We stopped here after our trip to port stanley. The place was packed full of screaming crying sugar filled kids but the noise and chaos was worth it. The brownie Sundae was great. They have lots of selections to choose from.

Shaw's is a very nice old-fashioned ice cream parlour. Their selection of real cream locally made ice cream is very good and tasty. There is seating outside.

Almost everyone in our three car pool decided that we would stop at Shaw's on our way from London, Ontario to Port Stanley and Lake Erie. The other one was looking out of the window on the opposite side of the street with headphones on. We figured that a place of this size this far out of town, must make... More

I love Shaw's and have loved it since I was a little kid. I come back to visit often as I crave their fresh and wonderful treats. My absolute favorite is the Raspberry & Truffles, it's amazing!! I will keep coming back here as long as they stay open...

Shaw's offers an amazing array of flavours of ice cream. You pay by the 100 grams so it can get expensive.

Expect a queue whatever time of day you go to Shaw. The ice cream is weighed either in a cup or waffle so have as much as you want with however many different flavours as you want Would recommend

My family has been going to Shaw's on the way back to London from the beach at Port Stanley since the 1950s. They have a really wide choice of delicious flavours. There are picnic tables outside. When the weather is cold and they're less busy, there are a couple of tables inside.

Pricey ice cream as they weigh it. Tasty but expensive so not a common stop for us. We are in port Stanley even weekend in the summer and sure wouldn't stop too often because of the price.
