“Mooove over - let us in!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Such a busy place - great ice cream cones & shakes!
Cool memorabilia to purchase - from t-shirts to fridge magnets and much more.... Well worth the wait - so be sure to include a stop in your travel plans. Can't miss it; right on main street.

This is a great place in downtown Banff to get excellent ice cream! It might be crowded but it is a fun place to go!

“Wow what ice cream!”

If you stayed here a fortnight and had a different ice cream every day you wouldn't get through them all!! It's absolutely delicious!!

“Delicious ice cream on a warm day after hiking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Single scoop is huge! Homemade, tasty ice cream - perfect after a day of hiking! All 6 of us enjoyed a delicious treat one evening after dinner - while strolling the streets of downtown Banff. Check it out for sure!
