Ranked #1 of 451 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".

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.

I especially love the orange softserve and the grape, there is nothing out there that comes even close to them. All are good, but it depends on the day, what you will get. Shakes are good as well as the food. The lines are crazy but well worth it.

This is some of the best ice cream I've ever had. Stop here even if there is a line-up, I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Just the best soft ice cream in Regina. New, exciting flavours daily. Staff always smiling which makes me glad I stopped even though parking can be a bit of an issue. You know summer is coming when you see The Milky Way is open!
