When I come to Winnipeg to visit my grandmother, I always come to the Bridge! Their is always a really long line, but worth the wait, and its nice to walk out onto the bridge afterwards and enjoy your ice cream!

I got a Goog Special and I couldn't finish by myself. If you are not super hungry, share it for sure!

BDI in Winnipeg has some of the best ice cream in town. I always have the milkshakes when I go and they are very creamy and delicious. There can be long lineups there, especially if the weather is very nice, but it is worth the wait. It is also located in a very nice area because you can walk across... More

The best thing about BDI is its beautiful location--walk across the bridge and you find yourself in a lovely community to walk through, especially fun if you like to look at character homes. The ice cream, is ice CREAM not ice milk, and if that floats your boat you'll like the place. Myself, I don't think there's anything special about... More

The BDI has long been an institution in Winnipeg. Even after the worst winter in 116 years, and a pretty poor spring so far, This is the place Winnipeggers go for the Goog special, Banana split, other delectable concoctions or even a lowly cone. The ice cream is always deliciously smooth, creamy and flavorful. The lineups can be awful. but... More

Order an ice cream and go for a walk across the bridge to view the river. For families, you will discover a small park with swings and play sets. Others may want to go for a stroll around the loop and admire the stately homes. At times, service at BDI is slow and parking can be a challenge, but the... More

SO many desserts to choose from here and all equally delicious! The worst part about coming here for ice cream is having to wait in the queue but it's well worth it.

We try to go here every summer time. Every time we go it's always a treat. I usually spend no more than $20 for 5-6 person. Expect a line up and limited parking though. A must try when you visit Winnipeg in summer time. Best seller.

I drove my over the weekend and I was so sad seeing the Closed for the Season sign, We are very lucky in that we can cycle to BDI very easily. Absolutely best ice cream in Canada. The only U.S comparison would be Culvers. BDI is more of an experience than an ice cream treat. Other reviewers are correct- parking... More
