Great Ice Cream with a High Price Tag

Muki does indeed have excellent ice cream. However, people are really interested in feeling good after their ice cream and in not feeling ripped off. The prices could be a bit lower so that the experience is excellent!

While walking towards the river in Old Montreal, I saw the Xavier Artisan Cafe so I stopped in for brunch. I had a grilled chicken and avocado and a coffee for brunch, which was quite good. I couldn't resist having some of the hazelnut ice cream after sampling some of the flavours. It was excellent:) A cute little cafe with... More

Our attention was drawn to Xavier Artisan cafe initially. And it wasn't until we entered we found it was a joint venture with Muki ice cream. The cafe is all home cooked cakes and goods.they also make their own bread. The ambience was very pleasant. Teas, coffee and home made lemonade available. The lemonade was very nice. Sampled the very... More

I go to LOTS of ice cream stores, and this product was good. Creamy, great texture, and wonderful flavor. The help is awesome, patient, and glad to help and strike up a conversation. The building is even cool. The setting can't be beat; along the waterfront,allowing us to walk the street, take in an open air market, and explore. Many... More

After walking around Old Montreal for most of the afternoon, my family decided on a little ice cream. We had seen Muki as we ate at Stash and decided to try it. The ice cream was very good and the service couldn't have been better. It was a really nice way to take a break after a busy day of... More

I am a sucker for homemade ice cream, and this little shop had delicious ice cream. The day was chilly and rainy, but we ate it anyway. It was worth it.

We came here for a treat on our anniversary. What fabulous ice cream! No crap, no fillers, just great, natural ice cream with none of that horrible commercial ice-cream aftertaste. Worth every penny for a handcrafted, delicious product! Anyone complaining about the cost should just go to the grocery store and load up on the cheap garbage they sell there.... More

The best ice cream/gelato in all of Montreal! The small shop has a great friendly owner who loves to chat. My wife loved the coconut, I was torn between espresso, chocolate, and hazelnut. All great choices. Visit this place!

Stumbled upon this charming shop on a weekend visit. The ice cream was delicious and the owner was a delight. The cones were wonderful as well, very light and crispy. The ice cream is a bit pricey so would not make this a regular stop if I lived here, but was a very special treat. The triple cream and pistachio... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
