An institution in Niagara. Real country experience- out of the way drive in the middle of nowhere. Lots of parking. Line-ups on hot summer weekends. Ice cream is tasty but expensive. Eat outside at picnic area with the fresh aroma of cow manure!

No trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake is complete for me without a visit to the Avondale Dairy. This time I chose a dip of coffee heath bar with a dip of kalua fudge.

I go to this dairy bar about twice a month on average. It's a nice short drive out into the country where the ice cream is actually made. The atmosphere is unchanged in almost 50 years so you get some nostalgia too with "old" black & white photographs on the wall of area points of interest. There are swings for... More

Fantastic place to go for sundaes. The milkshakes are amazing. The ice cream is sold by weight and isn't cheap. The quality is very good. Staff are efficient. On a warm day be prepared for line ups.
