It’s Ice cream Time! A Guide to Downtown Winnipeg Ice Cream Shops
Springtime in Winnipeg means it’s time to visit your local ice cream parlour. So… do you prefer soft serve to gelato? With toppings or plain? Waffle cone or pint? No matter what your choices are, you can find it in Downtown Winnipeg. Here are my picks for the top ice cream and gelato shops:
Fête Ice Cream
Launched in 2019, Fête has practically become an instant classic for ice cream in Winnipeg. Offering made from scratch ice creams, their product is not only fresh but also delicious. They are constantly launching new flavours, and many of them inspired from our past.
Located just beside Bonnycastle Dog Park, this charming and fun ice cream shop displays a Doggie “Wall of Fame” with many pictures to celebrate their customers’ furry friends.
My favorite flavour: Strawberry Rhubarb crumble
I loved it because: The waffle cones are insanely good!
If you are heading to have some fun at The Forks, Neon Cone will satisfy your ice cream cravings.
Neon Cone Ice cream parlour serves 16 flavours of hard ice cream, including 8 creamy – homemade flavours using Manitoba ingredients – 6 flavours of homemade gelato, and 3 flavours of soft ice cream. If you prefer, you can also take home some pints of ice cream, yummy!
Open all year round and late evenings in the summer, this ice cream shop is a hot spot specially if you are taking the kids out to the park. Their birthday cake flavour is a very popular choice among the little ones.
My favorite flavour: Dark Chocolate (yay!)
I loved it because: They serve hot fudge brownie sundae
Featuring over 16 flavours of ice cream made with high-quality-Manitoban ingredients and creamy layer sundaes, this shop that started as a small 500 sq. ft. candy store on Hargrave Street and has grown into a 1500 sq. ft. store located in the Cargill building has it all!
The soft serve is a high butter fat mix, making it one of the creamiest and richest soft serve ice creams that you can have.
My favorite flavour: Banana Cream pie
I loved it because: Candies and Ice cream… that’s all I have to say.
Location: 201-219 Fort Street, 240 Graham Ave #104
