I strongly feel that a right of passage for summer, is a trip to Sebastian Joe’s Ice Cream Cafe. My family and I visited the Linden Hills location on a weekday evening and it was predictably great. Sebastian Joe’s is almost always crowded. Be prepared to stand in line at any point in the day. We only had about a 15 minute wait, and I considered that a win. The staff this particular evening was not as cheerful or helpful as I’ve experienced at the Uptown location, but they kept things moving.
The ice cream flavor options change daily, but there are usually some regulars that are always available. Sampling a few options is acceptable, but the impatient staff and line of people behind us on this evening made sampling more than one flavor a bit prohibitive.
Our small group decided on salted caramel in a chocolate dipped waffle cone, a lime daiquiri sorbet with a plain sugar cone, the Oreo blend with a chocolate sprinkle waffle cone, a dish of surly beer ice cream and a raspberry chocolate chip with sugar cone. The total for our group of five was about $23.00 with no beverages. They have water coolers available in seating area, so unless you want one of their plentiful coffee options or a soda, you can grab a few glasses of water for free.
