If you stopped by Sebastian Joe’s in Linden Hills this winter, you found more than ice cream inside. A major renovation project was underway. Owners Mike and Tim Pellizzer describe it as a complete face-lift lead by architect Christian Dean to give the Linden Hills location a whole new look and layout.
Sebastian’s Joe’s has remained open during construction, moving into the indoor patio, where customers could still enjoy ‘fresh made daily’ ice creams, hand roasted coffees and homemade tasty treats.
But the wait is almost over. The grand opening is scheduled for Saturday, March 16. Customers will walk in to a light-filled open floor plan, high ceilings and bright colored tile, even window seating. The best features of the much-loved garage door patio area have been enhanced with new bistro seating and bright new colors.
The Pellizzer brothers have owned and operated Sebastian Joe’s in Linden Hills since 1987. Their other location at Hennepin and Franklin Avenues has been open since 1984.
