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".

“Ritual of spring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

Just the best soft ice cream in Regina. New, exciting flavours daily. Staff always smiling which makes me glad I stopped even though parking can be a bit of an issue. You know summer is coming when you see The Milky Way is open!

“Tasty treats”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Milky Way is like a tradition in Regina. There is lots of selection and variety in their menu. There is hard ice cream, soft ice cream, milkshakes and fancy ice cream dishes. Usually there is a line up so you have to have some time when you go.

“Milky Way Ice Cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

It is one of the most anticipated rites of spring, summer and fall (they are closed for the winter months) to "hit the Milky Way". They serve short order fast food but, it is the ice cream (both hard & soft) whic is go for. Many flavours of hard ice cream (some flavours only available only here) and the soft ice cream is porbably the best anywhere. Great sundaes and shakes etc. On a hot day there is always a linup and for good reasons.
