Location: 800 Excelsior Blvd, Excelsior

Why Go: If you’re spending the day at or around Lake Minnetonka and need a break from the heat, stop into Adele’s Frozen Custard. In our opinion, it just isn’t summer without a cup or cone of Adele’s specialty custard, topped with all the toppings you could ever want. Adele’s also offers Frozen Custard Pies like the Turtle Pie, which includes an Oreo crust, caramel, fudge, vanilla custard, pecans and cashews. Yum!

Location: 750 Grand Ave, St Paul

Why Go: Grand Ole Creamery is a Twin Cities favorite, featuring a blend of two American delights: pizza and ice cream! During his Twin Cities visit a few summers ago, Former President Barack Obama stopped by the Grand Ole Creamery and enjoyed a scoop of Black Hills Gold ice cream in a waffle cone. Needless to say, that flavor probably isn’t leaving the menu any time soon. Other awesome flavors we recommend you try for yourself include Peppermint Bon Bon and Strawberry Lemonade Sorbet.
