“Great Ice Cream and goodies”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

What did I not like about this place? It even has little trinkets and nighties one can take home as a souvenir. Definitely worth a visit when in Banff. Calories are free and forgiven in this store :)

“Amoooozing Ice Cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

We loved the ice cream at this store in the heart of Banff. The ice cream is rich and creamy, and the flavors are creative and tasty. The store also sells stuff like t-shirts and postcards with goofy plays on words, like "Dairy Potter and the Half Melted Ice Cream" and I am a "Cownadian". It's fun to get a scoop of ice cream and peruse the merchandise.

“Mooove over - let us in!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!
