HIDDEN GEM: Dar's Double Scoop

I always notice this shop every time I drive by-it has a silly hot dog statue that makes me laugh all the time. Dar's Double Scoop is on the corner of Rice and Cook in St. Paul--you can't miss the funny statues! They serve delicious ice cream and pizza but I also gave their hot dogs and malts a try. 

Their ice cream waffle cones were huge and very affordable-- a small cone was only $2.50. Very generous scoops.

We ordered a Chicago style hot dog, Coney Island hot dog ($2.50 each)  and cheese curds ($3.50). Great prices, great taste!

The chocolate malt was decadent and super chocolaty. I loved the little wafer with whipped cream on top, too. Plus it's plenty large and good for sharing. 

This shop is a place where families and friends can enjoy some ice cream and catch up. Come on down to this old school ice cream and pizza shop and support local business.  Next time I think I'll order a pizza!
