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".

I've heard about the Milky Way for years. When we moved to Regina this summer, it was one of our first stops. Wow! The options are endless ( a bit overwhelming) but it is well worth the visit. Yum!

I don't get tripadvisor for these reasons. This is a dumpy ice cream stand and the Italian Star is a simple deli not a restaurant. The top two trip advisor restaurants in Regina are NOT restaurants and do not have good food. The categories should be changed.

It is a summer tradition to go to the milky way. My favorite is the strawberry vanilla cone dipped in chocolate.

Did have wait in line for a bit, but the ice cream was rich and creamy with a good portion stuffed into our waffle cones. You can choose from lots of flavors, and different toppings. They have shakes,sundaes, cones, parfaits, hurricones. And if you don't like ice cream they have popcorn, hot dogs and drinks.

If you are visiting Regina , this is a must. Make sure you ask for the waffle cone dipped in chocolate and sprinkles 🍦🍦🍦

Every year , the fine folks of Regina can hardly wait until the Milky Way opens !! Although the wait in line at times seems a bit frustrating , I can honestly say the wait is worth it. Staff are friendly , as is the overall mood while in line. The ice cream is top notch !! Some items do... More

I absolutely love Milky Way Ice Cream. Aside from the wait, which is usually pretty long (only because it is that good!) I rate it higher than Dairy Queen!

My husband and I went here after I was it reviewed on here. Being new to Regina I was looking for a new ice cream - burger place to replace the one in our old town that we loved. I had a strawberry soft ice cream which was really good. I was surprised by how many flavours of soft ice... More

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
