We have visited here before and are never disappointed. Biggest selection of flavours we have found anywhere. Be sure to allow time for kids to peruse thoroughly and make up their minds. Portions are large, so decent value for the amount served. Then you can sit outside on a lot or bench and watch the rooftop goats.

Delicious ice cream, a single serve is 3 scoops of ice cream, great varieties, a place to take your kids too, a "little kitsch", fun to walk around and browse for unusual gifts.

Enjoyed a salt caramel ice cream. Decided to go with the kids size and this one was very substantial. Many, many different flavours and very busy on a hoy day. Will come here again and again.

Not cheap - $4.50 a pop but they give you a lot. Also can have ice cream in the waffle cones for no additional fee.

Not sure why I'm supposed to bring the kids into the ice cream parlor and have hundreds of carved naked statues all around them. Not sue how these go together. I was very disappointed. We've been here before but won't be coming back to the emporium. Leave the naked carvings in a porn shop and not in an ice cream... More

A double is only a dollar more but I can't imagine eating that much ice cream. And what is the secret to Canadian ice cream? It... More

Good selection of ice cream. Would have liked to see a few gelato items, though. The single-scoop is the largest I've seen -- more than enough for me!
