After the difficult work of self-assembling a bed, the obvious reward was some top notch ice cream.
Anyone who’s been in or around the Twin Cities for an extended period of time has probably heard of Sebastian Joe’s. I learned about Sebastian Joe’s shortly after moving to Northfield, Minnesota – a solid 40 miles away from the Twin Cities. As you can see, the store has a little bit of a legend surrounding it.
Sebastian Joe’s is a locally owned and operated ice cream maker with two locations in the Minneapolis area (one in Uptown and one in Linden Hills). The ice cream is uniquely flavored, made from high-quality equipment, and nearly all of their flavors are certified kosher! Sebastian Joe’s two signature flavors are raspberry chocolate-chip and oreo, but they’re rotating list of flavors include such varieties as vanilla basil, chocolate chip teddy graham, and madarin orange chip. Reading the titles of the flavors is always an enjoyable in and of itself. Some of my favorites include ‘immaculate confection’ (vanilla, ginger, and honey) and ‘when pigs fly’ (maple, bacon, and chocolate chip) – that one, obviously, is not kosher.
In addition to ice cream, Sebastian Joe’s also sells a small selection of baked goods as well as a full espresso menu:
I ordered a Joe’s Brr Bar – oreo ice cream dipped in chocolate:
My friends ordered an oreo milkshake and a scoop of salted caramel (unpictured):
This stuff is good. Like really GOOD. So good in fact, if you come here on a warm evening, the line is likely to be out the door and you can expect to wait 30-60 minutes to get your chance at the counter. Word to the wise: it’s worth it. 🙂
