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".

The ice cream at Milkyway is always fantastic. This is a true Saskatchewan experience. The staff are always friendly and the ice cream is always top notch.

“Great Ice Cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Pretty good and prices are good too. New side furnature would be nice though. Also open up later at night until 11 would be good especially on Friday and Saturday nights.

“Little ice cream gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Friendly folks serving non-diet treats! Always the best! Tip-you are in Regina waiting outside-do not forget the mosquito spray! Despite the mossies and line ups, the treats are worth it! The special order ice cream cakes are top notch! Enjoy!

“Worth the wait!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Milky Way is a summertime tradition for all Regina residents. It is an old fashioned stand outside and order from a window ice cream parlor which is open seasonally. There is always a line, but wait for it... it is Legend...ary. i don't know if they even take anything other than cash. I have always assumed it was cash only so have never even tried!
