There are tons of ice cream parlors in Vancouver, however a few of them actually stand out from the group. Let me stroll you thru my favourite ice cream parlors, and spotlight what’s so good about them.

1. Dolce Amore

Vegan choices accessible

Pistachio Padrino (one scoop waffle $6)

Dolce Amore — aka the Gelato Mafia, is an Italian household story, so their gelatos are as legit as they get. They opened their ice cream parlor within the coronary heart of Little Italy 20 years in the past they usually have been going sturdy since then. I bumped into their meals truck in the course of the Khatsahlano competition and I used to be not anticipating a lot, however the Pistachio Padrino was so creamy it blew my thoughts. One week later, I visited their store and I used to be offered! Dolce Amore has month-to-month function flavors so each go to could be a new discovery.

2. Rain or Shine

Vegan, gluten-free and egg-free choices accessible

Salted Caramel (one scoop waffle $5.5) & Peanut Butter (single cup $4.5)

This can be a no brainer. Rain or Shine is an establishment in Vancouver and its status is nicely deserved. Their home made ice cream is made out of scratch with sustainable, recent and pure elements. They’ve 3 areas in Vancouver (Kits, UBC, Cambie) in addition to a meals truck stationed at English Bay. What’s cool is that they’ve restricted flavors popping up each week to maintain us excited. I extremely suggest the Malted Milk Chocolate with Honeycomb. Additionally they have excellent sundaes and milkshakes, in addition to (an ice cream) taco Tuesday!

3. Earnest Ice Cream

Whiskey Hazelnut (one scoop waffle $5)

Subsequent in line is Earnest Ice Cream. This ice cream parlor has a extra basic taste providing, however it doesn’t make their ice cream much less distinctive. Should you like ice cream sandwiches you’ll be happy as they’ve a number of on their menu. I like to recommend their Whiskey Hazelnut ice cream, which is one in all their greatest sellers. It has a really nice salted and buttery aftertaste. Earnest Ice Cream has 4 areas in Vancouver, all the best way as much as North Van. So regardless of the place you’re, you in all probability don’t have to go far to seize one in all their goodies!

4. La Glace

Vegan and gluten-free choices accessible

Vegan Cookies & Cream (one scoop waffle $7.5)

La Glace is a French artisanal ice cream store positioned on the southern border of Kitsilano. The store itself could be very fairly. The sunshine blue colours and floral patterns are considerably harking back to a French 18th Century décor. All their ice cream is hand-crafted they usually often have about 12 month-to-month rotating flavors in retailer. It’s also possible to pre-order wonderful trying ice cream desserts. I had their Vegan Cookies & Cream — my first vegan ice cream ever! If I wasn’t advised, I’d not have guessed that it was a dairy-free ice cream. The massive chunks of cookies had been scrumptious and the little meringue positioned on prime was a cute addition. The plus is that they’ve a pretty big patio, so you possibly can chill out and revel in your ice cream on the spot!

5. Perverted Ice Cream

Vegan choices accessible

Soiled Limerick (Lime) & Soiled Blonde (Salted Caramel)$10 every

EVERY TIME I COME I SCREAM. Their motto units the tone. Perverted Ice Cream makes a speciality of mushy serves, which isn’t quite common, and their signature waffle cones are pitch darkish. Their menu is fairly cryptic (DiCaprio mud anybody?), however that’s what makes this ice cream parlor so distinctive and enjoyable. The Soiled Blonde is my go-to however in addition they have an intriguing W.T.F? ice cream that may be sizzling or chilly, candy or salty and painful or pleasurable. Don’t ask me, you’ll must attempt it!

6. Rocky Level Ice Cream

Vegan choices accessible

Brown Butter Pecan (one scoop waffle $5)

Initially from Port Moody, Rocky Level Ice Cream has made a reputation for itself in Vancouver. They don’t have an precise retailer within the metropolis however you possibly can make sure that you’ll spot their meals truck at any main occasion or competition in Vancouver. The Brown Butter Pecan was an awesome decide, the large chunks of pecans had been very satisfying. Though they don’t have parlors downtown, they’ve some in Port Moody, New Westminster and Coquitlam.

7. Tsujiri


Shiratama Parfait ($9.50)

Tsujiri will not be an ice cream parlor, however their Shiratama Parfait might be categorized as ice cream. I LOVE Japanese sweets and I actually imagine they’re underrated. It won’t be for everybody, however when you like matcha and mochi, you’ll love this. The bottom consists of warabi mochi and azuki beans. It’s topped with matcha mushy serve, shiratama, a stupendous chestnut and a few syrup. Some kinako powder is sprinkled on prime for a scrumptious contact of umami!

8. Passione Gelato

Vegan choices accessible

Tiramisu and Pistachio (2 scoops in a cup $8)

Passione Gelato is a small neighborhood ice cream parlor. They use natural and seasonal elements to make their hand-crafted ice cream. They’ve about 15 flavors in retailer and I attempted their Tiramisu and Pistachio gelatos. I’d say Passione Gelato is a stable possibility, however it stays very customary relating to flavors and choices. Be aware that there isn’t a seating inside or outdoors the gelateria (there are a number of benches close by the place you possibly can sit on non-rainy days), however principally, you both have to face or eat on the go, which I’m not a giant fan of. Regardless, if you’re a purist and like ice cream with out a fuss, that is in all probability a very good match for you!

9. Uno Gelato

Vegan choices accessible

Oreo Cookies Chocolate Waffle cone 1 scoop ($7)
Roasted Hazelnut & Akbar Mashti Waffle Cone 2 scoops ($8.50)

Uno Gelato is one other well-known native ice cream parlor with 3 areas in Vancouver (Kitsilano, Downtown, False Creek). They provide gelatos and sherbets handmade in micro-batches with pure and native elements. I discover their taste providing restricted in comparison with different parlors, however they alter usually so it doesn’t get boring. I attempted their Oreo Cookies and had a number of licks of their Roasted Hazelnut and Akbar Mashti ice cream. I loved it however I need to say that I remorse paying an additional greenback for the waffle cones. They had been industrial and tasteless, in order that they type of ruined the ice cream for me. That’s too unhealthy… subsequent time I’ll persist with the cup.
