Update restaurant details
Ranked #2 of 442 restaurants in Regina
Certificate of Excellence 2013
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".

Milky Way is not a restaurant. It is an old fashioned ice creamery where you line up OUTSIDE to get your icecream. There are no seats inside, just a few benches along one outside wall. You can have a meal of sorts, if you want a hotdog or hamburger, but most people simply go for the best icecream in the... More

This is a summer tradition in Regina. After a walk in the park, or after a ball game or just because you feel like it, the Milky Way is The Place to go to get the Best Ice Cream.

Best ice cream in Regina! Their opening and closing dates mark the start of spring and fall in Reina. I tend to go when it's raining cuz the line up is shorter.

Been all over the world and when on holidays always enjoy my soft ice cream cone but none even compares to The Milky Way... So many soft ice cream flavours, love it. A true landmark in Regina. Been enjoying them my entire life and that's awhile...:)

Although there is limited parking and very few places to sit the ice cream is well worth the trip. There are usually long line ups that attest to the great quality of this product. They have many flavours of both hard and soft ice cream, as well as floats and, sundaes etc. The best ice cream I have had and... More

So much to choose from and always great tasting. You need to stop here. Excellent prices and service. Don't let the long line ups stop you from trying

If you live in Regina then I am sure you have been there, if your visiting or passing thru try to make an effort to stop. It is only open for a few months of the year and sometimes the line ups are a bit long but it is completely worth the wait.

This place is so good that there's almost always a line. The friendly staff keeps it moving though. Great place to go on a warm summer day.

This is just a walk up to be served place but the ice cream is the best you will find. The only drawback is the location with all the low lifes hanging around. The parking is limited to the street or 7 Eleven next door.
