I was in Winnipeg visiting and I heard that BDI had opened for the season. I have not been to BDI since 1993 when I left the city and much to my surprise nothing has changed and it's just as I remembered. CASH ONLY Worth the wait.

BDI is a summer favourite every year. The ice cream is great and it's fun to walk across the bridge with the kids. You do have to wait, but that's expected.

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

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
