It’s officially Summer and one of the best ways to cool off is by indulging in everyone’s favourite treat—ice cream.
Check out the best ice cream in Vancouver by visiting one of these spots.
Best Ice Cream In Vancouver
Rain or Shine Ice Cream
Hit up this shop to try out a variety of tantalizing flavours. They have Malted Milk Chocolate, Blueberry Balsamic, Honey Lavender, Cracked Mint and London Fog. Did we mention they also do ice cream tacos? They’re not hard to find, they have three central locations—UBC, 3382 Cambie Street and one at 1926 West 4th Avenue.
This popular joint often has a line up out the door, but it’s well worth the wait. They have a unique menu of gelato, including Black Sesame, Banana Bread, Earl Grey Tea and Matcha. Grab a scoop or cup at 1001 West Cordova Street.
Earnest Ice Cream
If you haven’t been here yet, can you even call yourself a Vancouverite? They have some awesome regular flavours (Espresso Flake, Whiskey Hazelnut), rotating flavours (Apple Pie, Carrot Cake) and vegan options (Strawberry Brownie, Toasted Coconut). They’re slowly taking over Vancouver with four locations. Check them out on the North Shore at 127 West 1st Street or their Vancouver locations: 1485 Frances Street, 3992 Fraser Street and 1829 Quebec Street.
Soft Peaks Ice Cream
We all scream for ice cream at this spot. They have an awesome selection of soft-serve: Honeycomb Peak, Salty Himalayan and Mudslide (just to name a few). They have a Gastown location at 25 Alexander Street. If you’re outside of Vancouver you can also grab a scoop in Metrotown at 4603 Kingsway.
Buckets Ice Cream
Try out liquid nitrogen ice cream at this eatery. Using liquid nitrogen helps create the ice cream faster and it often has a smoother, creamier texture than traditional ice cream. Cool off with Salted Caramel, Strawberry Coconut, Oolong Tea, Cookies & Cream and even a Sweet Maple Corn flavour. They also have a bunch of ready-to-go pints and ice cream sandwiches to satisfy that sweet tooth. Find them at 3330 Main Street.
Thanks for being okay with eating melted ice cream 🙃 ⠀⠀ (it did melt within like 10s tho cuz it was sooo freakin hot today) ⠀⠀ 📷: Black sesame and London fog ice cream on their house made cookie cone. What we love about Tangram Creamery is how their ice cream is not as sweet as your typical ice cream, and they really know how to do their tea flavors right – tried Hojicha and Matcha last time, fell in love with the Hojicha cuz it tastes like Chatime Roasted Milk Tea in ice cream form!! ⠀⠀ Guysss, our last final is TOMORROWWW and then we’ll be heading down to Seattle and Portland!!!! Hit us up with the recs, would be mucho appreciated!!! :):)
Get your ice cream fix with one of their delicious flavours: Salted Caramel, Root Beer, Rum Raisin or Tahitian Vanilla. They also have some vegan options and a selection of sorbets. Make a stop here at 2729 Arbutus Street.

A newly-opened ice cream shop with a twist. The ice cream is tasty and the theme is full of innuendos. They have a wicked Cream Chocolate Swirl topped off with root beer, pretzels and bacon bits. They serve their ice cream in a cup or a charcoal cone. Check them out at 797 Thurlow Street.
