Well, rain or shine we can definitely say that summer has come to Edmonton. And what better way to celebrate than with some great ice cream spots to try around the city? Whether you’re grabbing a double scoop of vanilla or want to broaden your horizons, we’ve got picks for you.

Here are 8 great spots for ice cream in Edmonton.

Kind Ice Cream

Kind only opened in 2019 but we have a feeling that it will be a staple for ice cream in Edmonton. While all of their flavours are worth trying, the one at the top of your list should be cookies and sour cream. Weird, we know. But oh so tasty!

Hours: Open daily, 12 PM-10 PM
Where: 9551 76 Avenue

Roughly translating to the Filipino word for ‘iced’, Yelo’d offers rotating soft-serve ice cream flavours that will have you coming back for monthly treats. And while the soft serve is great, we all too often find ourselves diving into a milkshake instead.

Hours: Sunday/Monday, 12 PM-8 PM, and Tuesday to Saturday, 12 PM-10 PM
Where: 10150A 82 Avenue

Made by Marcus

Originally from Calgary, Made by Marcus has proven itself as worth the trip, and maybe even the line. Grab a scoop of one of their original flavours, then see if you’re feeling something from the rotating list. Right now there’s peanut butter and dill pickle available, which is guaranteed to satisfy your weird flavour craving.

Hours: Open daily, 12 PM-11 PM
Where: 10426 82nd Ave NW

La Carraia

La Carraia hands down has the best sister store on this list. Seriously, how are you running a successful gelato shop in Florence and decide that the next place to open is Edmonton? We absolutely love it. And if you’re a fan of great gelato, you’ll love it too.

Hours: Open daily, 12 PM-10 PM
Where: 10067 109 St NW

Scoop n Roll

We could see Scoop n Roll going nationwide based on how popular it is for ice cream in Edmonton. And we’ll be cheering them on every step of the way. Ice cream made right before your eyes that’s also delicious? You can’t beat that experience.

Hours: Monday to Friday, 3 PM-9 PM, and Saturday/Sunday, 2 PM-9 PM

Revolution

The first of three picks that don’t have a storefront but are absolutely worth seeking out. Revolution makes the note that they create ‘French frozen custard’, which is actually distinct from both traditional ice cream and gelato. The added egg yolks make for an incredibly smooth and decadent product, and one well worth trying.

Little Bear Gelato

We’re recommending Little Bear Gelato for their delicious ice cream sandwiches and the fact that you can buy ‘family packages’ for a discounted price. Let’s face it- that family pack is going to be consumed by just us over the next little while, and we’re going to love every second of it.

Where: Available online

Pinocchio

pinocchio

A sleeper hit since 1980, Pinocchio has all the hallmarks of that brand that becomes a staple in your life. Family-owned? Check. One of the first in the game? Check. Still producing new flavours alongside classics? Check. It’s the ice cream at home trifecta!
