Been going here for over 25 years, still has great quality ice cream. It is a bit pricy, but no more than other popular ice cream shops. Had some great lactose free options, not just the usual sorbet. Well worth the trip

Amazing ice cream. Definitely one of the best, if not the best place for ice cream in Calgary. They have tons of flavours. This is real cream not fillers and substitute. Our favourite. The portions are also pretty generous. On a warm day if you're in Parkdale stop by.

I love this place! Everyone are super friendly and kind. It is true that prices are a little bit to height. But in my opinion it is worth it.

Recommended by a friend who went to school in Calgary 20 odd years ago. Wasn't sure it will still be there. It had stood the test of time. While it was not difficult to find and there were ample parking space next to it, it was a small and unassuming shop. There was a queue when we entered the shop... More

The ice-cream here is very good quality. The price for quantity is frightening. They charge extra for everything from extra for a cup to $0.25 for using debit card. Four of us got one ice-cream, two with waffle cone and two with cups and it cost $25.00. Portions were not consistent either.

First of all, I took my daughter and her children to LICS on a recent trip to Calgary for a treat based on favourable reviews from trip advisor. My wallet really took a 'lickin' at LICS -we opted for the least expensive option. Flavor variety and ice cream quality was ho-hum - when I asked where they get their ice... More

I have been going to LICS since I was a kid. Now that I live away from Calgary, I only get to go here when I am in town, but always make a visit and get the Chocolate Peanut Butter cup ice cream, my favorite! Great location right off of the trail and on Parkdale Blvd/Bowness Road.

We serve a great selection of de'Lics'ious Ice Cream as well as "Yotopia" (our premium blend of frozen yogurt and frozen fruit) both enjoyed even more in a freshly rolled waffle cone- our signature item! We now offer Gluten-free Cones as well. In addition, we serve lactose-free, no-sugar-added Ice Cream and dairy-free Sorbet... perfect for those discerning patrons with special dietary needs. Established in 1982, we are family-owned and family-friendly! Many consider Lics to be a destination point where family and friends meet and where memories are made!
