Description: This building serving their soft serve ice cream has been there for many...
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".

More than good tasting ice cream, anticipation is part of the fun. When my grandson's ice cream fell off the cone, they replaced it free of charge...no more tears.

Ice cream, hard or soft, sundaes or shakes, there is no better place to get a cool treat in Regina, whether it be soring summer or fall. Unfortunately they close during the winter.

Super creamy and very tasty ice cream... a Regina tradition. ..but seriously don't go after supper. Go earlier in the day unless you want to wait 20 minutes or more.

Always a line up but well worth the wait. Daily flavor specials to tickle you fancy. Don't forget they have more than just ice cream too, I love their buttered popcorn yummm

Milky Way is a great little ice cream parlor. A must go to in Regina. Delicious ice cream, may flavors to choose from, good prices, and to top it off, they have special "doggie" ice cream, a little cup of ice cream with little milk bones to top it off!!

The Milky Way isn't a restaurant at all, it's just an ice cream stand... but iconic and outrageously popular nonetheless. There is always a line-up out front, no matter the weather. Of course it's only open seasonally (this is, after all, the Canadian prairie!), but they have a huge selection of hard and soft ice cream, and all those other... More

Although considered a must go to place in the city. I have not had a good experience at Milky Way since I was a child when we would stop on our way to the lake. The ice cream is plastic tasting, the busy street is loud and there is nowhere to sit

All of the traditional flavours that you remember as a kid plus lots of new ones to try! Looks just like the ice cream places on TV
