ice Cream”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

It has been a while since we have been to Grand Ole Creamery but I recall when it opened. We were living in St. Paul at the time and I was a graduate student. This quickly became our favorite spot for a treat. The homemade ice cream with the creative flavors was always wonderful, especially when it came in the home-crafted waffle cone with the malted milk ball dropped in the bottom. The old time parlor feel made it great place to enjoy a cone. We have dropped in a few times since then (whenever we make it back to the cities) and it is still great. Wherever you eat dinner in St. Paul, save room for dessert here.

“Incredible Ice Cream”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

Before heading back to South Dakota, we stopped at Grand Ole Creamery. Previously, I had been there and loved their honey ice cream. Since the flavors rotate, the honey ice cream wasn't available, but the pumpkin pie ice cream was fabulous- it even had marshmallows inside of it. Other had the pistachio, coconut, Mexican chocolate and more. Everyone was very happy with their ice cream! They sell pints of it as well, but we didn't have a cooler to take any home with us.
