While Mister is famous for their creme brûlée ice cream, they also sell ice cream by the scoop in Kitsilano and Yaletown. They have over a dozen seasonal flavours and some come in ice cream sammie form as well.

The packaging of La Glace ice cream is beautiful but the ice cream itself is also delicious. This French ice cream shop started as a little cart, and now serves seasonal flavours of rich and creamy, truly decadent ice cream in a variety of seasonal flavours.

Rain or Shine serves up seasonally inspired ice cream made with wholesome, locally sourced ingredients. They have gluten and egg free options, and also sell ice cream cakes. With three locations in Vancouver, they serve ice cream Rain or Shine.

Main Street’s Yum Sweet Shop serves up some delicious ice cream. They can scoop you some traditional ice cream or they have soft serve, as well as milkshakes and ice cream sandwiches, too.

Earnest has been a beloved maker of ice cream in Vancouver since they opened in 2012. New flavours are announced at the beginning of every month, and you can pick up a scoop, a sundae, a sammie or a re-usable, returnable jar at any of Earnest’s four locations.
