Village Ice Cream is located downtown on 10 Ave SW. If you drive to the end of the street and you still can’t find it. Look just a little harder because it is tucked back off the street and it is in an area you wouldn’t think you would find an ice cream shop.
We have been coming here now for a few years, you could say were are regular villagers. Thats what they call their customers. This place is always busy. Even when you think it isn’t, wait a few minutes like we did last night and pow, a whole ton of people show up. Nobody gets cranky here, because they have to wait, they know the ice cream is worth it.
Their ice cream is made in small batches. They have about 10 flavours always available but then they have their Seasonal flavours which change all the time. The seasonal flavours I seen last night were Root Beer and Mango. My wife’s favourite is the Strawberry, Lemon and Basil. When they start serving this we usually buy a few pints, and I forgot to mention that you can go there and buy pints of ice cream to take home. They also let you sample the different flavours they have available. Makes it easier to make your decision, or does it?
All of the ice cream is made right on site with local and seasonal ingredients.
Last night we ordered the Toasted Coconut in a waffle cone and I went with a double scoop of Maple Pecan and Salted Caramel in a waffle cone. So excellent. All the flavours are incredible from what I have been told. In all the time I have been going there I have only had one other flavour, I just love the salted caramel and the maple pecan. Sorry, I love what I love.
They also make their own waffle cones. Ours were still warm when they served them to us and who doesn’t want their ice cream in a warm cone.
Parking is a premium down there, so don’t be surprised if you have to park a block away. The parking lot right outside is only meant for small cars as I found out last night when I decided to take my F150 down there. Had to wait an additional 15 minutes for the guy behind me to move. He was parked in a no parking zone.
They also have a small deck with some benches on it for you to enjoy your ice cream, but most people just stand around wherever.
I have had a lot of ice cream in my day and Village Ice Cream is the best. Seriously the best. I have told a ton of people about this place and they all agree.
If you haven’t been there, go, go now. Let me when you are going and I will meet you down there.
