“Cute little spot, but better suited for just looking at rather than actually eating at”

Conny's Creamy Cone Incorporated
Ranked #219 of 902 Restaurants in Saint Paul

I used to live a few blocks from this place, and I loved how quaint it looked while driving by. It's always packed in the summer, and is kept up nicely (ie, freshly painted.) But the "food" is all chemicals, trans-fats, and artificial flavors and preservatives. Yes, it tastes great, because it's been engineered to do so! It's the chemicals masking other chemicals, not an actual food that you're tasting. I ate here several times - i wanted it to be a favorite stop with friends because it's so darn cute! - but i always felt physically ill after eating here because of all the chemicals. What a shame. This could be such a gem if they served real ice cream and real food (maybe even fried, just not in rancid gmo oil?) but instead they choose to poison their customers.

Conny's has been around for eons. They have dozens of flavors of cones and the price is still perfect. It's a great spot to hit after roaming Como Park or if you live in the area, it's a great spot after a ballgame.

This little "drive-in" is ALWAYS busy, so be prepared for a bit of a line...but they work it through quickly.

They have both ice cream items and grill items.

Have not tried the grill, but the ice cream is very creamy and very good. And, they have 20+ flavors of soft ice cream...in addition to the standard ice cream offerings.

Always try to stop here when am visiting Minneapolis/St. Paul.

We're originally from New England and associate summer nights with a drive to the local soft serve. Imagine our disappointment when we got to Minnesota and discovered it was "all Dairy Queen, all the time." Then imagine our joy at finding the one and only Conny's, a true independent soft serve where Conny and her friendly staff whip up the best soft serve around. You can even get a twist cone (chocolate and vanilla, something DQ can't do), not to mention numerous flavors, dips, sundaes, and shakes/floats. It's yummy--the real deal. And there's nothing like sitting on the red and white benches and watching the happy folks from all walks of life enjoying ice cream. Conny's seems to be open the minute spring arrives and stays open into the fall. If only there were mini-golf next door! Conny's is tasty, fun, and authentic.
