This is a yearly tradition in our family. We enjoy our drive to Cochrane on a nice summer day and then to decide on a what kind of ice cream we are to get that day.

“DELICIOUS and well priced!!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

I went here over the holidays and the staff were very friendly and helpful with choosing what ice cream we wanted. As well they give you samples if you are unsure of what flavor you would like.The ice cream was so delicious, I am drooling just thinking about it. If you're ever in Cochrane I highly recommend this place, it's worth the wait!!

“Delicious and worth the cost!”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Amazing ice cream! Seriously cannot be beat - I live in Cochrane and on a nice day in the summer, the line up spreads way out onto the sidewalk! People come to Cochrane just to taste MacKay's! Flavors extraordinare!! Everyone loves it. It is a little more pricey than your average ice cream, but well worth the cost and the calories:)

“Best Ice Cream Experience”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

MacKay's has been consistently good for the 40 years that I have gone here. The line ups outside the door on a warm day testify to its popularity. The flavours are rich and authentic. You won't be disappointed... They have history.

“Ice cream is full of artificial flavors and colors”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

The idea of visiting an ice cream shop and enjoying a relaxing walk through a quaint downtown window shopping and licking your treat is wonderful. This shop falls short because none of their selections are free of artificial flavors and artificial colors. For the price I would like to sample an artisan creation made with real fruit and real cream, real chocolate, real vanilla, etc. Skip the storefront and make ice cream at home.
