It’s that time of year when the weather is getting warmer. What better way to beat the heat than with some ice cream? Check out our list of local shops that bring their special twist to this classic summer treat.
Drizzle Ice Cream
Just off of Whyte Avenue is this local Edmonton-owned and operated soft serve ice cream shop. It opened in 2021 and is committed to bringing customers high-quality products. Their soft serve is made with 11% milkfat which makes it extra creamy and smooth. That’s not all! They also offer premium sundaes, 12 different flavours of Belgian chocolate dips, house-baked Belgian waffles, and vegan options!
Yelo’d Ice Cream & Bake Shoppe
Yelo’d is the Filipino word for “iced” and is the only shop in Edmonton that features Filipino and Asian-inspired soft-serve ice cream flavours, such as Ube (purple yam) and Buko Pandan (coconut pandan). But that’s not all! The menu also features yummy pastries including cakes, cookies, and pan-de-sal (A Filipino-style bun), which is used to make in-house ice cream sandwiches.
Made By Marcus
What was once an exclusively Calgarian shop with a local cult following is now a sought-after Whyte Avenue destination! Known for its unique flavour combinations—such as Sea Salt & Goat Milk Caramel or Toasted Hay & Saskatoon Berry—this ice cream shop is now a must-visit.
Kind Ice Cream
The small-batch ice cream shop offers delicious dairy and vegan scoops, pints, and ice cream sandwiches. Choose from one of their 12 Always Flavours (like Vanilla Bean, Salted Caramel, or Mint Chip) or check out which rotating flavours are on the menu. Stop in at their original location in the Ritchie neighbourhood or their new Highlands location!
La Carraia Gelateria Cafe
Get ready for your taste buds to be transported from the heart of downtown Edmonton to Florence, Italy. La Carraia’s gelato comes in 24 creamy flavours, served in cones, cups, or even between brioche buns topped with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. Seasonal fruits and specialty sauces (such as white chocolate and pistachio) can be added to your dish as the perfect final touch.
Blasters Ice Creams and Cakes
What started in a small community in northern Manitoba is now a spot in South Edmonton that serves up hard ice creams, soft serves, cakes, and more. Don’t forget to try the special Blaster’s Brownie for some sweet goodness!
Scoop N Roll Creamery
What started as a one-spot stop quickly grew into a fleet of eight food trucks specializing in their signature rolled style of ice cream. Choose your base and toppings and then watch as your creation is transformed into delicious frozen rolls.
