Get in line. Worth the wait. The best deals around. Totally crushes DQ. So many variations. It's a White Bear tradition.

Cup and Cone will be very busy, but that is why you go there. The atmosphere about waiting in a line and seeing old friends is what makes Cup & Cone special.

This is a great local place, we always run into neighbors when we go here. It was the place we brought my husband's co-worker from Ireland and she loved it, because according to her, there is no place like this where she comes from. Good portions great company!

The Cup and Cone is a step backwards in time. Everyone lines up down the street and patiently waits for their ice cream. By the time you have been in line for 5 minutes, you will find yourself talking with others in line. The ice cream choices are numerous and the value is great!

The subs are very good and you can have them put on any of the available toppings or you can leave off any of the toppings each whole sub is cheap and enough for 2 people

This tiny desert place (which also offers food) is a great find. Only open in the summer and the line can be long, but standing in the line can be lots of fun and it moves quickly.

This has long been a White Bear institution. They are open seasonally from spring to late fall. Have a rotating selection of soft-serve ice cream flavors. Great sandwiches, malts & other ice cream goodies.

Our family has been enjoying Cup and Cone for over 20 years. Our cocker spaniels get a baby vanilla cone each year on their birthday. It is funny to watch a black or chocolate dog get vanilla ice cream all over their face. The single cones are HUGE. The sherbet and vanilla twists are good (my favorite is orange sherbet... More

My son and I stopped here for dessert after eating lunch out earlier. We've been here before and love the atmosphere, all the unique flavors of cones (today it was lime which he loved), and the size of the cone is amazing! My son had ordered a small! Great price and awesome flavor! It is a walk-up place and there... More
