Ranked #2 of 452 Restaurants in Regina
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Cuisines: Canadian
Neighborhood: Core
Description: This building serving their soft serve ice cream has been there for many years. We have eaten ice cream there for over 30 years. Their soft ice cream (several flavors, depending on the day) is the best and that is what I always order. The soft serve chocolate is the best flavor and I have never had any to compare to Milky Way chocolate soft ice cream. They have "flavor of the day" and also serve many, many flavors of hard ice cream. Customers cannot wait for the Milky Way to open in the spring and watch the weather for when it closes in the fall so they can get their "last ice cream" there till it reopens in the spring. The line-ups are long, especially in the evenings, so plan to wait before you can order what you want. My last few visits they had to open the third serving window because the line-ups were so long. We were talking with someone who had visited friends in Regina and they told us about this ice cream place that was "so good" but could not remember the name of it -- they did not have to remember the name because we knew it was the "Milky Way".

The Milky Way is a place that most days has a line up in front of it. People from all parts of Regina travel to get their favourite from here, season after season, year after year, for now over thirty years. If you are in the area, it's worth a detour off the main highway, to treat yourself and your... More

My partner insisted that we stopped here while visiting her family (she grew up in Regina and went here as a kid). They have great creamy soft serve, so it's definitely worth a stop. However, all the sugary leftovers means tons of wasps. You won't want to spend much time there. There is seating around the side of the building,... More

The establishment is is the old school type set up with walk up windows and typical of the type from which the authentic establishments evolved. The ice cream lives up to its reputation. Having owned and operated a similar business for many years, Milky Way offers a wide selection of premium hard and soft ice cream in a variety of... More

Took my wife and our nephew to Milky Way the other day. I had a coffee milkshake and I got to say I was not impressed. I had heard such good things about this place but it fell short for me. Very hard to find a parking spot also. They serve chapmans ice cream which you can buy in the... More

I've been eating here for longer then I can remember. I'm all about the soft ice cream. Chocolate vanilla twist, hot fudge milk shake, turtles Sunday and scor/Oreo cyclone are my go to picks. But anything is great! Even the hotdog and hamburgs are really good and priced well. I think I'm going to go there right now! Crazy good... More

You know that summer is around the corner when you hear that the Milky Way is open for the season! I no longer live in Regina but was there to visit and this was one of the Must Go places on my list. The ice cream was just as I remembered it as a child. They have a variety of... More

This place is a BIG problem for me. I love soft ice cream and they always have vanilla, chocolate, twist (v&c), flavour of the day and 'fotd' twist in addition to a vast selection of hard ice cream choices. I attended regularly when we lived in Regina and have stood in line in both rain and snow to eat there.... More

Sorry but I was really looking forward to some outstanding ice cream and found this to be quite ordinary. Nothing special about the turtle sundae. Not that it is bad, just nothing to write home about. I was disappointed because I was expecting better.

A tradition followed by many Reginans to wait in line on a nice evening to enjoy a fair priced and satisfying Milky Way treat. Dont forget to lock your car though. . The local neighborhood isnt as sweet.
