Best Ice Cream in Montreal

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... read 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

The owner is extremely nice and very proud of his creations rightly so :-) I love the mango flavor during the summer which is fresh and absolutely real. In autumn he brought out another amazing flavor (wild strawberry) which is white in colour but when you put it in your mouth its like strawberry in your mouth (definitely no colouring... More

Went to this cute little ice cream/waffle shop with my girlfriend and best friend recently and I was pleasantly surprised by both the quality of the waffles, the freshness of the ice cream and the cordial attitude of the owner. For the location and the food you get, this place is actually quite cheap! The price listed include tax and... More

We spent a warm day walking around the city and, by the time we got down near the Old Port, we were on the lookout for ice cream...not gelato, not soft-serve, but hand-scooped ice cream. When we saw Muki's advertisement for ice cream made on-site, we decided to give it a try. My husband chose espresso flavor, and I had... 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.
