In order to properly honor #NationalIceCreamDay, we’ve decided to dedicate this entire blog post to the top five places to get ice cream all over Montreal! We know that the past few days have been uncomfortably hot and there isn’t much that quite cools you off like a nice ice cream in hand! I don’t know about you guys, but I have a huge weakness for ice cream and have never turned down any opportunity to go out to get one! Whether it’s at eleven at night and I’m already cozied up in bed or I’m about to go an extra twenty minutes out of my way to try a new “hot” ice cream parlor, I’m always down! So calling all ice cream lovers, pay attention because you don’t want to miss out on trying any of these places this summer!
#1: Wild Willies
Wild Willies is a very popular and not to be missed spot located in Pointe-Claire! They are known for their soft served ice-cream that can either be dipped, turned into a blizzard or sundae! If you’re feeling a little adventurous, they you must order their King-Kong banana split filled with multiple scoops of ice cream, toppings, syrups and whipped cream! It is not something you want to miss out on!
#2: La Diperie
I’m sure you’ve all stumbled upon some Instagram pictures with this tiffany blue wall in the background at one point or another… but it’s not the wall the customers keep running back to! It’s this one of a kind ice cream place. La Diperie is located in the middle of the plateau, which is a perfect place for a late night summer stroll. Although this place only serves soft served vanilla ice cream, we promise that it is far from ordinary! Once you have chosen the size you want, customers then get to dip their ice cream into twenty-one different varieties of hot Belgium dips! Such as: dark chocolate, cheesecake, cookie dough, Oreo, chocolate mint and much more. Once you’ve created your hard outer shell you then get to choose what topping you would like varying from pretzels, pecans, coconut shreds, pistachios and many more! To top it off, customers then get to choose if they want their dipped ice cream covered in syrups! The perfect combination to hit any sweet tooth that’s for sure!
#3: Kem CoBa
This tiny neon pink and green ice cream store is too bright to miss and most certainly should not! I just tried it for the first time this past weekend and can confidently say I will be returning very shortly! Kem CoBa is located on Ave. Fairmount! If you’re looking for some good hard ice cream, you don’t want to miss out on their salted butter or their peanut and honey flavors! Something that makes this place so unique is that every week they have a new combination of flavors put together in a soft served form! This week was strawberry sorbet mixed with cheesecake-flavored ice cream! (Probably one of the best things I’ve ever tasted with the perfect consistency) Previous weeks have been dark chocolate and raspberry as well as apple and cinnamon! I strongly suggest going and getting a taste of their soft served combinations!
#4: Point G
Point G is your Point to Go! This ice cream shop is located on Ave. Mont-Royal E in the Plateau as well! They are well known for their delicious Parisian-stye macarons which have been surfacing social media like no other! However, they have used their special talents in the pastry department to create something too delicious to resist! They’ve created homemade creamy, rich ice cream that is now served in between two macaron cookies as a sandwich!! Doesn’t get much better than these two worlds combining!
#5: Monsieur Crémeux
Is the heat getting to you? Feeling too lazy to make it to the ice cream store? Well then Monsieur Crémeux has solved all your problems and come to the rescue! This mobile ice cream truck is hard to resist! This ice cream truck serves an abundance of soft-served flavors as well as refreshing slushies and even better, ice cream sandwiches!
We hope you’ve found something on this list to satisfy those tastebuds as well as to cool of this summer heat! If you weren’t an ice cream lover before, than we’re sorry for converting you into one!
You scream, I scream, We all scream for Ice Cream!
