Buddy’s Pizza

Buddy’s Pizza-Detroit

In February 2013, we headed to the chilly city of Detroit.  Looking for something to eat that would warm us up, we found Buddy’s Pizza.


Buddy’s has been around for over 65 years and has been featured in many different magazines, newspapers and  t.v. shows.


We went to the original Buddy’s on the corner of Conant and Six Mile Roads and although it’s nothing fancy, the pizza was delicious. The deep buttery crust, and gooey cheese made it one tasty square pizza!


They are very flexible with their menu too.  No meat? Fine. Gluten free crust? Sure. Vegan cheese? No Problem.

And if you check out their website before you go, you could even get a coupon for a few bucks off your bill.  (Or you can do what I did and check it out on your phone while you’re waiting for your pie to bake.)

Izzy’s Ice Cream

Izzy’s Ice Cream-Minneapolis/St. Paul

A few months ago, we headed to Minneapolis in the dead of winter.  And in case you were wondering, January in Minnesota is cold.  Very cold.  So, where did we choose to eat at while we were visiting? Well, Izzy’s Ice Cream of course!


Mike, Me and Keisha in our winter gear eating ice cream-January 2012

One of the best things about eating ice cream when it’s 18 degrees out is that the line is pretty short! That turned out to be a great thing for us because we were able to try quite a few flavors.

They had lots unique flavors, seasonal ones and the classics too.  Izzy’s is constantly coming up with new flavors and it was fun trying different ones each of our visits!

I can’t forget to mention the best part of Izzy’s…..it’s the “Izzy” scoop! It’s a little bonus scoop of ice cream that they put on top of your ice cream.  Ice cream on top of ice cream, yes please!!

Something else that impressed me when visiting Izzy’s St. Paul location was how much they focus on green solar energy.  Any business that goes above and beyond to cut their energy needs will have repeat business from me.


Yay for solar energy!

If you are in the Twin City area, head on over for a tasty treat!
