Minnehaha - SE MPLS

The DQ on the NW corner of Minnehaha Park in SE Mpls is a classic. Perfect location. Who could resist a bike ride down by the Falls without stopping at the DQ on your way home? I cannot imagine who this person would be...

I consider this to be a destination DQ where you can plan a day out with the family with DQ as the highlight. There is an awesome dog park on the river just south of the DQ as well.

The store itself does not have indoor seating but plenty of room inside to accommodate a long line trying to get out of the heat. Outside there are 8-10 concrete picnic tables, which is more seating than I have found at any DQ yet.

Small vanilla cone: $1.49
medium: $1.99
Large: $2.39

Peanut Buster Parfait: $3.59

The small cone is the best value here. It is a significant price jump to medium--$.50--for another 3 oz of icecream? Crazy. The price for the small cone, though is less than average.

Size of the cone was small to average. It was a narrow cone, which typically bugs me. There is plenty of cone shelf to hold more ice cream it should be used. It was slightly ice, but still overall a marshmellowy flavor. Something was missing, though. Its flavor was muted. I have not experienced this lack of flavor in a cone before, so I will have to be on the lookout in the future.

Service was servicable. Not much to making a cone and handing it to me. It wasn't crowded on this sunny day.
