Who doesn’t love ice cream in the summertime? The best ice cream in South Eastern Ontario comes from love and quality ingredients. If you’re a plain Jane or a risk taker, there’s plenty to indulge in with these sweet options.
You Gotta Try: Campfire Cream (their take on s’mores.) Charred, heated marshmallows- will remind you of roasting marshmallows over a fire.
You Gotta Try: Banana Split Soft Serve with pineapple and whipped cream all nestled between a banana. Have you ever put pineapple in ice cream? Try it, you won’t regret it.
You Gotta Try: Beyond the plethora of flavours, Nice Ice Baby offers dairy free, gluten free, and vegan flavours. We suggest Vegan Coconut Vanilla.
You Gotta Try: Besides their famous Loonie Shakes, you need to try their Tornadoes (think McDonald McFlurrys and Dairy Queen Blizzards.)
You Gotta Try: You name it they have it. Fresh gelato, sorbetto, ice cream, and frozen yogurt. Plus they offer weekly featured flavours as requested by customers! We requested to try Cereal Milk flavour. *Note: this suggestion is a result of watching the Christina Tosi episode on Chef’s Table WAY too many times. They delivered with their own spin by using Froot Loops.
You Gotta Try: Vanilla Lovers Vanilla. Nothing basic about this flavour!
Located on the west end of Kingston, Mile And A Quarter offers COUNTLESS varieties of their soft serve ice cream. Choose from their 55 flavours and customize your own!
You Gotta Try: Peanut Butter Cheesecake
You Gotta Try: For the daring or the not-so-daring, so many flavours to choose from, we like Crazy Cardamom.
You Gotta Try: Death by Chocolate, all the chocolate you could ever need!
You Gotta Try: Apple Crisp Sundae. Vanilla ice cream, topped with apple pie filling, hot caramel sauce, apple crumble then topped with peanuts, whipped cream, and a cherry! Holy mother of delicious. Watch it, you’re drooling.
Park the car in Kingston and take the ferry by foot over to Wolfe Island for an explorative day and finish with an ice cream cone at Cafe Tenango! There are many delicious flavours and selections of hard ice cream and yoghurt – the perfect way to finish a day!
Step inside this tropical themed ice cream parlour and prepare to have your sweet cravings fulfilled! Not only do they sell Reid’s Dairy Ice Cream but also Milkshakes, cotton candy and oh so much more!
Stay cool and eat ice cream.
