A very important topic this time of year: where to cool down with an ice cream cone. On the hottest days, any ice cream will do but if you want a cone that melt your brain with amazingness these are the places to try across Canada.
If you decide to try out Toronto’s Bang Bang Ice Cream & Bakery, make sure you’ve got some time on your hands. The lineups are often epic but so is the stuff they serve. Think: mango pudding ice cream with warm sticky rice in a Hong Kong-style waffle cone or a pastry puff stuffed with frozen Italian eggnog flavour.
If soft serve is your jam then La Diperie (which also just opened a Toronto location) is the place to get your ice cream fix. Don’t let the fact that the only flavour on the menu is vanilla throw you—at La Diperie it’s all about what you dip it in, like chocolate, hot peppers, or pretzels. They also have donut cones.
Vancouver’s Rain Or Shine is the only ice cream shop we know of that celebrates Taco Tuesdays—by shaping waffle cones into taco shells and stuffing them with ice cream once a week. Made with fresh, local ingredients, the shop scoops out flavours like malted chocolate, balsamic blueberry, and honey lavender.
Get your ice cream on the go in Edmonton at Scoop ‘n Roll’s roving food truck. Their ice cream artisans mix up customized flavours right before your eyes and serve them in a unique way: rolled up into perfect little spirals and topped with chocolate, nuts, marshmallows, and more.
What's Cardamom? Ground green cardamom (from no other than @silkroadspices) makes this the most unique flavour in the bunch. It may not be the first flavour that comes to mind but it is an aromatic wonder that you can't pass up on! Try it out with our Oaxacan Chili Chocolate for your next double scoop.
Looking for ice cream crafted fresh, batch by batch, in Calgary, Alberta? Look no further than Village Ice Cream. Go here for amazingly fresh flavours you won’t find anywhere else.
Winnipeg’s Bridge-Drive In (known as BDI) is legendary in Manitoba for creamy concoctions like the Goog Special. Come early as this retro seasonal ice-cream stand sees crowds of Winnipeggers every night and sometimes the line-up can take up to an hour. #worththewait
Cows Creamery franchises have sprung up across Canada over the last few decades but the original store opened in Cavendish, PEI in 1983. The creamery often wins the ‘Canada’s Best Ice Cream’ title. Credit goes to their made-to-order waffle cones and old-fashioned ingredients.
Saskatoon’s favourite ice cream parlour since 1978. Come here for ice cream, yogurt, and sundaes made fresh on site (like the epic one pictured above).
