The weather is getting warmer and people in South Dakota, Iowa, and Minnesota are screaming for ice cream! But where are the best ice cream shops in town to beat the heat?

The Sioux Empire is lucky to have great local ice cream spots to enjoy a sweet treat. But Minnesota is home to some of the best ice cream eateries in the country.

Whether you're a frozen yogurt fan, looking for a refreshing shaved ice, or a classic ice cream cone, you'll find a tasty ice cream dessert in some of Minnesota's top shops. The next time you visit our neighbors to the east, visit two Minnesota ice cream joints that were recently named on the "Top 100 US Ice Cream Shops" list from our friends at Yelp.

So did the Top 100 US Ice Cream Shops happen? Yelp "identified businesses in the ice cream category, then ranked those spots using a number of factors, including the total volume and ratings of reviews between January 1, 2022 and March 31, 2023." Even though this list is from 2023, these Minnesota shops are still some of the very best you can have!

At #50 on the Top 100 US Ice Cream Shops list, a cute ice cream spot in White Bear Lake, Minnesota is like a little slice of heaven. It's called Cup & Cone.

Cup & Cone is known for its exciting and fruity soft-serve flavors like raspberry, pineapple, orange, cookie monster, and chocolate mint.

What's another neighborhood Minnesota ice cream shop that's the best in the nation? It's called Edwards Dessert Kitchen and it's located in Minneapolis. 

Not only does Edwards Dessert Kitchen create delicious ice cream treats, but they also have other amazing dessert creations. These gourmet desserts include mousse jars, miles of pies, Blueberry Buttermilk cheesecake, and the Purpleberry Pavlova. These desserts look too pretty to eat...almost!
