Great minds think alike, and in this case, it is all about ice cream!  Just a few weeks ago, a brand new ice cream shop opened up in the old Potbelly's location in downtown Rochester, Minnesota.  If you missed the news, Fuzzy's Italian Ice has a huge variety of delicious treats to enjoy, including bubble waffle cones.  As of March 14th, the Med City has another location sweetening up the NE side of town.

Bombon Now Open in Rochester, Minnesota

If you haven't heard, a new ice cream and smoothie shop is now open in Rochester near Century High School at 2571 Clare Ln NE Suite 101 in Rochester, MN (Get Directions).  According to Bombon's Facebook page, they feature "Bubble waffles, Milkshakes, Aguas Frescas, Fresh Fruits and more!"


I tried to stop in last night after one of my kids had a concert at Century but we just missed when they were open by about 10 minutes.  We always celebrate after concerts with ice cream so that was a bit of a bummer but I'm sure we will have more opportunities to check out the new spot in town.

Here are their hours in case you want to plan your outing a little better than I did last night:

  • Monday - Thursday - 7:00 am until 8:00 pm
  • Friday - Saturday - 7:00 am until 9:00 pm
  • Sunday - Closed
